Green Tomato relish


Most of my tomato plants have got blight, so made soup with the ripe ones and made a delicious relish with the green.
Green Tomato relish recipes  My name is Roz but lots call me Rosie.  Welcome to Rosies Home Kitchen.  I moved from the UK to France in 2005, gave up my business and with my husband, Paul, and two sons converted a small cottage in rural Brittany to our home   Half Acre Farm.  It was here after years of ready meals and take aways in the UK I realised that I could cook. Paul also learned he could grow vegetables and plant fruit trees; we also keep our own poultry for meat and eggs. Shortly after finishing the work on our house we was featured in a magazine called Breton and since then Ive been featured in a few magazines for my food.  My two sons now have their own families but live near by and Im now the proud grandmother of two little boys. Both of my daughter in laws are both great cooks.  My cooking is home cooking, but often with a French twist, my videos are not there to impress but inspire, So many people say that they cant cook, but we all can, you just got to give it a go.

I started slicing the tomatoes, gave up and put all the toms, peppers and chilis through a food processor. Put in a large bowl add the salt mix and leave for a couple of hours, you can leave over night if you wish. Most of the time in cooking this relish is taken in reducing the liquid, the salt will draw the water out and cut cooking time. When ready remove the pulp from the water and put in a clean saucepan.

Add the vinegar, sugar, mustard seeds and I also added a few chili flakes. Heat slowly to dissolve the sugar, then turn up the heat and simmer for an hour, stirring occasionally. You will need to stir more often as it reduces.

Wash jars and lids then place in a pan cover them with water, bring to the boil for 10 minutes, when the relish is cooked remove the jars from the boiling water, place on a cloth-covered board. Fill the jars with the relish, leave 1cm of head space, clean the rims with a paper towel, put on the lids and put them back in the boiling water for a further 10 minutes to process. Remove from the boiling water, place back on the cloth-covered board and leave them alone for 24hrs, do not touch, do not check the lids, leave alone. Label and store.
