I know it sounds weird with the pepper in it but believe me it is fabulous! I got this recipe from my brother in law who runs Texas Restaurant Association in Austin, TX. Good served with meats like pork, turkey & chicken. Great to spread on sandwiches! Great as an appetizer served over the infamous cream cheese block with crackers such as wheat thins or sociables. You let it marinade overnight or 2 nights to meld. EVERYTHING MUST BE FRESH! Keeps forever in the fridge. ENJOY!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Regular powdery pepper makes it really hot and too peppery.
  2. **Do not attempt to crack or grind the pepper yourself**.
  3. Combine all of the above in a food processor and pulse until it is the consistency of chunky salsa (probably will have to be done in 2 batches).
  4. Blend together in a bowl, cover and refrigerate overnight or for 2 nights.
  5. If you serve too soon it will be way too peppery.
  6. Serve chilled.

Incredible. Definitely the most unusual relish I've made. Next time I will cut back on the black pepper, maybe by half, so that the other flavors come through a little more.

The best I could bring myself to do regarding the 3 jalapenos ingredient was to substitute one poblano pepper for them! And, I also cut the cracked black pepper back to less than 1/8 of a cup, & still I had A GREAT TASTING RELISH! It's a keeper of a recipe, & maybe one of these days I'll make it as written & let others tell me how great the intended version is! [Tagged, made & reviewed in Zaar Chef Alphabet Soup Game]
