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.

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.
