Tomato Sauce


  • 2kg tomatoes, peeled & chopped
  • 375g cooking apples, peeled & chopped
  • 1 cup malt vinegar
  • 1.5 cups sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • Pinch cayenne pepper
  1. Place all the ingredients in a heavy saucepan
  2. Bring to the boil, stirring to dissolve sugar
  3. Cover and simmer for 80 minutes
  4. In batches put the sauce in the blender
  5. Simmer the sauce for 20 minutes more
  6. Wash and heat several medium/large jars
  7. Funnel the sauce into the hot jars and screw on the lids tightly
  8. As the sauce cools, the lids should invert

Make this when you have a massive crop of tomatoes. The sauce goes well with meat pie.
