This Tomato and Capsicum Relish is delicious on its own. But of course it’s perfect with any meat as a side, on sandwiches or even on a cheese platter as an accompaniment.

Ingredients (makes 8 small/medium jars)

  • 1kg Red Tomatoes, peeled, seeded and roughly chopped
  • 1/2 kg Red Tomatoes, peeled and roughly chopped
  • 2 Red Capsicums, finely diced
  • 1.5 cups White Sugar
  • 3 cloves Garlic, peeled and crushed
  • 2 cups Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 2 tsp Ground Cumin
  • 1 tsp All Spice


  1. In a large heavy-based saucepan, bring the tomatoes, capsicum and garlic to the boil slowly. Simmer over medium heat, stirring often to ensure nothing is sticking, for 30 minutes.
  2. Stir in all other ingredients and continue to simmer, stirring occasionally, until thick.
  3. Check if your relish has reached the desired consistency by placing a teaspoon of relish onto a plate to cool. If the relish stays together once fully cooled, it is ready.
  4. Divide into sterilised jars - leaving 1 - 2cm space between the relish and the top of the jar. Place lids on firmly but not too tight. Carefully turn upside down for a few minutes (remember the glass will be very hot).
  5. Turn right way up and allow to cool slowly (do not place in cold water or the fridge as glass may shatter).

Notes... It's always great to have a few jars of Tomato and Capsicum Relish in your pantry - a jar makes a lovely gift and the flavour makes a special event out of almost any snack, meal or even a cheese platter.

  • I love relishes and often make a cheese and relish/chutney sandwich for lunch.

  • Yum!! Now for the home made sausage rolls or some juicy steak to put it on!


  • This is something I am going to make! A simple meal like grilled chicken can be taken to the next level with a relish like this. So many other uses for it too! Yum
