  • 6 tomatoes
  • 1 onion
  • 1 red pepper seeded
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp chilli flakes
  • 1 tsp ground ginger
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp ground black pepper
  • 3 oz light muscovado sugar
  • 5 tbsp cider vinegar
  • 1 handful of fresh basil leaves


  • Skewer each of the tomatoes in turn on a metal fork and hold in a gas flame for 1 - 2 minutes, turning until the skin splits and wrinkles. Slip off the skins, then roughly chop the tomatoes.
  • Roughly chop the onion, red pepper and garlic. Heat the oil in a saucepan. Add the onion, red pepper and garlic.
  • Cook gently for 5-8 minutes, until the pepper is softened. Add the chopped tomatoes, cover and cook for 5 minutes, until the tomatoes release their juices.
  • Stir in the cinnamon, chilli flakes, ginger, salt, pepper, sugar and vinegar. Bring gently to the boil, stirring until the sugar dissolves.
  • Simmer, uncovered, for about 20 minutes, or until the mixture is pulpy. Stir in the basil leaves and check the seasoning.
  • Allow the relish to cool completely, then transfer it to a glass jamjar or a plastic container with a tightly fitting lid. Store, covered, in the fridge.
