    I used to make my relish the old fashioned way but made this today with my homegrown tomatoes ,total success in way less time. Only thing different was I used cornflour instead of flour and apple cider vinegar instead of brown vinegar (only because I didnt have brown). Even the husband who is a Thermo skeptic was impressed Big Smile
