Righteous Red Pepper and Onion Relish

Isn’t relish great? its so versatile. You can put it on stuff, under stuff and between things. You can also smear it. I love smearing, it gives me a sort of warm feeling, especially when it is the smearing of a relish of this unimaginable magnitude. We had it with Burger Me, its Veggie burgers but you could smear it ‘pon whatever tickles your fancy. Post Tom for smearing ideas.



  • 1 red pepper
  • 1 medium onion
  • 1 second of white wine vinegar
  • A splash of hot water
  • Half a punch of raisins
  • Punch of sugar
  • salt and Pepper

Finely slice the onion and the red pepper. Heat a splash of olive oil in a pan and sweat the onion and red pepper down with a bit of salt and pepper. Cook ‘em till they can’t cook no more.

While that’s sweating, put the raisins in a bowl with boiling water to plump them up.

When the pepper and onions are all sweated down, add about 1 second of white wine vinegar, a splash of hot water and a punch of sugar. Get it on a full heat and reduce it to a syruppy consistency.

Strain off the now chubby raisins and add to the syruppy goo.

And that’s it. Damn easy. And of course you could multiply the ingredients and make a much bigger batch. Keep it in your fridge in a preserving jar. or any old jar for that matter. Then you can smear at your leisure.
