Mum's tomato relish
( MAKES 6 cups )
Mum always thickened her relishes with flour. These days cornflour is a better option for those with an allergy to wheat.
- Prick the top of the tomatoes with a sharp fork. Place in a bowl. Cover with boiling water. Stand for 3 minutes then refresh in cold water. Peel.
- Chop the tomatoes and place in a large saucepan. Add the onions, salt, chilli powder, garlic and sugar. Stir well. Add 1½ cups of the vinegar. Bring to the boil. Stir well, then reduce the heat and simmer for 1 hour, stirring occasionally.
- Mix the remaining vinegar, mustard powder, curry powder and cornflour, until smooth. Stir into the tomato mixture and simmer, until thickened.
