Pickle Relish on Induction??
 
Can pickle relish be used on induction??

If so do I need to buy no sugar added relish?

I'm finding mixed answers online so was hoping someone may now for sure.

In my book...sour pickles allowed...sweet pickles aren't.....could you make your own sour pickle relish? I don't eat relish so I can't tell you from personal experience. Ps. I do eat ketchup...it's just one of those things I need to account for when I plan what I am eating!!

I make my own using petite dills, but I don't do sweet. I don't know how it would taste if you added Stevia to it. Just watch the labels. My pickles are 1 carb per 28g so I try not to use much.

Edited to add: I was just searching the ingredients in my pickles (makes me not want to eat them now) and noticed that there is a SF sweet relish made by Mt Olive with Splenda...

Lulu, did you know that Heinz makes a Reduced Sugar catsup? It is 1 carb per T. I think I bought it to make LC meatloaf, but never opened it.

Mt. Olive makes sugar-free sweet pickle relish. Its sweetened with Splenda, 1 carb per Tablespoon. They make Splenda sweetened bread & butter pickles as well.

Thanks ladies!!!

I did find the SF bread and butter --- the store I was at didn't have the mt olive relish but my FIL said he found it at another. So I'll try that later.

I used 1/2 a SF sweet pickle sweetened with Splenda for my deviled eggs --- not quite as good as what relish would be I don't think but I'll look for that for next time.

I don't need much but deviled eggs just ain't deviled eggs wtihout the sweet relish lol Ended up with the pickles at 1 carb for 20 half deviled eggs --- for all of them.

And FYI on that ketchup, I love putting ketchup on my eggs, used that and it's still pretty good :)


I've been using salsa a LOT -- and I'm noticing my weight loss has slowed so I'm cutting it all together the next few days and see if that improves.

Isn't that funny that we all have our own ways of making things that we just have to have. My mother never used anything on hers DEggs except mayo and seasonings with paprika on top. I feel the same way about having chopped up pickles in mine, but I have always used sour. I'll have to try sweet one day, it sounds interesting. I like a little onion occasionally, too. I bet a little sliced bacon would be good, too...

Good to know about the LC ketchup. I had tried it years ago and thought I remembered it tasting pretty good, but they have changed it up some and the packaging is different so I wasn't sure.

lol easily - i like your thinking - anything good just gets better with bacon haha!

Mine are just basic but everywhere I take em people literally fight over them! HA! I use mayo, a splash of mustard, salt and just a bit of sweet pickle relish. I used to add a little sugar to the mix to but just dropped that all together in my low carb verision - I know I could add splenda or something but not really needed and then top with paprika.

You know, if you're talking about 1 tablespoon of relish for a whole recipe of deviled eggs that you will eat over several meals I'm a rebel in that I'd say to just use your regular relish until it runs out, then sure, replace with a lower carb version.

Despite the fact that I've been doing insanely restrictive elimination diets for 2 1/2 months I'm actually quite pragmatic and I am not a rigid follower of small details for the most part - I think things like a tablespoon of relish for a whole recipe is the kind of thing that could be used for fine-tuning down the road, when you've dropped a bunch of weigh and are frustrated that the scale is moving slowly, but seriously if "your" recipe of deviled eggs is one of the things that will get you through those very tough first weeks, then I say go for it...

Now, I'm not saying to play loose with the rules on every item, but please don't let the perfect be the enemy of the good!
