Definitely a family favourite. I half the sugar quantity because hubby is diabetic but still tastes delicious.

Hi this is my second batch of relish my husband prefers it to the supermarket and so do my family and friends. I put a teaspoon of chilli powder in as hubby wanted a bit more heat and it is very nice. Thank you.

I ran out of relish for hubby while out vege shopping got a big box of tomatoes for 1dollar so looked up this recipe. Hubby loves it so no more supermarket relish.Thank you Chelsea.

I love this recipe and so do my friends enjoy eating it. It is easy to make and when tomatoes are expensive and tinned tomatoes on special I can still have some thing to make.

I have used this recipe many times...I have given jars away to friends and family who just love it and ask for more. The flavour goes with everything I have put it with. Our "go to" favourite!

What a great wee recipe if you need to whip up some relish in a hurry. I used tinned tomatoes and they worked just as well as fresh ones.

I bought 4 tins of chopped tomatoes from the Supermarket @.80cents each. It made 6 jars of relish. I think it is a awesome recipe for winter relish when tomatoes are so expensive. My husband almost had a jar to himself .

Absolutely delicious. Was beautiful with my chicken, bacon & spinach quiche. Very sweet but perfect with savoury. I used chopped tinned tomatoes and it worked perfectly. If you want to feel like you're eating at a posh cafe then this is the relish for you!

me and my grandkids make this relish on the daily, the kids just love it, great recipe. :)

Delicious! Have made it for the family for Christmas, I did however use less sugar but it’s still sweet.

Excellent!!!! Quick and easy to make and very nice! And I've never thought about using tinned tomatoes! Have printed and shared around the office.

Does it thicken more, when cooled, tastes very sweet at the moment, and strong curry flavour! Perhaps I'm being impatient.
CHELSEA: Hi there, it only thickens a little on cooling and the flavours should settle down after cooling too.

Just made a batch of the tomato relish. Was delicious.

Delicious easy to make

A great recipe! I use wholegrain mustard and only half the amount of curry powder. Add some capsicum and a chilli. Mmm delish

This relish is delish! Dead easy to make, i do leave mine to cook a bit longer though.

With more added spices best chutney ever!

Im forever non stopping making these. My husband loves them... always asking for more.
