YR Launches New Relish Range
Summer is getting saucy, so fire up the barbecue and stock up on the sambos, says celebrity chef Marcus O'Laoire, who this week launched a new gourmet range of YR Relishes from the iconic Irish-made YR Sauce brand.
The DJ, chef, party maker and sandwich king of The Sambo Ambo fame unveiled the delights of the delicious new relish range at Dinetown in The Iveagh Market in Dublin.
With three incredible flavours, YR Original Tomato Relish, YR Balsamic Red Onion Relish, and YR Habanero Spicy Relish, awesomesauce doesn't begin to describe the new taste sensation!
YR Sauce is renowned for its sweet blended date recipe and exotic spices that have delighted generations of Irish families, as a tasty condiment and flavoursome cooking ingredient.
The new range of YR Relishes are a sure-fire pantry staple, Marcus O'Laoire says.
"I've been eating YR since I was a kid, and I'm buzzed to use these three great relishes to jazz up my sandwiches, roasts and sauces".
The three delicious new relish flavours will be available in supermarkets and in delis this month, in a handy jar, and great recipes and family-friendly snacks and meal options using them are on the website; https://www.yrsauce.ie.
Packed with the best quality tasty ingredients, the new relishes are made here in Ireland to three healthy original recipes. YR relishes will appeal to the health-conscious consumer and to families, as they are gluten free and vegan and vegetarian friendly. Plus, they can be used within 6 months, once opened, so there's no food waste with this cupboard staple either.
YR is also a proud member of Love Irish Foods, supporting Irish brands and the Irish economy.
YR Sauce worked with leading food consultants to develop its new relish collection, using the best ingredients for a healthier recipe, according to Marketing Manager, Elaine Byrne.
"As an iconic 1837 heritage brand, YR Sauce has evolved with the times and remains a much-loved Irish brand leader, over the generations. This great tasting YR Relish selection continues the tradition, and is a fantastic accompaniment to a tasty burger, sandwich, cheese board or salad, as well as a great store cupboard staple and recipe ingredient."
The three new YR relishes are guaranteed to excite tastebuds. YR Original Tomato Relish has a subtle hint of the date puree taste associated with the original YR Sauce flavour, while YR Balsamic Red Onion Relish is sweet and tangy, and YR Habanero Spicy Relish is an exotic new flavour that is great as a dip with tortilla crisps, to spice up a party or a night in.
