Making the Onion Relish

Begin by washing your peppers and cutting them in half to remove the seeds and stems. Chop the peppers into little pieces and set aside. Then peel the outer layers off of your sweet onions and slice the onions into very thin slices. Set aside.

Start cooking the relish by pouring the water into the bottom of your sauce pan and turning the heat on medium. Then add the red peppers and sweet onion slices. Stir until the water comes to a boil and cook until the peppers and onions are soft.

Next add the tomato paste, raisins, white wine vinegar, brown sugar, Worcestershire sauce, soy sauce and sea salt. Stir constantly until the mixture comes to a boil. Continue to stir until it begins to thicken and most of the water evaporates. To help speed up the process you can turn your burner up to medium-high.

Remove from the burner and put into a glass serving dish. Refrigerate for at least three hours before serving or until fully chilled. When you take the meatloaf out of the oven let it rest a few minutes then serve a hot slice on each plate with the mashed potatoes. Have a nice dish of the relish out with a spoon for serving and putting it on the meatloaf.
