Recipe's preparation

  1. 500g very ripe tomatoes, quartered1 granny smith apple, cored and quartered, skin on1tsp Salt100g Apple cider vinegar50-100g Honey

    Pinch each of Ground Cloves, cinnamon, allspice and cayenne pepper.  Add more cayenne pepper if you like it hot!


    1. Add tomatoes, apple, vinegar and salt to thermomix bowl. Cook at 100 degrees for 30 mins, speed 1, no MC.


    This step is to preserve the colour of the tomatoes so you have a lovely red sauce,           not a pink one! 2. Either pour over fine sieve and discard seeds and skin, or for a more rustic version, just blend on speed 4 for 10 seconds.

    3. Add honey and spices and cook for further 30 mins, 100 degrees, speed 1, no MC.  It may be quicker or take longer, depending on the consistency you prefer. Cook for longer for a thicker sauce. 

     Makes approximately 500 mls.

     If properly stored in preserve jars, will last a year.  The old wives hint is to wrap the jars in aluminium foil if you are going to store them, it preserves the rich red colour.

    Otherwise, will last at least a month in the fridge.
