  • 2 tablespoons of plain flour
  • vinegar
Method:
  • OVERNIGHT put the chopped tomatoes, onions and the salt & pepper in a sealed container and refrigerate over night. In the morning, just before your ready to cook - drain the mixture.
  • put the drained mixture into a large saucepan
  • cover with vinegar
  • add the sugar
  • simmer for 20 minutes to dissolve the sugar
  • mix all the dry ingredients together in a separate bowl and mix with a little vinegar to make a sloppy mixture
  • stirring the main mixture constantly add the dry/sloppy mixture
