The method of preparation of green hot pepper in apple and tomato sauce
We’ll prepare the filling for a couple, so it will turn out thick, with a rich taste. In addition, it is very convenient - for about half an hour (until the vegetables are steamed) there is to cut the peppers, so it will take a little time to harvest.
So, peel the onion, cut into large slices.
I advise you to take the apples sour, Antonovka will do just the way. We cut out the core, along with the peel we cut into four parts.
We cut the tomatoes in half, you don’t need to peel the peel, you still have to wipe the vegetables through a sieve, so that all the excess remains in it.
We cut celery finely, it is an essential ingredient in any sauce, it gives flavor and sweetness.
If there is no stem, take the root, peel and cut into thin slices.
Peppers are peeled from seeds, cut into four parts.
We mix the vegetable mix (mixture) for a couple. If there are no special devices that make life easier for the cook, then for these purposes a regular colander is suitable, which we put on a pot of boiling water. Tightly cover with a lid, cook over low heat for about half an hour.
This is how steamed vegetables look - apples and tomatoes are almost falling apart, everything is very soft and tender.
We wipe through a sieve, but in order to reduce time, I advise you first to grind the ingredients in a food processor, and then wipe to get rid of the peel and seeds.
We mix the grated vegetables with sugar, add salt, taste it. Sauce is sent to the stove, bring to a boil, cook for 5 minutes.
While the vegetables are steamed, there is time for cutting the pepper. Do not be frightened by curves, curved specimens, heat treatment evens all.
We put the peppers literally for half a minute in boiling water, cool, cut off the stem. Make an incision along, clean the seeds. Rinse peeled peppers with clean water, rinse with boiling water.
In the prepared jars, put the peppers so that they fill the jar to the top, but are located in it quite freely.
Fill the peppers with hot apple-tomato filling, close tightly, sterilize for 10 minutes jars with a capacity of 0.5 l.
