Relish Recipes

( Please see the sections on "Hints"  and Conversion Tables )

 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".
