    Default Hot Dog Relish

    I was wondering what people thought of when someone says "Hot Dog
    Relish." Whether they think sweet, green relish as in used in Chicago,
    or a yellowy mustard as in sold by some brands as hot dog relish. Or a
    tomatey-relish, as I think I've heard is used by some stands in New
    York.

    Maybe it's a regional thing; but when I've searched for recipes for
    Hot Dog Relish, the recipe variations are all over the map, so I
    reckon there's no standard definition, just whatever kind of relish
    you wanna put on, I suppose.. still, wondered what people thought.

    ====================================
    "Hot Dog Relish" is yellow and comes in jars with a label calling it
    that.

    For relish to go ON hotdogs, I prefer sweet green relish or as some
    folk call it "chow chow". (Of course OTHER folks say Chow Chow is
    finely chopped pickled mixed vegetables including cucumbers, peppers,
    cabbage . . . you know, the stuff Chicago folks call Giardinera - hot
    or mild, not sweet.)

    That red, tomatoey stuff is Hamburger Relish.

    Pickalilli is something all together different!

    Here in CA, 'hot dog relish' is essentially a mix of pickle relish and
    yellow mustard.

    In various parts of the country I've had green "hot dog relish" made
    from pickled minced cucumbers or peppers, and a more clear version from
    sweetened, pickled onions with a few small red pepper chunks. All have
    been very tasty.

    The stuff I made last week had onion, peppers (sweet bell), a clove of
    garlic, some bread and butter pickles, a little cinnamon, a little
    clove, a splash of vinegar simmered briefly in some tomato sauce (want
    to guess if it was homemade from scratch?) It is very good. (The
    cinnamon and clove are typically found in chili sauce recipes‹*sort* of
    what I was aiming for, but a quick cook version.)

    George Leppla,

    Geez... when the Ingredients list give HFCS top billing, there's something
    very wrong with that product.

    I use Vlassic sweet relish (cucumber based, no HFCS).

    I prefer using MY desired mustard. I recently switched from French's yellow
    to Guldens spicy brown mustard for hot dogs and have been happy with the
    change.

    Best,

    Andy

    I make my own, in fact I'm making some tonight for grilled hot dogs and
    sausages. I very finely dice onion, add sweet pickle relish, a small amount
    of dried dill weed, then moisten the mixture well with yellow mustard.

    I really enjoyed the Heinz hot chili sauce , it came in small bottles kinda
    like a small ketchup bottle. We can't get it here anymore, I'm guessing I may
    find it in fargo or GF if I look hard. It was wonderful on hotdogs and
    hamburgers.

    I see it available online but would bet it's not at the ACME but since I've
    had mustard "tunnel vision" for so long, I'll browse the mustard shelves a
    little closer next time.

    I'd try it as a standalone condiment on a dog. Might be too hot to combine
    with a mild relish. Or not.

    Stu
    Sometimes you can find Heinz "English" stuff in the A&A store next to
    McDonald's on Main at 9th Streets or Hornbachers - especially Osgood.
    The English stuff has some products not sold or discontinued in the US
    - Salad Cream, Baked Beans etc.
    Where are you anyway?

    Thanks everyone. I guess that kinda confirms that I thought. That the
    definition of Hot Dog Relish seems to depend a lil on where you are, a
    lil on what you like and a lil on what you're used to seeing relish
    makers label their jars.
