Tomato Sauce    

Sugar Free and Gluten Free

Makes 750ml

INGREDIENTS

  • 2kg ripe tomatoes
  • 180g Perfect Sweet® xylitol  
  • 250ml white vinegar
  • 4 teaspoons chopped fresh garlic
  • 4 teaspoons salt
  • 4 whole cloves
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper (optional)

METHOD

  1. Cut a shallow cross in the base of each tomato. Place tomatoes in a heatproof bowl and pour boiling water over to cover. Stand 2 minutes then drain. Peel skins from tomatoes. Dice tomatoes and place in a large heavy-based saucepan.
  2. Add xylitol, vinegar, garlic, salt, cloves, bay leaves and cayenne (optional). Bring to the boil. Reduce heat to very low and simmer, uncovered, without stirring, for about 4 hours or until mixture reaches a shiny pulp consistency.
  3. Push hot mixture quickly through a sieve into a large clean bowl or jug. Pour into hot sterilised bottles or jars. Seal immediately. Turn bottles or jars upside-down and stand for 2 minutes to sterilise lids. Then turn right way up to complete cooling.

Keep sauce refrigerated after opening and use within 6 weeks.

RECIPE TIP:

Cook on a very low heat and do not stir while it is cooking. Let the moisture cook out slowly. Use a simmer mat if you do not have electric hot plates so the heat will be distributed evenly. This will also prevent the sauce from burning.
