Sharp tangy relishes are
based on fruit and / or vegetables and usually contain vinegar and sugar, but generally
not in large enough quantities to preserve the ingredients for as long as other pickles.
Relishes must be kept in the refrigerator and will only keep for about a month. They add
zest to hot or cold meats, curries and savory snacks. Please read the section on "Hints".
