How to Make Hot Dog Relish

Make hot dogs even tastier with a batch of homemade relish.


  • Step 1: Chop the vegetables Chop the onions, peppers, pickle, cucumber, pimentos, and celery by hand or with a food processor, until they're finely minced.
  • Step 2: Pickle it Put all the vegetables in a large bowl and mix in the mustard, ketchup, horseradish, and Worcestershire sauce until everything is evenly coated.
  • TIP: If you like your relish hot, add a teaspoon of red-pepper flakes.
  • Step 3: Keep in fridge Put in a covered container and store in the refrigerator, where it will keep for five days. You'll end up with enough for about 20 hot dogs.
  • FACT: "Gentlemen's Relish" is an anchovy paste created in 1828 by an Englishman named John Osborn.
