  • Summary

    I do think homemade passata worth the effort end season when tomatoes are cheap. Fennel is a natural ally flavour. Makes around 800ml sauce Quantities are approximate, so feel free to adjust. Just cook the sauce down to your desired consistency – thinner for a passata, ideal for pizza bases and adding to stews, and thicker for a ketchup sauce. You will need some glass jam jars or preserving jars with seals, sterilised. Do this by washing in hot soapy water, rinsing thoroughly and placing on an oven shelf, upright, at 120 degrees centigrade for around 20 minutes. Switch off oven, leave jars inside til required. Remove carefully and place on a wooden board while filling.

    Ingredients

    • 3kg fresh tomatoes (ideally plum)
    • 400gm red onions
    • 4 plump garlic cloves
    • 3 red or orange bell peppers (or one large red pepper)
    • 3 tbsps light muscovado sugar
    • 3 tsp salt
    • freshly-milled black pepper
    • 1 level tbsp ground mace
    • 1 level tbsp crushed fennel seeds
    • 200ml red wine vinegar (use other vinegars to replace both the red and balsamic if you like)
    • 50ml balsamic vinegar
