Judy Egge makes a mean relish. How else to put it? Egge's vegetable relishes are sweet, tangy and spicy in various pitch-perfect combinations--instant classics when paired with deviled eggs, tuna salad or even plain cream cheese.

They make an instant thousand island dressing and crab rolls worthy of any country club. And they may be the best thing for hot dogs since buns.
