sour pickle relish???

DH asked if there was such a thing as "sour pickle relish" as opposed to the sweet pickle relish he so dearly loves. And I realized that all the "relishes" I knew about were to some extent sweet, some almost candied. No relish equivalent to a Kosher dill.

So: is there such a thing as sour relish? Not sweet-and-sour, not sweetish, not sourist. Truly sour relish.

Recipes would be welcome.

Thanks, all!

  1. I'm just wondering if you could make a sweet relish and just omit the sugar? It seems to me that the word "relish" kind of automatically implies "sweet". At least, that's what I associate it with. If interested, it might be worthwhile to make a sweet and sour relish recipe and just omit the sugar and see how it turns out.

    1. There's Dill Relish. Right next to sweet on your grocer's shelves.

      1. Yes there is sour relish at the grocer's. Its what my mother used in her potato salad.

        1. This stuff is excellent, you can find it at high end grocery stores, "health" food stores, co-ops, organic places etc. It's in the refrigerated section like Claussen's pickles.
