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
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
