I know, I say this for every new recipe I try, but this Oscar Relish is my new favorite food! What can I say, I like food! Don’t judge! 🙂 It is sweet, yet tangy. The perfect condiment to replace boring ketchup! It more resembles a chutney than a relish and is great with meat, fish, chicken, pork and eggs (The list that I have tried so far)!
In September I had so many peaches and tomatoes to use up! I had to come up with some new, different recipes! I stumbled on this Oscar Relish and knew I had to make this! Mostly because it used both peaches and tomatoes!
It more resembles a chutney to me, but it’s not spicy hot. It is such a great condiment! I’m crazy about it! I’ve tried to research the origins of it but have come up with nothing! If anyone knows, please leave me a comment below.
I love different condiments! I get tired of boring ketchup, mayo and mustards. This condiment fits the bill for different! The flavor is hard to describe! It has a hint of sweetness from the peaches. A bit of heat from the ground hot pepper and a bit of tang from the vinegar!
How to Can Oscar Relish
Like most relishes, this Oscar Relish could not be easier! Just peel the tomatoes and peaches, chop them up! Stem and seed peppers and chop then just grind the onion and peppers in the food processor.
Then you just cook it down for a couple of hours.
