Grape & Nectarine Relish

Grape & Nectarine Relish

I am not sure it is called preserve or relish, but it is either one of them. I get mixed up sometimes!!! I know relish is made from fruits and/or vegetables. Also has a sharp and spicy flavour, balanced by sweetness and tang. Today I have nectarines and grapes at a bargain price, so that’s it the main reason I decided to make.

I like to add some spicy in my chutney or relish, so I choose ginger in stead of the smoked paprika that’s I normally add. The sweetness just right for me, cause I’m not fancy ‘choking’ sweet in my food. And the chia seeds is my last minute decision to add in. I like it a bit ‘starch’ like texture.

This new thing I have to put on my homemade yoghurt, pour on my ‘nice’ cream and even spread on my toasties as well. What’s else? Mmm, let me think…

Grape & Nectarine Relish


  • 4 Nectarines
  • 1 pack (500g) Red grapes without seeds
  • 1/2″ Ginger, minced
  • 1/3 cup Brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp Lemon juice
  • Pinch of sea salt
  • 2 tbsp Chia seeds


  1. Wash all the fruits and dry them. Coarsely chopped the nectarines into chunky size.
  2. Prepare a large size saucepan, combine nectarines, grapes, sugar, ginger and lemon juice. Bring to a boil and reduce heat, let it simmer gently until the grapes begin to break down. It takes about 15 to 20 minutes.
  3. Season with a pinch of sea salt. Stir in the chia seeds and mix to well combined.
  4. Let it cool completely before storing or serving.


  • The sugar content should adjust by your taste.  You can mash up the bigger chunk of nectarine if you like it.
