default Tomato Relish

Post by freebird 16th September 2018, 8:34 pm

1lb tomatoes, skinned
5 medium red peppers
3-4 green chillies (I use red if I haven't any green)
1 medium onion
1 cooking apple, about 1/2lb
3/4 pint red wine vinegar
2 level tsp salt
2 level tsp mild chilli seasoning
8oz brown sugar

1. Roughly chop tomatoes
2. Remove stalks & seeds from peppers and chillies, and slice.
3. Peel and core the apple and slice.
4. Peel and slice the onion.
5. Put peppers, chillies, apple and onion through a mincer, pref a coarse blade, and put into a saucepan.
6. Add remaining ingredients, stir well and bring to a boil.
7. Reduce heat and simmer until reduced and thick, stirring occasionally.
8. Ladle into warmed jars.

It doesn't make a lot - about 5 small jars. Keeping qualities not thoroughly tested, because it's so yummy, we always use it up before it's time to make next year's.

Ooh, thank you Freebird, I'll definitely give that a go. I'm missing my chillies now - used up the last of last year's stores. I'll have to buy some!

Tomato relish very nice. Thank you for the recipe. Need more chilli than I put in, the Serranos I grew are quite mild.

Yes, I made some too. I definitely could have done with more chilli but as I had no crop this year I used what I had left in the freezer (wimps' chillies) and bought a few in the hippy shop but I had no idea how hot they were - I wasn't going to taste a raw bit. The recipe is a keeper so thanks Freebird.

Keeping qualities well tested as I found a jar I didn't realise I had. It had been stored in the fridge, not because I thought it needed to be but because there is usually plenty of empty space in our big, commercial fridge. It possibly tastes better for having been kept.
I've got loads of lovely red peppers this year but tomatoes are well finished. I might use a couple of tins.

Never tried using tinned tomatoes. Always struck me as an odd name, as the tomatoes are hardly the main ingredient.
