This Tomato and Capsicum Relish is delicious on its own. But of course it’s perfect with any meat as a side, on sandwiches or even on a cheese platter as an accompaniment.

Ingredients (makes 8 small/medium jars)

  • 1kg Red Tomatoes, peeled, seeded and roughly chopped
  • 1/2 kg Red Tomatoes, peeled and roughly chopped
  • 2 Red Capsicums, finely diced
  • 1.5 cups White Sugar
  • 3 cloves Garlic, peeled and crushed
  • 2 cups Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 2 tsp Ground Cumin
  • 1 tsp All Spice


  1. In a large heavy-based saucepan, bring the tomatoes, capsicum and garlic to the boil slowly. Simmer over medium heat, stirring often to ensure nothing is sticking, for 30 minutes.
  2. Stir in all other ingredients and continue to simmer, stirring occasionally, until thick.
  3. Check if your relish has reached the desired consistency by placing a teaspoon of relish onto a plate to cool. If the relish stays together once fully cooled, it is ready.
  4. Divide into sterilised jars - leaving 1 - 2cm space between the relish and the top of the jar. Place lids on firmly but not too tight. Carefully turn upside down for a few minutes (remember the glass will be very hot).
  5. Turn right way up and allow to cool slowly (do not place in cold water or the fridge as glass may shatter).


It's always great to have a few jars of Tomato and Capsicum Relish in your pantry - a jar makes a lovely gift and the flavour makes a special event out of almost any snack, meal or even a cheese platter.

  • Sounds tasty


  • I’ve just started making relish this year and to my surprise I’m pretty good at it. Will try this one out for sure


  • I adore a good relish! Thank you for this recipe.


  • Mmm would love to try this as an alternative to salsa, dipping corn chips in it or in sandwiches. Yum!


  • I love a good relish. Thanks for the recipe.


  • Sounds great, but I will attempt to make this relish without the tomatoes as they are a no-no in my household.


  • Oh great sounds delicious and a lovely combo thanks!!!


  • Oh yum. Whoever is making all these relishes keep them coming!!


  • I always love a good relish.


  • So much sugar, I like to make it sugar free.


  • I’m curious as to why some tomatoes are de-seeded and others aren’t? And also why do you turn the jars upside down for a short time after filling them? As a regular chutney and jam maker, I’ve never heard of this being done before and am curious as to why?? Looks yummy tho


  • I would love to make some as gifts; great idea, thanks so much.


  • I love relishes and often make a cheese and relish/chutney sandwich for lunch.


  • Wow, I’m a huge fan of relish. Who knew it was so easy to make. I’m definitely printing this off and am going to attempt my own for the first time!


  • Sounds wonderful.
