Red pepper relish

1 kg tomatoes
100mls olive oil
2kg red capsicums, seeds removed, thinly sliced
600g white onions, sliced
2 cloves garlic, sliced
50g fresh ginger, peeled, grated
2 small red chillies, seeds removed, sliced
200g dried currants
2 teaspoons ground pimento or allspice
500ml white wine vinegar
400g caster sugar
salt and pepper, to taste

Place tomatoes in a large pan filled with boiling water, simmer for 1 minute or until skin starts to peel away from flesh. Rinse under cold water and drain well. Using a small knife peel skin away from flesh, cut tomatoes in half and remove seeds; discard skin and seeds. Coarsely chop remaining flesh.
Heat oil in a large frying pan over a low heat, add capsicums and onions. Cook covered for 15 minutes or until softened.
Stir in chopped tomatoes, garlic, ginger, chillies, currants, spices. Add vinegar and sugar, bring to boil and then simmer uncovered for 1 hour and fifteen minutes, or until reduced and thick consistency.
Season with salt and pepper.
Spoon hot mixture into 6 x 300ml clean jars.

how about this one ab131? - it's from http://www.foodlovers.co.nz/forum/read. php? 3, 120922, 120937#m
sg-120937 - although its name doesn't indicate it, the recipe does have a high red pepper/capsicum content and I do recall reading that it can also be made very successfully with dried apricots when fresh apricots or peaches are unavailable -
"apricot and chilli relish , 12 large fresh apricots peeled and chopped, can use peaches instead. 2 hot red chilli , 12 red peppers, 1 cup wine vinegar, 1 tsp salt , 2 lemons halved, 5 cups sugar. Process peppers and chilli , seeds and all in blender till med chopped, put apricots into large pan add vinegar, salt, pepper mixture and lemons , boil gently for about 30 mins, remove lemons after squeezing out all the juice and pulp, add sugar and boil again till thick , pour into bottles . "Hope that helps. :-))

i use the tomato relish recipe out of the edmonds cookbook, but swap 1/2 or 2/3rds of the tomatos with peppers, it makes a lovely spicy peppery tomato sauce thats yummy on snags and steak.

Mix flour , turmeric and paprika with a little of the vinegar and set aside for later
Bring to the boil the remaining vinegar, seeds and sugar.
