You'll relish this zesty condiment Erlene Cornelius sends! "For years, I stirred this up 'by guess and by golly' before finally figuring out the proper measure of ingredients so I could share the recipe," admits this Spring City, Tennessee cook. "It's great to have on hand anytime that you grill hot dogs or smoked sausages."

  • 1/4 cup sweet pickle relish
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon prepared mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon caraway seeds


  1. Combine all ingredients in a saucepan; cook on low heat until heated through. Serve over hot dogs.
