Robbie's Relish

My grandmother's recipe for a spicy, sweet, and tangy pepper relish.
Course Appetizer, Condiments
Cuisine American


  • 1/2 onion
  • 10-12 red serrano peppers stems and seeds removed
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 cup vinegar
  • 1 tsp salt


  • Finely chop the onion and peppers. I use this awesome chopper to keep the onion tears and pepper hands at bay.
  • Cover onions and peppers with hot water and let sit for 3-5 minutes. Drain.
  • In a small saucepan, add onions+peppers, sugar, salt, and vinegar. Boil for 20 minutes.
  • Pour relish into a jar, and let it cool before storing in the refrigerator.
