Tomato Relish

Well my boyfriend LOVES tomato relish and eats it likes its going out of fashion, so I looked around and found this recipe for the Thermomix.  I have never made relish or any sort of preserves or condiments before (either with the Thermomix or otherwise), so I thought, here goes nothing.

I got a kilo of yummy fresh home grown tomatoes from my mum and the rest was just pantry ingredients.  Quick, easy and delicious.  I have now become a tomato relish convert :-)



330g onion, peeled & quartered

1kg tomatoes, halved

330g sugar

1/2 tbls curry powder

1/2 tbls dry mustard

1 tsp salt

1 tsp mixed spice

dash of vinegar

1 tbls cornflour


1. Place onion into TM bowl and shop for 3 seconds on speed 5.

2. Add remaining ingredients and mix for 5 seconds on speed 5.

3. Cook for 1 hour at 100C on reverse speed 1.

4. Bottle while hot.


This would be a great Christmas pressie idea – perhaps a hamper of goodies for everyone – including tomato relish, chocolate truffles, shortbread, perhaps pickles of some sort and a jam.  Sounds perfect to me.  I will have to trial some recipes throughout the year ready for this Christmas.  I know, I know, its months away, but boy time flies :-)

I hope you enjoy the tomato relish just as much as I do and my boyfriend certainly does :-)
