“In 1960 my parents Metodi and Milica emigrated from Macedonia to America in search of a better life for my sisters and me. They brought with them many recipes from their village and our Roasted Mediterranean Pepper Relish is one of my favorites!
I have memories of my grandparents, parents, sisters, and I sitting in our driveway year after year fire-roasting, peeling, seeding, and chopping our homegrown peppers and combining them with our homemade Roma tomato sauce. This week-long process would result in a charred yet sweet and delicious pepper relish that always made each holiday and family gathering so special.
After many years of enjoying this recipe with our family and friends, I decided it was time to share it with the world!
We use high-quality, simple ingredients in order to best emulate the taste of the "Old Country." This means absolutely no preservatives, artificial colors, or ingredients.
Please enjoy it as we have for many years!”
