something nice to go on your dog roll
Makes: 1.8kg (4lb)
2.7kg (6lb) Ripe Tomatoes
450g (1lb) Onions
350g (12oz) Sugar
300ml (½ pint) Malt Vinegar
25g (1oz) Salt
2tsp dry basil or 1tsp of fresh basil
2 tsp Paprika
¼ tsp Cayenne Pepper (more if you like it spicey)

Wash and chop the tomatoes, peel and chop the onions.
Place the tomatoes and onions into a heavy bottomed saucepan, cook gently to release the tomato juices, simmer for 20 - 30 minutes until tender.
Add the salt, paprika, cayenne basil and half of the vinegar, cook gently for 45 minutes or until it begins to thicken.
Add the sugar and remaining vinegar, stirring until fully dissolved.
Continue simmering, until the mixture becomes thick, stirring occasionally.
Leave for 3 - 5 weeks in fridge to allow the flavour to mature
i lasted for two weeks before i tryed it but at 3 weeks it tasted a lot better so try and wait the time
