Ernest Hemingway loved this relish and included the makings in the 'Hemingway Burger' recipe found in his files in Cuba by the JFK Library. While difficult to find in stores it can be purchased on Amazon. I find the store-bought version too soft and 'cooked'. My version is crisp and more of a condiment!
