"Claxton Choice" Relish and Steak Sauce

Our "Claxton Choice" Vidalia Onion Relish and Steak Sauce are legendary when it comes to true Southern goodness. Flavored with Georgia's own famous Vidalia onions, our steak sauce and relish are a great way to add a mouth-watering dose of Southern flavor to your backyard cookout.

You may have noticed that we here at Claxton Fruit Cake have a soft spot for produce from Georgia, and nothing is quite as Georgian as Vidalia onions. In fact, Vidalia onions have been the official state vegetable of Georgia since 1990. Vidalia onions have a long history within Georgia and were the first sweet onions to be promoted and distributed nationally. Vidalia onions were a bit of a wonderful accident when a Georgia farmer in 1931 named Mose Coleman found that the onions he planted were not hot, as he assumed they would be, but unusually sweet. So sweet in fact, that you can find many examples of people eating Vidalia onions raw, just don't ask for a kiss after!

The reason Farmer Coleman didn't get the flavor he was expecting was because of the sulfur content of the soil he was growing in. In Vidalia, Georgia and the surrounding areas, the soil has very little sulfur content, which allowed the onions to ripen into very sweet onions, as opposed to the hot, pungent onions he was expecting.

Since then, the Vidalia onion has continued to be a staple of Georgia foods and flavors that we are only too happy to take advantage of.

Choose between our Sweet Vidalia Onion Relish, which is perfect for burgers and hot dogs with its savory tang of sweet, preserved onions, or our Vidalia Onion Steak Sauce, a great addition to any smoked or barbecued meat and wonderful slathered on rib racks.
