"This relish is a lovely relish to serve with cheese, on sangers, with meat. Whatever takes your fancy. I have cut the sugar down a little in this recipe (from my original recipe) as I found the last batch a little sweet. I have made 2 different batches of this relish and come up with this one recipe, I prefer the brown sugar although you could use white, I also have used malt vinegar but I prefer using the white vinegar. You may like to add some more pepper flakes after tasting, but I don't like this relish too hot. NOTE: The serving size will depend on what size jars you are using. Makes 5 jars"

Step 1

Heat oven to 150°C.

Step 2

Lay the tomatoes cut side up on a sheet of baking paper drizzle with just a little olive oil and sprinkle with the sugar, salt and pepper. Roast tomato's for one hour.

Step 3

Remove the tomato's from the oven and sprinkle the chopped onions over the semi-roasted tomato's and place back in the oven for another hour.

Step 4

When ready remove the tomatoes and allow the tomatoes to cool slightly then slip the skins of the tomato's (they will come off easily) then roughly chop the tomato's.

Step 5

Place the tomato's/onions in a saucepan and add the other ingredients and bring the mix to a light simmer, stirring frequently and stir until the sugar dissolves.

Step 6

Bring to the boil, then reduce the heat to a simmer for 45 minutes or until the relish is thick. The mix will go a little darker and thicker when ready.

Step 7

Taste and add a dash more of red pepper flakes if you like a bit of heat.

Step 8

Spoon into sterilised jars and seal.
