      This sounds like another great way to use up a bumper crop of peppers. Thanks for sharing -- I can't wait to try it with the next bumper crop.

      I have the same recipe and it is THE best! I've tried lots of different variations, but this one is so simple and tasty! Thanks for sharing! Oh, and our favorite use for it? Slathering it on homegrown ham steaks right before taking them off the grill! Talk about out of this world! Great hub!
