Saucy Times

Spincop was kind enough to pick up a bunch of tomatoes for me at the markets. Since we already had plenty of tomato sauce in the preserves cupboard, bbq sauce seemed like a good idea. Until I found out that the only bbq sauce recipes online were for shop-bought tomato sauce with added molasses that is. Anyway, here is what I came up with. It smells great and looks right.

BBQ Sauce

1 tbspn olive oil
4 kgs tomatoes, roughly chopped
2 large onions, roughly chopped
3 apples, peeled, cored and chopped
4 cloves garlic
4 tbspn pimento
2 tbspn cloves
4 tspn ground ginger
2 tspn salt
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup golden syrup
1 cup treacle
1.5 cups balsamic vinegar
2 cups apple cider vinegar


Heat the olive oil in a large pan. Saute the onion and garlic. Add the tomatoes, apples, sugar, salt, ginger, syrup and treacle, stirring well. Place the pimento and cloves on a square of muslin and tie into a bag. Place in the tomato mixture. Allow the mix to simmer for one to two hours. Remove from heat and allow to cool. Push sauce through a strainer to remove onion and tomato skins. Return to heat, and simmer until sauce has reduced to the desired thickness. Bottle immediately.
