Tomato Relish Recipe

We have had a great yield of tomatoes this year, they have done really well.  Luckily I was able to have enough extra to make two lots of my fave tomato relish.  This is the recipe that my Grandmother used and we all love it.  It's a very simple recipe with the main star of the show being the tomato of course!
