Author Notes: Given the delicate balance of sweet and heat and texture in this recipe, my guess is that no two cooks will make this exactly alike. All depends on how many cloves of garlic, and just how high on the Capsaicin Scoville heat scale you choose to go.
HINT: Add smoke to the flavor by grilling the fruit and peppers first before blending.
Relish: according to your taste with drinks, tortilla chips, guacamole, fish, seafood, chicken or meats. —Vivian Henoch
