Tomato Sauce

This is the BEST sauce, it's chunky and thick and full of flavour. At the tail end of the summer when the tomatoes are ripe and in abundance this is an amazing way to use some of them up, especially if your house is anything like ours and you use a lot of sauce! At my fathers house, there is usually a cooked breakfast on offer and this is amazing with his home-killed bacon- yum yum!

  • 6 lb tomatoes
  • 1 ½ lb light brown sugar
  • 1 lb onions
  • 1 Tblsp allspice
  • 4 Tblsp salt
  • 1 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1 Tblsp cloves
  • 1 tsp ground ginger
  • 1 tsp peppercorns
  • 5 cups vinegar
  • 1 ½ lb apples
Chop tomatoes, apples and onion roughly. Put spices in muslin and boil all the ingredients together for an hour. Put through a sieve when cold and bottle.

  • This is a great condiment but it can also be a really good pizza or pasta sauce too.
