Market Watch: Pepper Relish
My market is overflowing with pickles, pickled beets, jams, and salsas – it’s the farmers’ way of getting more mileage out of their seasonal goodies. Try out a savory take on jams and jelly with a personal fave – tangy pepper relish.

Sweet and spicy relish is made from cooking down fresh and dried sweet peppers and chilies, onions, vinegar, sugar, and spices. Spread it on sandwiches or add a tablespoon to homemade vinaigrette or hummus. For a simple and delicious appetizer, pour relish over low fat cream cheese or goat cheese and serve with whole grain crackers or thin slices of crusty baguette.
