ABOUT THE RELISH
When you think relish, the first thing that comes to mind is pickles, right? Not in this jar of deliciousness! This cabbage-based relish is a mix of sweet, mild and hot peppers combined with seasonings and vinegar. Whether you eat it with your chips or add it to your deviled eggs, potato salad, hot dogs, shrimp tacos or scrambled eggs, this relish will send your taste buds on a ride.
Feel free to try it on your green beans, collard greens or brats. Use it as a side or in pasta sauce. Once you try it, you will know exactly what to do! You will truly want to RELISH EVERYTHING!
Hello! I am Mercedes Wilson – a busy wife and mother of four. I am known for wearing many hats but I am a foodie at heart and my family and friends can vouch for that. Since I was a child, food has been the main topic of my conversations. I also host a segment on the local ABC affiliate in Buffalo, NY that talks of food as we share recipes and the stories behind it. Food, is the great equalizer in my eyes. It has the power to bring us all together in ways that heal the soul!
HOW IT BEGAN
Growing up my grandparents had eleven children! They had a huge garden in their backyard and from it, my grandmother canned a lot of food. One of the dishes that she canned was something they all called Cha Cha Relish and my Grandmother used to put it on her collard greens to give it a little kick. I learned about Cha Cha Relish while doing a Recipes for Life © segment with my father in early 2020. We did collard greens with relish and everyone fell in love with it.
When my father mentioned it, I had no clue what it was. He did his best to describe the flavors to me and I made it until my father said it reminded him of what my grandmother used to make. I have since made it for all of my friends and family to try and they fell in love with it too! The relish that you see in stores today, is that exact relish – the one inspired by my grandmother that was loved by so many. I hope this makes her so proud.
