The Ploughman's Sandwich


I got my hands on some Ballymaloe Country Relish last weekend!

V brought this delicious Irish relish with her when she came to visit Tokyo with her family all the way from her kitchen in Kobe. Yes, that's right, it's homemade!

I actually had to ask V how to use this relish because I've never really tried relish before. She told me it went well in a Ploughman's Sandwich. So naturally, my next question was, what exactly is a Ploughman's Sandwich?

V was nice enough to explain what kind of sandwich it was and then I went home and did what any respectable person would do. I googled it. And I found this really interesting website called All Sandwiches that actually had a recipe for a Ploughman's Sandwich!

I've been making this sandwich to take to work lately. I love it.

  1. Ploughman's Lunch = a delicious British snack that's just as enjoyable as British English. We'll convert you to the Empire, eventually! :D

    I grew up with relish and chutney. I assume we inherited it from our British colonial overlords via India.

    Baie lekker, ne?

    1. Ru, I'm not too sure about becoming English but I swear in a past life I was Irish. I have dreams about Ireland (or what I imagine to be Ireland...ha!). It's the very first place I want to go if I ever make it over to Europe.

      I'm still loving my relish...mmm-mmm-good! I had to look up chutney. Is it kind of Indian with all the spices? Sounds good!

      Baie lekker, indeed! :D

    2. I'm so happy you love relish! :D Well, that's an idea! I'll make chutney and give it to you whenever I see you. ;) Like wine, it improves with time.
