Easy Tomato Sauce

    1 hour 40 minutes

    This is a great homemade tomato sauce that uses up any surplus tomatoes you may have growing. I love the extra flavour it has over the store bought versions.

    really easy to make. It has a nice "kick" to it so far. Very bitey and would be great with steak. I'm going to let it age a few days before I try it to see how the flavours develop.  -  19 Feb 2011


    I fried off the onions and then added it to the mix.good sauce went down well with some ribs  -  20 Nov 2015
