Sweet & Tangy Homemade Red Relish to use on your Burgers and in other recipes. This is a seriously good sauce that you are not going to want to miss out on. Red Relish or Hamburger Relish was a condiment for burgers offered by both Bicks and Heinz. They have since discontinued it, I believe.

Below I have listed both Bicks & Heinz ingredients for Red Relish, Green Relish, Heinz Ketchup Chili Sauce. From this, we can see that most of the ingredients that make up a Red Relish are contained within the Green Relish and Ketchup or Chili Sauce.

Bottling Red Relish

The great thing about this recipe is that you don’t have to make it from scratch or process it through a water bath for canning. It uses 2 ingredients. It will last in the fridge just as long as the Sweet Relish or Chili Sauce does. Just keep it refrigerated.

Once the Green Relish or Chili Sauce jars are empty, wash them out for storing Red Relish. The Chili Sauce Jars are really nice for storing other items like BBQ Sauces, Dressing, Meat Oil, and other Sauces.
