I love having relish in the fridge. It is great with sausages, eggs, steak, on burgers, with cheese and crackers, I use it to help flavour mince, it is soo versatile and tasty!! But it usually has A LOT of sugar in it, so that got me thinking, I need some sugarless relish .... here it is.
Ingredients: (makes 1 1/2 cups - will work out larger quantity soon)
- 500g tomatoes - blanched peeled and chopped (I used a can of toms when experimenting with this recipe)
- 1 Tbs sea salt
- 2 onions chopped
- 1/2 Tbs curry powder
- 1tsp mustard powder
- 100ml cider vinegar
- 1 finely chopped red chili (optional)
- 1/3 cup finely chopped dates
- 1/4 tsp powdered stevia
- 1 tsp honey or maple syrup (optional if extra sweetness is needed)
Chop onions and place in a bowl with salt - leave overnight.
If using fresh tomatoes - cut slices in skin on top of tomatoes, cover in boiling water and sit for about 5 mins, peel off skins and roughly chop.
Rinse and drain onions.
Mix together curry powder and mustard powder with a little bit of the vinegar to form a paste.
Place onions, tomatoes, curry mixture, chilies, stevia, dates and cider vinegar in a pot, bring to the boil then reduce heat and simmer for about 45mins until reduced. Stir occasionally to prevent burning.
Taste and add honey if needed.
Pour into a hot, sterilised jar, place lid on while still hot (will make it seal).
Store in a cool place until opened then store in fridge.
