Drain off liquid. Rinse off brine.
Mix ½ cup vinegar with the sugar
Mix ½ cup vinegar with the dry ingredients
Microwave vinegar and sugar until sugar dissolved in a 2L jug. Add remaining ingredients and microwave on HIGH until boiling.
Microwave on HIGH 5 minutes, stir, then HIGH another 5 min.
Bottle as usual (I use pop tops so they seal)

3 kg tomatoes
9 medium onions
2 tbsps salt
750g sugar
750ml malt vinegar
1 Tbsp mustard
1 Tbsp curry powder

I freeze the tomatoes first, then squeeze out excess water.
Chop the lot in a blender and then throw it all in a pot except the sugar.
Cook for a while - to reduce a bit.
Then add the sugar and cook again for another 20 mins or so.

If it's still a bit runny, use cornflour to thicken a bit.
I like simple.
You can adapt for microwave, same process, less cooking time.
Put into sterile jars.
