What to do with your extra tomatoes? Drying is one option.

Added bonus: Horseradish helps your digestion in a particular way. Excuse this being said in the middle of a recipe, but it loosens up phlegm and mucus for easier elimination. It’s a diuretic and anti-inflammatory as well. Now on to the nicer aspects of this delicious recipe.


  • 1 quart-size jar of fresh tomatoes, roughly chopped and packed (about 4 or 5 big tomatoes)
  • 3 garlic cloves, peeled and chopped
  • 2 – 3 Tbsp. grated fresh horseradish
  • ½ tsp. sea salt (or to taste)
  • ½ tsp. ground turmeric (optional).

Place cut tomatoes, garlic, horseradish, and salt in a food processor or high power blender. Pulse until all the tomatoes are broken down into small pieces, but still not fully blended. You can now add turmeric as an added health-related bonus. Transfer the relish into a glass container with a firm-sealing lid. Refrigerate until used up. Makes a great side dish on its own, or use in raw recipes.
