We had a lovely family dinner out on the weekend at a hamburger place – one of the nicest things about this restaurant, other than the family friendly atmosphere (we all love the paper tablecloths that you can draw on – I usually sketch out quilt designs, Sarah draws cupcakes, while my DH and DS draw engineering diagrams), was the delicious tomato relish they put on their burgers. I have never been a big fan of chutney, mainly because I have only ever had the commercial variety. After some research, I found a great recipe here. I modifed it to halve the sugar content, and added some dried chili flakes for a bit more kick. I also used half verjuice/half vinegar for a softer flavour.
It tastes amazing – I think I will be putting this on my cold meat and salad sandwiches that I take to work from now on.
