Green Tomato Pickle
Green Tomato Pickle (adapted from an old School Cookbook - I have added my changes to the recipe in brackets)
6 lbs green tomatoes (approx 2.7 kgs)
1 tablespoon mustard
1 tablespoon curry powder
3/4 lb of treacle (I used 500g of brown sugar)
3 pints vinegar ( 1of a bottle of Ezy Sauce instead)
1 teaspoon cayenne (I used black pepper)
3 lbs onions (approx 1.3 kgs)
2 tablespoons plain flour
2 tablespoons salt
1 teaspoon spice (I used Allspice, also added 2 tsp tumeric)
1 dozen cloves
I made a double batch because there were so many tomatoes. In the second batch I added 10 birdseye chillies to give the pickle a bit of zing.
(Sterilize jars by washing, then rinsing in very hot water, then place in a warm oven until completely dry. )
(1) Wash and slice tomatoes and peel and slice onions (and apples) add salt and let stand for 12 hours
(2) Put them with all other ingredients into a large pan and boil one hour, stirring frequently.
(3) When cold, bottle, cover and label (I did this while the relish was still warm)
This made 12 large jars of pickle.
