Red Pepper Savory Jam

6-8 sweet red peppers
2 tablespoons salt
1 cup red wine vinegar
2 cups sugar
1 dash hot pepper sauce or cayenne pepper

Cut peppers in half and seed them.
In the food processor, grind them coarsely.
Place in a bowl, add salt and cover with plastic wrap.
Leave overnight in a cool place.
The next day drain off half the liquid.
Combine the ground peppers, remaining liquid, vinegar, sugar and cayenne in a saucepan.
Bring to a boil and reduce it and then reduce to a simmer.
Cook for one hour, until thickened, stirring occasionally.
When thick, pour into sterilized jars and either seal or refrigerate.
