Tomato, Onion and Pear Relish


Mmmm relish! I’ve never made relish before, but since we’re having a BBQ this Saturday and we don’t have any ketchup…I thought I’d try my hand at making relish with whatever I had in my pantry using the Thermomix.


  • 400g tinned tomatoes, drained (use fresh ones if you have any)
  • 1 pear, cored and diced
  • 1 onion, peeled and halved
  • 2 garlic, peeled
  • 1 teaspoon of dried chilli flakes
  • ½ teaspoon of allspice, ground
  • 2 tablespoons  sugar
  • 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • A small handful of sultanas
  • A pinch of salt
  • 20g cooking oil


  1. Chop the garlic and in the TM bowl for 3 seconds Speed 7
  2. Scrape down the sides, add oil, chilli flakes and allspice and saute for 2 minutes 30 seconds, 100 degrees, Speed 1
  3. Add remaining ingredients, set TM to 25-30 minutes, 100 degrees, Speed 1. Replace MC with TM Steaming Basket to prevent splattering.
  4. Enjoy it with crackers, bread, meat, toasties, burgers etc!

A few days after I made this, I was at a fruit shop and was shocked that they sell jars of “homemade relish” for $11 each! This one is definitely better for your health and wallet!
