|Amish Paste, Grosse Lisse, Tommy Toes and Yellow Brandywine tomatoes.|
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.
