Ever since I tasted an acquaintance's Sweet Heat Pickle Relish, I’ve been addicted. I love it on hotdogs, hamburgers, and especially ham sandwiches.
Unwilling to keep buying it at $5.50 per tiny little jar, I decided this year to try to make my own.
I looked at countless online recipes, and experimented with lots of different spices. We made several trial batches, each time tweaking the spices and sugar a bit. And I think I’ve finally developed a winner!!!!
You know what the unusual spices are? Cinnamon and All-spice! Sounds crazy I know, but it tastes delicious! It’s too early to post the recipe. I want to let the jars sit a spell and then try it and see how the flavors have melded. But I’m really really excited!
If we still love it after it has sat for a while, I’ll definitely share the recipe with you!
I’m curious, though. Have you ever heard of adding such spices to a pickle relish?? My mom thinks I’m daffy, lol!
Now I’m just trying to decide what to do with the previous experimental batches! I hate to waste all that relish. But no one wants anything but the final product now! :)
