Subway's spicy red pepper sauce

Sauce? Pepper relish (but not sticky sweet like relish)? I am trying to get this recipe for summer canning. It is red peppers, green peppers (not sure which is the warm one) & onion in a mildly sweet, tangy liquid - not jelly-like at all. A DF gets extra tubs of this stuff every time he eats at Subway & has concocted the most fab appetizer ever.
He has a 1/2 gallon glass jar of the Subway chili relish & he adds additional cider vinegar. He then peels & lightly steam cloves of garlic (until just barely tender) & tosses them in the jar to marinate. He must eat at Subway a lot - I don't want to develop that habit LOL.
Anyway the garlic cloves take on simply the nicest spicy mildly warm slightly sweet mildly tangy flavor - addictive! Would be oh so good on freshly grilled bits of ciabatta bread.
I'd love to locate Subway's secret recipe (Googling has revealed nada for me) so i could can this up with summer bounty - PC, water bath or even just store in fridge but I suspect it would be OK for water bath from taste.
Any help would be most appreciated.
Such a nice way to eat 8 to 10 garlic cloves a day.
