Relish question
« on: December 21, 2012, 03:53:42 am »
I have made 3 batches of relish yesterday and have another 3 to go to use up the tomatoes.
DH would like a relish with a bit of a bite and thought I would use some chilli paste, my question is how much would I use to make a mild hot relish with 1 kg of tomatoes? Do you think a Tablespoon? More or less

Dede I don't really know, depends on how hot the paste is a tablespoon would kill me.  Do you like it but a teaspoon at a time in until you think it is ok.

Just mix the too-hot version with the not-so-hot version Mandi and you might end up with a just-right version  ;)

I would add half and the get DH to taste it.  Add the rest if he thinks it isn't hot enough.

Phew.
May all dairy items in your fridge be of questionable vintage.
