Ways to use
Replace tomato sauce, ketchup or tomato paste in recipes with Sweet Tomato Relish. For instance, instead of tomato sauce on meatloaf, spread an equivalent amount of tomato relish over the loaf before baking for a rich, tangy topping. Alternatively, mix in 1/2 cup of tomato relish into meatloaf, meatballs or hamburger patties before shaping and cooking for a tasty surprise.
Sandwiches: Substitute fresh tomatoes on sandwiches with tomato relish. Spread 1 to 2 tbsp. of tomato relish on your bread or between the slices of cheese or meat to keep the bread from becoming soggy. Peppers in tomato relish will add zip to BLTs and hamburgers. Use tomato relish when fresh tomatoes are out of season or unavailable
Top roasted poultry or pork with a spoonful of tomato relish as you would use applesauce or cranberry relish as an acidic foil for the meat. Skip the gelled cranberry sauce and serve a fresh tomato relish with roast turkey instead.
Pizza: Spread your pizza dough with a thin layer of tomato relish to replace the traditional tomato sauce. Add toppings and bake as usual.
Snacking: Got the munchies: Great with cheese and crackers.
