This Rosy Radish Relish is the perfect combination of sweet and spicy. Perfect for adding to all of your favorite summer foods!
Relish is great on so many things and the thought of summer barbecues conjures up delicious bratwurst topped high with relish galore.
This Rosy Radish Relish is great on so many things. It’s also a good way to use up any kind of radish you may have growing in your garden. The beautiful pink color will have everyone talking at the family reunion (or the dinner table!)
Around here, radishes come and go rather quickly. I’m either swimming in radishes or the smaller kids have devoured them all. (They seem to think they are “mini apples”… so we’ll keep that thought for now!)
After giving the radishes a good scrub in the sink, I’ll either use them for Sweet and Spicy Pickled Radishes or… this beautiful Rosy Radish Relish.
If I had to choose one, I’m not sure I could ~ the Pickled Radishes are great on tacos or eaten straight from the jar. This Rosy Radish relish though… it’s incredibly addictive. Even if you aren’t a radish lover, this relish transforms them into the most amazing topping for brats and steak straight from the grill.
I’ve also eaten it on sourdough crackers (yum!) and gifted jars to neighbors in hopes they will love it just as much as I do.
Rosy Radish Relish
This rosy radish relish is brings together some of the most beautiful garden favorites with vinegar, sugar and seasonings. The rosy red color of the radishes bleeds through this relish creating a relish that’s not only good to eat but gorgeous to look at.
Give your radishes a good wash/scrub, then trim the ends before putting them in the food processor with the jalapeños and quartered onion.
Finely chop (don’t over-do it!) and then dump into a stockpot along with the sugar, salt, mustard seed and vinegar. Bring to a boil cook for 10 minutes before ladling into hot jars. Wipe the rims and apply the lids and bands.
Process in a water bath canner for 20 minutes – or, opt to refrigerate if you plan on eating quickly. With 5 kids that devour this Rosy Radish Relish, my jars only last a week (two at most!)

Going to try pickled radishes. Do you have a pickled baby carrot recipe ?
I made this recipe today and it is delicious!
It is so addictive! I love this relish so much!
Halved the recipe and did not have mustard seed but used 3tsp of dry ground mustard for 1TBS mustard seed. Excellent recipe! And so pretty:)
It is one of my favorite Radish recipes by far!
What do you eat this with? Is it a condiment or can it be put on a cracker?
It is absolutely delicious on crackers! It’s very very addictive!
I don’t like radishes and I liked this! We ended up with more than my hubby could eat and I didn’t want to waste them. I didn’t actually “can” them, I put it in heated jars for the fridge when it cools. How long will it last in the fridge? It says several months? I’d like to bring some to my husband’s Grandma. 🙂 Thank you!
You know, I love this relish too. I’m not too fond of radishes, but the relish was so addictive. I didn’t can mine because we consumed it so quickly… but in the fridge it should last for quite a while. Please share with your husband’s grandma. It is one of my favorite recipes to make for potlucks because nobody would ever think that radishes could possibly be a great relish – and it always gets gobbled up!

We made your radish relish today and it is very good. We can’t eat our radish’s fast enough so this recipe was great to find. Thanks for sharing your recipe with us 👍
You are welcome. It is one of my favorite ways to use radishes. The relish is so addictive, and it’s something even my kids love (which is definitely gratifying as a parent!). Have a blessed Memorial Day weekend, Paul.
