to her when I thought "what the heck!? I'll share it with all of you too!"
Here's how to make a very yummy tomato relish:
- 6lb ripe tomatoes cut into large pieces (chunks will soften but not really reduce down in size, so cut to the size that you would like in your relish)
- 2lb onions finely chopped
cover with ½ cup of plain salt and leave overnight (cover as it stinks)
The Next Day:
Drain well, barely cover with white vinegar and bring to the boil
Add 2lb sugar and 12 (yes 12 chillies or as many as you like) OR ½ - ¾ tsp of cayenne pepper
In a separate bowl:
2tbsp Curry powder
2dsp Mustard powder
3tbsp Cornflour with a little COLD water
Add the mixture to the vegetables and boil for ½ hour or until the relish reaches a consistency that you like.
Bottle and seal
(makes about 6 x 1lb jars or there about)
This is recipe is for red tomatoes, it is not the green tomato relish that I posted about the other week. I have made 2 batches of green tomato relish recently. One using this recipe and the other using this recipe... both are so good that I still haven't decided which is yummier!
