: Relish ....... why ?!?

24th March 2008, 03:13 AM
OK, was out with some friends this weekend and we stopped for a quick lunch at a public market food court. I got myself a bratwurst with sauerkraut, mustard and a bit of ketchup. Two friends insisted that hot dogs (or variations) must be topped with relish also (they do the red/yellow/green traffic lights condiments thing). I'm like "that is SO for kids !"

So we enter a long philosophical debate that will unlikely ever be resolved . We'd be lucky if we stay as friends ;)

So as far as I'm concerned, (green pickle) relish serves absolutely no purpose in this world whatsoever. Either you add a slice/wedge of pickle to your dog/burger or you simply don't, but puhleeez none of that sweet, vinegary, mustardy slimey crap !

If you knew what went into hot dogs I don't think you'd be eating them anymore. After seeing what happens in slaughterhouses here in America and how hot dogs are made, I don't think I'll be eating very many of them. :o

EEEW to relish...my first intro to Dogs was at he Koshe Deli's and "Dirty Water Dog" stands of NYC....Mustard and Kraut. Then there is Chilli Dogs and Texas Weiners, Cheese Dogs and Corn Dogs. A late night NYC fav being the original Papaya King.

Relish and brown deli mustard.

Only way to go.

No onions, no sauerkraut, no chili, no cheese topping, no catsup.

That's why you buy the good stuff. Applegate Farms makes probably some of the best hot dogs I have ever eaten. They are a little more expensive but it's uncured all natural beef. Make sure you get the Uncured Big Apple Hot Dogs. They are made from boneless pork shoulder and beef chuck and nothing else.

By the way I agree with you Ken, no relish shall ever touch a hot dog. Here in GA we have this place call the Varsity that makes some great slaw dogs. Slaw, chili, mustard, and some kraut. Call it a day and walk out with a stomach full of grease. Oh, those were the days.

Relish is ok on Hot dogs only. And only Dill relish (Sweet relish is gross).

Sausage, on the other hand, should be eaten with a good dark mustard and sauerkraut (with a good beer too). :lol:

Sweet relish is nasty. Dill is the only way to go.

There needs to be more uses for dill relish. And horseradish.

I would take relish over ketchup anyday.


I'm a meat and mustard guy usually, and I like my casings natural. Every once in a while our Wegmans deli will have Blood and tongue sasuage. Its pretty good, but i've yet to make a sandwich out of it.

Guys ... there are more kinds of relish than just "sweet relish".

I for one like onion relish, hot pepper relish, and proper dill pickle relish.
It just depends on my mood.

I can't stand sweet relish either ...

Hotdog + ketchup + mustard + relish = yum yum

hotdog + stick + batter + deep fried + ketchup + mustard = yum yum

True that, I'm Polish so I eat plenty of sausage...none of the cheap American hot dogs though!

Well to sum it up quickly, cows in american slaughterhouses go along an assembly line of death...first shot in head, then limbs with good meat chopped off for steaks and such, then the ribs cracked open and innards taken out. Various parts of the cow are used for different types of meat, but hot dogs are made from a blend of all the leftover meat scraps and organ bits shoved into casings of synthetic collagen (used to be from intestines). Won't go into the gory details but PETA has some undercover videos they took if you want to watch for yourself. :cheesy:

I'll swap your mayonaise for Miracle Whip.
And beans and weiners are a staple dinner around here ... sometimes spiced up with a hot BBQ sauce.

I used to enjoy KD with hot dogs, but cheese, especially processed stuff, doesn't like me any more. :cry:

The Varsity? Come on man, that is the most overrated restaurant in Atlanta. Forget hotdogs. If you want some good brats, you should hit up Vreny's Biergarten in Duluth.

best hotdog is at this place called grey's papaya. they have a recession special of $2 for 2 hotdogs and a weird artificial papaya drink with wax bits floating in it (i prefer the orange drink sans wax). those hotdogs - extra long with a crunch - are best slathered only in their tomato/onion mixture.

i generally won't eat hotdogs elsewhere unless i'm at a baseball game. then i feel obligated to get an $8 dog at yankee stadium and wash it down with an $8 beer.

my favorite of all sausage-type meals is kielbasa chopped-up and pan-fried with sweet peppers and onions with a large side of cheesy egg noodles. kills me with heartburn but worth the pain.

oh have you guys ever been to a phillies' game? (philadelphia baseball team)
when i used to go, back when the vet stadium was still around,the mascot, the phillie phanatic, would ride around the field on an ATV with a small cannon/launcher on the front. he would load it with foil wrapped hotdogs and shoot them hundreds of feet vertically into the stands. many times the foil would unravel midflight, and the bun and the dog would separate and fly in two different directions. people would tackle each other, fighting for either piece, as if they were after the game winning ball. the violence was incredible, even over just the bun. it was worth the price of admission.

(in recent years it appears the phanatic has upgraded to his own hotdog golf cart)

Well I must say I only went there during my school days and anything taste good when you're a broke college student. You cannot deny that when you need something good and greasy it's the place to go. You eat cheap and those slaw dogs are so tasty. Take a Varsity orange to go with it and you probably have enough fat and calories in your system to last you a few days. I see you shop at Whole Foods, I work for Whole Foods out of the Cobb store. That's how I know about those Applegate hot dogs. I'm guessing you shop at the Duluth or Alpharetta stores?

I'm a college student, and I'm not poor,because my parents are paying my tuition, and I am extremely grateful for it. I take a full load course so I don't have to have a job on the side. It would be to much to handle right now. I just get an allowance by doing things around the house,because I still live mom and dad, until my junior year.

Judging from how you mentioned broke college student, I'm guessing you either went to Tech or GSU (GSU for me).

So I see you get the 20% discount. I mainly go the Duluth store since it's the closest, but I've been to the Alpharetta store before. My sister used to be a sign-maker at the Sandy Springs location. I may have to pay you a visit someday. What do you do there btw?

Ketchup, sweet relish, and plane-jane yellow mustard are children's condiments at best...

...that said I still like sweet relish and plane-jane yellow mustard when I'm eating a plane-jane hot dog, which is a children's food at best... luckily men never grow up.

We northern Europeans have quite a love for offals, so lips'n'4ss sausages are quite well loved. My preference for 'dogs is in a finger bun over onions with proper English mustard, (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Colman%27s) not that manky (http://www.allwords.com/word-manky.html) American mustard.

Stoppit, already with the blood sausage ... I'm feeling hungry ... and I'm already full after lunch, damnit!

Joking aside, catsup is actually derived from the Chinese words:
