Sweet Pointed Pepper Relish


I bought these gorgeous red peppers a week or so ago and not sure why. So yesterday I thought that I have to make something from it before they go off. Relish was the only thing I could think about and glad I did. What can be nicer than a Hot Dog topped with homemade relish or a generous spoonful to Steak, Chips and Egg? Yummy, sounds good πŸ˜€

Makes: 250ml/1 Cup



4 large Sweet Pointed Peppers, cut into slivers

2 medium Onions, chopped

30ml Vegetable Oil

15ml Olive Oil infused with Chilly

15ml Balsamic Vinegar

80ml White Wine Vinegar

45ml Sugar


  1. Cut the peppers into slivers and chop the onions.
  2. Add the vegetable oil to a pan and fry the peppers and onions for 5 minutes.
  3. Add the Olive Oil and Balsamic vinegar and cook for another 5 minutes.
  4. Add the white wine vinegar and sugar and cook for another 30 minutes on a low heat, until the peppers and onions are really soft.
  5. Sterilize your jars if you are not using the relish immediately.
  6. Spoon the hot relish into a warm jar and seal immediately.



About The PaperCup Kitchen

Hi there everyone. I am Nelmarie, but please call me Nel. I, like so many people out there enjoy cooking and baking. Food makes me smile and it makes my heart beat faster. The only place where I know I fit just perfectly, is in the kitchen. I have also enrolled in a few cake decorating courses this year and I think I have met my true love....not mentioning my Hubby now :D. It took me 36 years to find out what I want to do with my life and I can now say the answer is rather simple...Bake and then decorating what I've baked. I have started PaperCup in 2011 whilst we were living in Moscow, Russia. Living the life of an Expat can sometimes get very lonely and the blog has not only brought the whole world into my kitchen but I have met so many gorgeous Foodie Friends. I am so happy that I have taken the plunge and started PaperCup. I am not a brilliant writer, I am not a brilliant chef, I am not a brilliant baker BUT I do invite you into my kitchen, take your shoes of, relax, have a bite to eat and let's have a chat. A little more about me: Nelmarie Rennison, married to Christopher for 6 years, together for 12. Two lovely kiddies, Nicholas 3 1/2 and Allegra just over a year. South African, lived in Russia for two years and now loving living in the UK. Diagnosed with MS in 2000 and never felt better :D I am just as grateful for dust blowing in my eyes as I am for Angels sitting on my shoulders. I love my family, my friends, my life and I am grateful for each new morning. Looking forward to get to know you better xx

  1. Funny, I am the same way, I don’t always know why I buy certain items but then I love having to use them in new creative ways! This looks and sounds so delicious! ❀

    • I must say I am very bad with things like that. Always end up with foodies I do not need and the stuff that I had to buy..well…that is still at the shop waiting to be purchased ;D. Very happy with the outcome of this..real tasty. xx
