A sweet, spicy and slightly sour relish perfect for slathering over burgers… or just about anything.
I’m nearly disappointed that it took me this long to come up with this recipe. One of my best friends, a lifelong Texan, exclaimed ‘GENIUS!’ when I told him about the idea. I think (as both a relish and candied jalapeno lover) he was a little upset he hadn’t thought of it either. I combine candied jalapenos with both sweet gherkins and some dill pickles for balance. The result is a sweet, warmly spicy and slightly sour relish you’ll end up putting on everything. This candied jalapeno relish is really incredible as a simple burger topping.
This relish is 1000% better when it’s allowed to mellow out, so I definitely recommend eating it the next day. It’ll keep for up to two weeks in the fridge.
