1kg tomatoes.

2 tbsp olive oil.

2 onions, finely chopped.

1 1/2 tbsp brown mustard seeds.

1 tbsp curry powder.

1 large red capsicum, seeds and membrane discarded, finely chopped.

1 large green apple, peeled, cored and finely chopped.

1/4 cup brown sugar.

2/3 cup malt vinegar.

Sea salt.


Bring a large saucepan of water to the boil. Cut a cross in the base of the tomatoes and drop into the water for about 60 seconds. Remove and refresh in a bowl of iced water. Drain, peel off the skin, cut the tomatoes in half and squeeze or scrape out the seeds. Chop the flesh roughly.

Heat the oil in a large saucepan and add the onions and mustard seeds. Cook over medium heat until the onion is soft and the mustard seeds start to pop. Add the curry powder, capsicum and apple, stir, then add the tomatoes, sugar and vinegar. Stir again, and gently simmer for 30 minutes (add a little water if it's too dry). Season to taste with salt.
