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.

Homemade Red Relish
This is an extremely quick and easy recipe. Just combine Sweet Relish & Chili Sauce to create on-demand red relish.
However, if you were to take this further. Then it would appear that the additional ingredients that can be added are as follows.
- Red Pepper
- Corn Starch
- maybe Cauliflower
- maybe more sugar
In any event, this is an excellent relish that can be served on a variety of items. It is also used as an ingredient to make the Mozza Sauce for the
A & W Mozza Burger.
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. Which have already been processed and will last in the fridge just as long as the sweet relish or Chili Sauce does.
Make it up and place it into a Mason jar cap it and refrigerate it. Take it out for your next BBQ.
- 6 Tbl Sweet Green Relish
