Easy Tomato Sauce

Amish Paste, Grosse Lisse, Tommy Toes and Yellow Brandywine tomatoes.
 This tomato sauce is easy peasy and is like a tomato ketchup, not a pasta type of sauce. It's a great way of using small tomatoes that you don't want to skin for pickles etc and a few green/unripe tomatoes don't hurt the taste either.
Easy Tomato Sauce
1.5kg tomatoes, chopped
250 grams onions, chopped
190 grams sugar
1/2 cup vinegar
30 grams salt
1 teaspoon allspice
pinch of cayenne (optional)
Places all ingredients in a saucepan.
Bring to the boil.
Reduce heat to a simmer and allow to cook for about 3 hours. Stirring regularly.
After the 3 hours you can seive the mixture and return the strained sauce to the heat to come to the boil for a few minutes.
I usually just puree it with a stab blender and bring back to the boil.
Pour sauce into warm sterilised bottles and seal immediately.
It is good to use straight away or to store in the pantry.
This amount makes about 2 litres of sauce.

Thank you Tracy, this sauce recipe sounds much easier than the one we made.

I made your Honey Jumble Slice today...YUM! My icing is bright pink though as a couple of drops turned into dash lol! Looks good for Valentine's Day, so that's okay :)
