This is the tomato relish that we used to have when we were kids. It was magic then and it's magic today. Mum made it. So did both my grandmothers, and probably half the cooks in Victoria, Australia, but I had never been able to find the recipe - until recently - and I had cooked and tested just about every relish variant imaginable. The version we had when we were young had less "heat" from spices than my version, but the hotter it is the more sensational it tastes, while still keeping the original magic. It looks as if its complicated to make. It's not. It virtually makes itself. If you have one of those small vegetable choppers (rotary-type) that you bought when it impressed you at a home show and have never used since - drag it out for this as the chopping is really the only thing that takes any real effort.
