This Chunky Onion and Tomato Relish is a perfect accompaniment to our signature Boerewors. The rich, caramelized onions and tomatoes complement the savoury goodness of the Boerewors, creating a delightful flavour harmony.


- 2 Tins of Diced Italian Tomatoes (Alternatively, 8 fresh diced tomatoes)

- 2 Onions, roughly chopped

- Salt & Pepper, to taste

- 2 tbsp Mrs Balls Chutney

- 1 tbsp Sugar (for caramelization)

- 2 tbsp Balsamic Vinegar

- 1 tbsp Worcestershire Sauce

- 2 tablespoons Olive Oil


1. Caramelizing the Onions:

- Heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil in a frying pan over medium heat.

- Add the roughly chopped onions and sauté until they become soft and caramelized.

2. Preparing the Relish:

- Once the onions are caramelized, add the diced tomatoes to the pan.

- Sprinkle sugar over the mixture to aid in the caramelization process.

- Pour in the balsamic vinegar and Worcestershire sauce for depth of flavour.

3. Seasoning:

- Season the mixture with salt and pepper according to your taste preferences.

4. Adding Mrs Balls Chutney:

- Stir in 2 tablespoons of Mrs Balls Chutney. Adjust the quantity based on your desired level of sweetness and tanginess.

5. Simmering:

- Allow the mixture to simmer for approximately 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. This helps the flavours meld together and intensify.

6. Adjusting Consistency:

- If you find the relish too thick, you can add a splash of water to achieve your preferred consistency.

7. Cooling and Storing:

- Once the relish reaches the desired consistency, remove it from heat and let it cool.

- Transfer the chunky onion and tomato relish to a jar or airtight container for storage.
