“ Brand: Tesco / Type: Other Spreads „
Don't know about where you stay, but the last few days have been cracking summer type weather. It has been sunny and warm with a bit of spring breeze going through it, so yesterday some friends decided to throw a quick bbq. Never been keen on Relish myself. I think I was put off it when I was younger, as it just tasted sort of Vegetable like, and not for me, but I tried a squirt of this yesterday and have to say I thought it was alright. This comes in a squeezy bottle, so easy enough to apply. It is from Tesco, is 300g and I believe it cost around 80p. The bottle is ok. The plastic is thick enough, but easy enough to squeeze it. It stands on it's end so you can get all the dregs out of it, and there is a label on the front and back of this. I just tried a small bit of this at first, since I wasn't sure if I would like this. It is quite thick, but not too thick. It seems to be made up of a Tomato Puree and bits of Veg which seem to be blended through it. It didn't taste spicy or that, but it was a nice sort of healthy tasting thing. You can taste a slight Vinegar taste in this as well. A nice and pretty cheap way to liven up a burger. I will be buying this for bbq season.
There are many things you could put on a cheeseburger, tomato ketchup, mustard, thousand island dressing or you could use my new found favourite which is Tesco hamburger relish. This comes in a squeezy bottle so it is easy to get out the bottle and there is very little waste when you get to the end as you can squeeze out every last drop. Like most if not all burger relishes this one has a tomato based sauce made mostly from tomato puree, there is gherkin, red pepper and even cauliflower in this also but the taste remains mainly one of tomato. The taste is a very tangy one with just a bit of a nip to it from the peppers, you need just a small squirt on the top of your burger to get a great taste from this but you can do as I do and drown the burger in and although you get a strong relish taste it doesn't disguise the taste of the meat it is served on. This is a relish and not a sauce so it does have bits through it but they are very soft and hardly noticeable and they really do make this a very tasty addition to any burger and at only 85p for a 300g bottle it is a relish i would be only too happy to recommend.
This is wicked relish for your burgers and I deffo recommend you buy a bottle to try because it's only 85p for a 300g bottle and it transforms a boring burger in a bun into something a bit more special. It's a tomato based relish and is mostly made out of tomato puree, it's got bits of cauliflower, gherkin and red pepper in it but don't stress because you can't actually TASTE any of them but they give the relish a nice crunch when you bite into your burger and the flavours must mix somehow with the rest of the ingredients. The relish isn't majorly vinegary tasting like a lot of them are but it's got a nice tangy taste that hits the spot just right and makes the burger taste delish. It's sweet and sour at the same time, the main taste is of the tomatoes but everything else is mixed in so nice that you wouldn't actually pick out the flavour of FRESH tomatoes and it's a kind of mixture of flavours that are just sooooooo yummy. You don't need to put all that much on your burger because if you do go over board you might think the relish is a bit spicey and I reckon it could easily take over the flavour of the burger completely. I've had this a good few times now and it squeezes out of the bottle easy so you can have as much as you like without accidentally putting too much on. I did put too much on a burger once and it was easy to solve, I just put a bit of mayo on with the relish and it took some of the tang away a bit. It does go proper nice with mayo actually and doing that makes it taste nice and moist and the more flavour the better I reckon if I'm having a burger with all the trimmings. Recommended... a delish burger relish that tastes proper authentic and uses good quality ingredients.
