Creole Hot Pepper Sauce

5 qt Vinegar
5 qt Hot red peppers; washed
3 lb Onion; peeled, quartered
3 Whole garlic buds; peeled, chopped
1/2 c Sugar
1/2 c Salt
2 tb Pepper
1 1/2 tb Lemon juice (optional)

Combine 4 quarts vinegar, peppers, onions, and garlic in a large Dutch oven; bring to a boil. Cook over low heat until vegetables are tender, about 1 hour. Drain vegetables, reserving liquid. Place vegetables in blender; blend until chopped. Press vegetables through a rice strainer and discard seeds.

Combine pureed vegetables, reserved vegetable liquid, and remaining ingredients in a large Dutch oven. Cook until thickened over medium heat. Let mixture simmer 30 minutes.

Quickly pour into sterilized jars, leaving 1/8-inch head space. Cover at once with metal lids and screw metal band tight. Process in boiling water bath for 10 minutes.
