Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Score a small cross in the base of each tomato. Place into 2 large heat proof bowls and cover with boiling water. Let them stand for 3 mintues, then remove with tongs and cool slightly. Peel the skin from the tomatoes.
  2. Cut each tomato in half and scoop out the seeds. Chop the flesh.
  3. Heat the oil in a large stock pot and add the onions. Cook over medium heat for about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until they are soft and golden. Add the garlic and cook for just 1 more minute.
  4. Add the tomatoes and bring to the boil. Cook over medium-low heat for 1 1/2 hours, until thick and pulpy. Stir often to avoid catching on the bottom. Stir in the vinegar and sugar and season to taste. Cool and divide between airtight containers or snap-lock bags, into useful portion sizes. Lable and date, and freeze for up to 2 months.
