  • 1 can of chopped tomatoes (organic when possible, make sure there is no added sugar if you buy from the supermarket)

  • 1 garlic clove
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon (cassia type)
  • 1 teaspoon ground allspice
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
  • a good grind of sea salt and black pepper to taste

*can add a splash of wine if you desire (and the kiddies don’t mind :)
*a tspn of cayenne pepper is great, not too hot just a little kick (and metabolism booster).

How its done~

  • Bring all the ingredients to the boil, reduce the heat and then simmer for about an hour, stirring regularly.
  • Once the sauce has reduced by about half and is quite thick, blend with a bamix or in the blender, if it is still runny return to heat for a little longer.
  • Store in a glass, sterilised jar in the fridge or freeze. Also use as the base in the BBQ sauce.

  • 250ml of the tomato sauce
  • 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon of smoked paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/3 cup molasses

*Stir through and blend if needed, store in glass jar in fridge for up to one month
