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!

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.

    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?

    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?
