Red Pepper Relish Recipe

Red Pepper Relish Recipe
Entertaining during the holidays is fun, and most of us want our food to look fancy and beautiful. It;s rare, though, that many of us have time to fuss over food since we have so many other things to do. Red Pepper Relish is easy to make, can be made a month or so ahead, and is sparkly and festive. The relish can be served with meats and poultry, on sandwich trays, with a variety of cheeses, or over cream cheese with crackers.

This cheese tray is red and green - perfect for the holidays; it's also delicious, but it takes very little hands-on time. This appetizer is simple - just cheese and jelly or relish - but simple is often the best, and almost everyone will love it. Serve it on a festive holiday tray with your favorite crackers.

Three small brie cheese rounds form ornaments; red pepper relish makes them shiny red, and jalapeno jelly (available at most grocery stores if you don't make your own) makes them shiny green. I like to put the brie ornaments on a tray lined with pine boughs, then spoon the toppings over the brie. Gold ribbon finishes the garnish and makes them look like Christmas tree ornaments (See Photo).
