Pinterest Hidden ImagePinterest Hidden ImagePinterest Hidden ImagePinterest Hidden Image

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.

    Mmmm. I love this relish!! I can just imagine how it tastes just by looking at your photos! I think it would be hard for me not to eat it all by the spoonful!

    This looks and sounds delicious! I’d love to have a big jar in the fridge ready to dress up burgers and who knows what else? Sorry if this is a silly question – is pickling spice something you can usually find at the regular grocery store? I don’t do much pickling or canning, so just don’t know where to find it!

    1. You can find it in most larger grocery stores. I actually make my own. It’s just a bunch of spices you already have in your pantry! Great idea! I’ll do a post on that for you! Thanks Monica!

    It sounds delicious and is definitely something I think my little boy would love as he goes crazy for any type of sauce or ketchup variation.

  4. 5 stars
    What a great sauce. Forget about ketchup, just have this Oscar Relish. I never use ketchup anyway. The story of this recipe probably is: a farmer called Oscar had so many peaches and tomatoes to use up that he came up with this recipe. Have you checked if you have a neighbour called Oscar?

    This sounds so good! I would have never thought of pairing tomatoes and peaches! I bet it tastes amazing.

    This relish looks so yummy. Definitely would love to try some. I also like the peaches in there, since peaches are my favorite fruit!

  7. This sounds yummy! I’d love to know where they name comes from- it reminds me of Oscar the Grouch, but I bet that’s not where it’s from. LOL

  8. 5 stars
    I’ve never made my own relish but this combo sounds so unique and delicious! I would never think to combine peach, tomato and pepper.

  9. 5 stars
    This is positively mouthwatering! I’d never think to combine tomatoes with peaches, but it makes so much sense. The color of the relish, along with the chunky texture is just to die for. Beautiful photos too, Beth!

    1. Thanks so much Lisa! That’s high praise coming from you Lisa! I’ve seen peach salsas that include tomatoes which I thought, no way! This get nice and caramelized so they end up being great together!
