Notes

Relish can be stored for several weeks in the refrigerator; it can be used straight away. To peel tomatoes, cut a small cone around the core of the tomato using a small sharp knife and remove it, then cut a small cross in the skin at the base of the tomato. Plunge tomatoes into boiling water about a minute then remove. Cool in a bowl of iced water, then peel away skin, starting from the base
