Sandwich Essentials: Sweet/Sour Bread Spread

Andy Anderson !


This is a brilliant spread for beef and chicken, and it might even make a good dipping sauce; however, I have not tried it in that capacity, yet.

Easy/Peasy to assemble from common kitchen ingredients and helps to kick up the run-of-the-mill sandwich. And, of course, being homemade, you can always adjust the ingredients to suit your own tastes.

So, you ready… Let’s get into the kitchen.

How to Make Sandwich Essentials: Sweet/Sour Bread Spread


  2. If you are using the ingredients as listed, and you place it in a non-reactive (stainless steel, glass, ceramic) container with a tight-fitting lid, it should easily last a month in the fridge.

    If, however, you use items like homemade mayonnaise, then it will only last 7 – 10 days.

    Remember homemade condiments do not contain preservatives… they taste better… are better for you… but they do not last as long.
  3. I made three batches:
    • One without any relish
    • One with sweet relish
    • One with dill relish

    And, to be honest, I could not tell you which one I liked the best… they all tasted great.
  4. If you are planning to put this sauce into a squeeze bottle, then do not add any relish…

    It will clog up the nozzle when you try to squeeze it out.

    I HATE it when that happens.
  5. The sriracha sauce dictates the heat in this spread; it is also integral in balancing the sweetness of the other ingredients.

    If you want to reduce it, that is fine; however, even if it only a teaspoon, add a little. It makes a big difference.
  6. Gather your ingredients (mise en place).
  7. Add the ingredients to a small bowl, whisk together, and then add to a jar with a tight-fitting lid.
  8. Store in the fridge, until needed.
  10. Use anywhere you would use other sandwich condiments. Enjoy.
  11. Keep the faith, and keep cooking.
