This is so good! Very easy to make, we canned a bunch for Christmas gifts. I added a can of whole cranberries in sauce, 3 T. diced jalapeno peppers and 1/2 cup brown sugar to each batch I made. Both times I've made this (the original recipe and my version) it didn't thicken on it's own, I added 3 T. corn starch. They're right---this is very addicting!!
Vegan I think not white sugar is not vegan. This should be moved to the normal appetizer recipe section; especially as the poster lists cream cheese to to spread on the crackers for use with this sugar concoction:(
Yummy! So quick and tasty. Wonderful mixed with cream cheese and served as a dip with crackers.
This is delicious. I serve it at cocktail parties and give it as a hostess gift with baked pita chips. It is probably too spicy for most children, although you can cut back on the red pepper flakes. ADDICTING!!!
Sweet, spicy, fast, cheap, & easy. Sort of like me:o):o):o) I cut the pepper flakes back to around 1 tsp. & added cornstarch as others did. It isn't even cool yet & half of it's gone. Awesome with cheese or just plain crackers. I will always have this in the fridge. Thank you so much for sharing! Love it!:o)
Very similar to a Harry and David pepper and onion relish I recently tried. Add 1 cup of this Indian Relish to 8 oz of cream cheese (mix well) and you have an amazing dip to serve with Wheat Thin crackers!! You can add crushed pineapple or pecans for a different flavor. This recipe makes 3 cups which is probably a great amount served by itself, but definitely would half the mixture if you plan to mix with Cream cheese, as this recipe will create 3 batches of Cream Cheese Relish Dip. When I made the relish it did not thicken, so after an hour of simmering on the stove I added 2 tablespoon of cornstarch mixed in 2 tablespoons of water and it thickened right up! This is a must try Relish and will be great for any occasion.
Yummy! I have had a similar relish and had never been able to find the recipe. This is it! I simmered it for 30 minutes, however, I ended up boiling it again for a few minutes at the end to thicken it up. It also caramelized the onions. Super!
The beautiful red color of this dish makes this a perfect Christmas appetizer. The relish, almost like candy, is paired well with the cream cheese. I used my stick blender to puree the relish and had no problems with it being runny. I made the recipe as written and enjoyed the hot bite. This sauce would also make a very good sweet and sour pork or shrimp dish.
