- 4 medium peaches, about 1 1/2 pounds, peeled and cut into 1/2-inch-wide slices
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 1/2 cup cider vinegar
- 1/4 teaspoon hot red-pepper flakes
- 1 small red onion, halved lengthwise and sliced crosswise, 1/8-inch thick (1 cup)
- 3/4 teaspoon salt
Step 1: Combine peaches, sugar, vinegar, and hot pepper flakes, and briskly simmer, uncovered, until liquid thickens slightly, 15 to 20 minutes. Stir in onion and salt and simmer for 5 minutes. Relish will continue to thicken as it cools.
Notes: Relish can be made 5 days ahead and chilled, covered. Bring to room temperature before serving.
