Ballymaloe Original Tomato Relish $10.95

In the 1930s in Shanagarry (a small village in Ireland’s County Cork), Myrtle Allen developed a bright tomato relish recipe to preserve the fresh tomatoes from her husband’s greenhouse.

That same relish became a staple at her family’s table and, later on, at her restaurant. Allen went on to be the first female chef in Ireland to earn a Michelin star. Now Ballymaloe Original Relish has been Ireland’s top relish for 30 years running.

Not sure how you’d use it?

We test everything we sell. Here’s how we’d use this.


At its simplest, this is a flexible and complex condiment for sandwiches and burgers, but it’s also lovely as an addition to cheese boards, a dip for french fries or even swirled into hummus or yogurt for a creamy dip. Incorporated into recipes, it adds an easy pop of flavor that’s more complex and balanced than tomato paste or store-bought tomato jam. Try it whisked into a dressing for leafy greens, brushed over grilled meats just before they’re cooked as a flavorful glaze, or tossed with grains or into a pasta sauce for extra savory depth. We especially love substituting harissa for this relish in our Harissa Roasted Potatoes, which gives this side dish an umami-rich spin.
