Pawpaw (or mango or kiwifruit) & Chili Relish
From: Tim Smith

I looked this recipe up in the old Women's Weekly Preserves Cookbook and adapted it a little:

  • 1/2 tsp black peppercorns
  • 1/2 tsp pimentos
  • 1 1/2 kg Pawpaw or other fruit, peeled & chopped
  • 2 large apples, peeled & choppped
  • 400g peeled, chopped tomaroes (about 4 medium)
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 3 cups white (wine) vinegar
  • 2 tsp sea salt
  • 3-6 bullet chillies chopped
  • 2 tsp grated fresh ginger
Very finely chopped coriander roots from 1 bunch coriander

Tie peppercorns & pimentos into a muslim bag (bouquet garni) and combine with all the other ingredients in a large saucepan.
Stir over the heat without boiling until the sugar has dissolved.
Bring to the boil and simmer uncovered for about 1 1/2 hours or until mixture is thick. Discard muslin bag.
Pour into hot sterilised jars and seal when cold. Makes about 5 cups.
