My Ground Cherry Ketchup

2 cups cape gooseberries (groundcherries)
2 onions, large finely minced
6 apples
2 green mild bell peppers
4 red mild bell peppers
1 cup white vinegar
3 cups white sugar
2 teaspoons pickling spices
1 teaspoon black pepper


Mince the onions. Cut green and red mild peppers into pieces as big as a stamp. Pass the spices and the black pepper through the blender to obtain a spice powder. Peel, take away the core and cut the apples in 1 inch pieces. Peel and wash the ground cherries (physalis peruviana) thoroughly. Mix all the ingredients in a big thick cooking pot and bring to a boil, then reduce to medium heat. Let cook until the liquid acquire a syrupy consistency, stirring often to prevent sticking at the bottom of the pot(about 40 minutes). Pour into sterilized Mason jars and close the lids. Verify that the jars are vacuum-sealed.
