'relish' on Serious Eats
The classic fresh Mexican condiment made with tomatoes, onions, and chilies. Ours gets an added flavor boost with a bit of pre-salting and draining. Perfect on tacos, fajitas, and burritos.
This fresh, tangy, and fruity sweet pepper relish livens up a homely hot dog in a way fitting for the start of a new grilling season.
This classic condiment is a type of seasoned anchovy butter that is also known as Patum Peperium. The strong anchovy flavor is complemented by cayenne pepper and ground nutmeg, and fresh lemon juice cuts through both the butter and the anchovy to add just a little lightness to this intense compound butter.
A simple sweet-hot pickle and pepper relish for hot dogs and hamburgers.
I loved how this all came together. The first taste was of sweet and tangy corn, but the sweetness slowly fades, giving way to the heat from the jalapeno and an earthiness from the chili powder and cumin. The "relish" can double as a dip for tortilla chips, salad topping, or taco condiment—it'll add excellent flavor to whatever it touches.
This cucumber relish is sweet and tangy with a nice note of celery and a little bitterness from the mustard seed to really round it out. It's perfect for canning, but there's no reason it can't be used right away—I expect this batch to be gone by the end of a Memorial Day cookout.
