Winter tomato sauce (ketchup)
« on: May 31, 2011, 02:19:53 pm »

With tomatoes not at their best, and plums out of season I decided to give the EDC tomato ketchup a go using 100% tomato passata and preserved plums (preserved in TM in summer). I also find the EDC ketchup consistency a bit runny so I give it a couple of minutes on varoma for the perfect consistency. Best tomato sauce ever!

INGREDIENTS
400g tomato passata
1 clove garlic
55g sugar
120g preserved plums (or bought plums in syrup)
50g white wine vinegar
1 bay leaf
2 cloves

METHOD
Pop garlic into TM bowl and chop for 3 secs on speed 7. Add passata and plums and mix for 30 secs on speed 7,
Add remaining ingredients and cook for 30 mins @ 100 degrees on speed 1. Then finish it off on Varoma temp for 8 mins speed 1.
Remove bay leaf and cloves and blend for 1 minute on speed 8.

Nearly the same as the EDC version but winter friendly (especially if you can find passata for 79 cents) and the consistency is much more like the stuff that comes out of the squeezy bottles. I put it back in the squeezy bottles and my kids are none the wiser!

Next time I'm going to give it a go with apples instead of plums

What is Passata? is it tinned tomatos.? I was going to make some tomato relish using tinned tomatoes as I am almost out of relish and of course tomatoes are tastless this time of the year.

You will find passata is usually in those 700g bottles dede.  It is just pureed & sieved ripe tomatoes.

Thanks Judydawn. I could of googled it I guess but by asking the question on here it may help others who are not sure either (of course it could be totally possible that I am the only one who doesn't know and I'm just dumb) lol.  :-\
