    Beautiful recipe. I also chopped the sage on a higher speed. Probably just a typo, no biggie. For a chunkier relish I cubed my onions. Thanks for sharing.

    Really loved this thank you so much for posting!

    I found I needed to turn up the speed to chop up the sage as #1 just seemed to blow them around the bowl.

    I got one decent sized jar out of this, and very tasty it is!!
