This is a gorgeous relish to go with most meats and fabulous in sandwiches with cheese, great to serve as a relish with cheese and antipasto platter.

Just made this and it's FAB, I've made some for all the family using my left over tomatoes from the greenhouse and my own apples. It's really delicious. Great recipe

I wondered having had vinegar and turmeric up my nose...but I don't wonder anymore. This is WONDERFUL!I took the fruits and vegies out with a flat wire gravy wisk, added 1 tablespoon flour mixed with 1/4 cup water back to the "broth," and let it go for about 10 minutes. (We like things thick.) The taste of this stuff is fabulous, my husband said so, daughter came out and ate some, and there's your answer for 5 stars; she so picky!! Then after awhile I tasted it and YES!!! I'll be feeling really good about giving this in holiday gift baskets. I would give this 10 stars if I could! And it looks lovely, too. NOTE: I processed these 1/2 pint jars for 10 minutes in a water bath.

I chose this recipe for the Oz/NZ Regional tour. Easy to prepare and delicious served alongside the herbed roast I cooked. Thanks for sharing!
