i love relish! it goes with so many things and is a lot of fun to make at home. quick tip! identify the seasonal (and therefore readily available and well priced) produce in your green grocers (or be a bit clever and read up on the seasonality of produce in your region) and you'll be on your way to economical and delicious relish making.
2 large red capsicums (or peppers), sliced
2 tomatoes, sliced or diced
6 cloves of garlic (or less if you're a bit scared)
1 tablespoon of sugar
splash of evoo
heat a large saucepan. add a bit of evoo and the garlic. saute until soft and fragrant. add the capsicum strip and cook (covered) for 10 mins. add the tomato and cook (covered) for a further 15 mins or until everything is nice and soft! remove the lid and cook for 2-3 mins just to reduce the relish a little.
sterilise a jar (wash in nice hot soapy water, rinse and place into a hot over to dry) and spoon in the hot relish. leave to cool slightly then lid it! leave to cool a little more before popping into the cupboard for storage or into the fridge
