Mrs Mills Tomato Relish

Gemma Cockrell

This lovely relish recipe was given to me by an amazing lady who has been making this her whole life!  It's a fantastic way to use a glut of tomatoes grown in the garden and makes a truly special homemade gift.  Sits perfectly with cheese and crackers


4 lbs. tomatoes, peeled and chopped

4 large onions, peeled and chopped

1 oz. salt

1 lb. brown sugar

5 dried red chillies tied in a muslin bag

Malt vinegar

1 tbsp. curry powder

1 tbsp. dried mustard

2 heaped tbsp. plain flour


Sprinkle the chopped tomatoes and onions with the salt and leave overnight in a saucepan.  When ready to make, drain off the excess liquid and add the brown sugar and red chillies. Cover with malt vinegar and simmer for 2 hours.

Mix the curry powder, dried mustard and plain flour with vinegar to make a paste.  Add to the relish and boil for 5 minutes until the sauce has thickened.

Whilst still hot add to sterilised jars and seal.

Decorate jars with handwritten notes and pretty ribbon and distribute to lucky friends and family.  I promise you, they'll love you for it.
