Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a saucepan combine onions, tomatoes, garlic, pepper flakes, and celery seeds. Bring to a boil over high heat, stirring constantly. Reduce heat, cover and boil gently until vegetables soften, about 30 minutes.
  2. Working in batches, transfer mixture to a sieve placed over a glass or stainless steel bowl and press with the back of a spoon to extract all liquid and pulp. Discard solids.
  3. Return liquid and pulp to saucepan. Add brown sugar, vinegar, lemon juice, salt, nutmeg, mustard, ginger, and cinnamon. Return to boil over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally. Reduce heat and boil gently, stirring frequently, until mixture is thickened to the consistency of a thin bbq sauce, about 30 minutes.
  4. Prepare canner, jars and lids. Jar the sauce leaving 1/2 in headspace. Remove air bubbles, wipe rim, place lids and bands.
  5. Process 20 minutes.
