Home Made Relish RecipesRelishes are very versatile, some will go well with cooked meals, especially curries, and some are just right for adding a little punch to a summer salad. Relishes will mature in storage but they’re usually fine to eat after just a week.

Relishes tend to be half way between a chutney and a pickle. Although they use the same kinds of fruits and vegetables, the finished texture tends to be different. The fruit or vegetables are cut into small pieces or coarsely chopped and a combination of spices and flavourings are used to make them sweet, sour, spiced etc. The preservative is the vinegar which should be above 5% acetic content.

Not all relishes require cooking and, those that do, take a shorter time than chutneys so that the ingredients keep their shape. This makes them quick and easy to make. You will need the same equipment as for making chutneys.
