We had a very good year with tomatoes in our garden, some are still on the plants but I have harvested most now for something to do. First I made a chutney style sauce which you can find over on my facebook robyn joynt- soul foodie and the next one up which I bottled today was a Mixed Tomato Relish. This relish has cumin and cinnamon added and would go extremely well with any bbq meat or roast! Even as a topper for nacho’s or on the side of a quesadilla.

1 kg mixed tomatoes, cherry/large/medium/yellow or plain
400 gm brown onion, thinly sliced
3 apples, small dice
200 gm sultana

1 tbsp cumin
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp ginger
600 ml malt vinegar
1 3/4 cup raw or brown sugar
1.Combine all ingredients in heavy based pot, stir well. Turn onto a high heat to create a boil and drop to simmer for 1-2 hours. Stir occasionally, the mixture should be reduced and thicken slightly, turn off.
2. Sterilize clean glass jars in 110 degree oven for 10 minutes and boil the lids for 5 minutes, dry.
3. Fill jars/bottles while they and the chutney are both hot screw on lid tightly allow to cool.
