Bottle of Tomato Sauce

This recipe of mine makes 1 bottle of Tomato Sauce (600ml). I know it is a lot of washing up for one bottle of sauce, but it is worth it!

4 large tomatoes (chopped)
1 small onion (chopped)
2 apples (chopped)
4 cloves (remove when cooked)
Sprinkle of garlic flakes
Sprinkle of All Spice
Sprinkle of nutmeg
black pepper
pinch of salt
1/4 cup of vinegar
1 dessertspoon of brown sugar
2 sachets of tomato paste

Mix all ingredients in saucepan and bring to the boil. Simmer for about 25 to 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Allow to cool. Scoop out tomato skins and cloves.

Blend in blender (when cool) just for a short burst (to keep sauce nice and thick, don't blend for long).

Pour into a small jug and fill a 600ml bottle (sterilize the bottle first by washing, rinsing well and heating in the oven for 10 minutes).

Keep sauce refrigerated. These sauces and relishes should keep about 3 or so weeks in the fridge.
