This sweet, spiced beetroot recipe is moreish and doesn't have the earthy flavour reminiscent of dirt. It's sweet but not sticky and jam like although if you prefer a nice sticky marmalade texture feel free to increase the sugar to one and a half cups and add some orange zest. I served this with the roasted lamb rack in a side pot where Mr NQN wolfed it down quickly without leaving me any. I had to hide the jars!
This relish recipe is great to serve with grilled meat, sausages, or on hamburgers and sandwiches. Its spicy sweetness is tempered with vinegar, which also serves to intensify the natural flavour of the tomatoes.
This is the best selling, fabulous tasting, world famous Tomato Relish as made by the Boonooroo Brown Paper-bag Ladies This is REALLY like granma used to make. If I buy cooking tomatoes and they are very pale, I add a small tub of tomato paste. You can add garlic, or herbs to this recipe, but I dont find it needs it. I always double this recipe, cause I am constantly being asked for it :) I use good quality brown vinegar, but the my fellow Bag Ladies use the generic stuff.
