READY IN: 6hrs
Recipe by Canadian Jane

This is one of my grandmother's recipes which has been passed on. Delicious accompaniment for baked or grilled meat or as a base for a barbecue sauce.

My mother in law use to make this with 1 variation, substitute malt vinegar. Great on eggs, potatoes & my favourite breakfast sausage. Now every tomatoe season I make a 10 lb batch to keep the rest o the family supplied. The bonus is how yummy the house smells when making it.
