  • Author: Jess Pryles



1.5 lb tomatoes

1 medium onion

1 tablespoon kosher salt

2 cups sugar

2 teaspoons mustard seed

2 teaspoons curry powder

1/2 teaspoon cayenne powder

1 cup cider vinegar

2 tablespoons flour


  1. Blanch the tomatoes in boiling water then plunge into cold water to remove skins. Chop tomatoes and onions and then place into a bowl with the salt. Cover, and leave for 6-8 hours. Discard the water that accumulates in the bowl.
  2. Place the onions, tomatoes, sugar, mustard, curry, cayenne and vinegar in a saucepan and bring to boil. Reduce heat, and simmer for 60-90 minutes until mixture has thickened and reduced by at least half.
  3. Dilute the flour with a small amount of water to make a paste. Stir out any lumps, then quickly whisk this into the relish to thicken it.
  4. Pour relish into a clean glass jar and store for up to two weeks in the refrigerator.
