  • 20 large cherry tomatoes
  • 2 cups boiling water
  • 1 tablespoon liquid smoke
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon paprika use smoked paprika if you have it
  • pinch of salt we used Maldon sea salt
  • pinch black pepper
  1. Score a cross on the bottom of each tomato then place in a saucepan.

  2. Cover in boiling water (just covering) and wait 30 seconds. Using a slotted spoon, pick up a tomato and peel the skin off (it should come away easily). Repeat with all the tomatoes. Turn the heat down.

  3. Add the remaining ingredients and stir, gently squashing the tomatoes to release their juice. Allow to simmer for 20-30 minutes (depending on the amount of water used).

  4. The relish should have reduced so you have a thick spoon-able sauce. Taste test and adjust seasoning as required.

  5. Allow to cool and spoon into a clean sterilised jar.

  6. Enjoy!
