Lately I've been using my Thermomix to make jams, sweet sauces and homemade butter with success. I love knowing exactly what is going into them and the taste is far superior to store-bought, mass produced products. So this got me thinking...using canned tomatoes + the Thermomix to make relish...I hunted around for recipes, but didn't find anything that looked just right, so melded a few together and adjusted the taste once I'd finished cooking and have come up with a delicious Thermomix tomato relish recipe using canned tomatoes!
Canned tomatoes are mega cheap...for 80c or 90c a can, you can make a few jars of relish for just a few dollars! It is sooo tasty, we've been eating it on ham sandwiches, with crackers and cheese, chips, burgers and homemade sausage rolls. I'm excited to have a quick, cheap and easy recipe to use now and it makes a great gift too. This quantity of relish filled about 4 jars - they were all random sizes, but at a guess I'd say it makes just under 2 liters. You could easily halve the recipe if you didn't want to make as much.
Canned Tomato Relish2 x 400g cans tomatoes
2 large onions, cut into small cubes
1 apple, peeled, cut into small cubes
1 Tbs curry powder
1 Tbs salt
1 dessert spoon mustard
180g white vinegar
80g white sugar
60g brown sugar
1 Tbs cornflour
Place all ingredients except cornflour into Thermomix bowl. Cook on 100 degrees, speed 1 for 30 minutes.
Make a paste with cornflour mixed in a little vinegar. Add to relish and cook on 100 degrees, speed 1 for a further 1 minute.
Pour relish into sterilised jars and seal. (Relish will be runny, but will thicken on cooling).
(NOTE: Because I only make a small quantity of relish at one time, I'm not too pedantic about my jars. To sterilise them, I half-fill them with water and place in the microwave for a couple of minutes, until the water comes to a rapid boil.)
