Fresh bread and Tomato Relish.

Sarah presented me with a brand new bread maker last week and I can't stop using it.  I have had a breakmaker in the past but I think I used it once.  Now the new one can make jam and jellies in it.  Wow have they come up in the world.  I make our bread each night when I come home and the boys love it.

While I was making the bread last night I decided to use up the rest of the tomatoes and make some relish.

Sue's Tomato Relish.
1.1kg ripe tomatoes (roughly chopped)
3 Capsicums  
2 large onions chopped.
400grams sugar
600ml white vinegar
2 cloves of garlic grated
handful of sultana's
1/4 teaspoon chilli powder
1 teaspoon of curry powder

Chargrill the capsicums in the oven at 180 until the skin turns black.  (20-25 min)
When cool enough to touch peel of the skin.
Chop up capsicum.
Combine all ingredients into a saucepan.  
Bring to a boil stirring until sugar is dissolved
simmer for about 1 1/2 hours until it thickeners.
Place in sterilised jars.

Makes 4 medium size jars.
