Easy Chili Sauce

Recipe by Lennie
READY IN: 1hr 45mins
YIELD: 7 cups




  • Use large tins (28-ounce) of plum tomatoes and do NOT drain.
  • Combine all ingredients in a large heavy pot.
  • Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to a simmer and cook, uncovered, until thick-- about 90 minutes.
  • Tomatoes will break apart as they cook, although you can help this along by pressing them against the side of the pot with a wooden spoon.
  • Stir chili sauce often as it cooks.
  • Pour chili sauce into hot, sterilized jars and seal.
  • Process in a hot water bath if you wish, but I store these jars in the back of my fridge-- they don't take up too much room because they seem to be eaten quickly!
  • Recipe makes seven cups; I always do up 2 pint jars for my family then put the rest in 1-cup size jars to give away.
