Nana's Tomato Relish

READY IN: 1hr 10mins
Recipe by Island Gurl

This is a sweet and tangy relish served in New Zealand. It goes great on meats (cold leftovers) or sandwiches or just cheese and crackers. Make this when you have some nice fresh garden tomatoes. A special thank you to Heather for sharing her wonderful recipe.

Wow! What a fantastic relish!! This has a nice balance of sweet and sour with some lovely hints of curry and cayenne - but is not very spicy. Hubby loves it so much it will likely become a regular at our house. Made for ZWT5. Thanks for such a yummy relish recipe. (-:
