Recipe's preparation

  1. Put tomatoes into the steamer basket and sprinkle with the salt.  Leave overnight (or several hours) to drain. 

  2. Put onions and apples into mixing bowl and chop 5 seconds/speed 6.  

  3. Add drained tomatoes and chop for 5 seconds/speed 5.

  4. Add vinegar, sugar, sultanas and rosemary (if using) and mix on reverse for 3 seconds/speed 4.

  5. Remove MC and put steamer basket on lid.  Cook for 30 minutes/100 degrees/Reverse/Speed 1-2.

  6. Mix flour, curry and mustard to a paste in a bowl or shaker with a little water and add to the mixing bowl through the hole in the lid while mixing on Reverse/speed 2.

  7. Cook further ten minutes on Varoma/Reverse/Speed 1-2.

  8. Bottle into warmed sterilised jars and seal immediately.  



I sterilise my jars by boiling them for about 5 minutes in a large boiler, then putting them into a warm oven to dry.  It's optional, but I like to put my filled sealed jars back into the boiler, making sure the water comes at least halfway up the jars, and return to the boil for about 10 minutes.  This is known as a water bath, and will ensure a good vacuum seal.

An easy way to fill your jars is to put your thermomix lid onto the jar and fill through the hole - saves lots of spills.[[wysiwyg_imageupload:861:]]
