- Active Time 2h 10m
- Total Time 2h 10m
Makes about 5 quarts
Use this sauce as a marinade for roast chicken, garnish for burgers or as a dip for fresh vegetables or corn chips.
- 30-40 ripe tomatoes
- 5-7 medium onions
- 8 green bell peppers
- 5 tablespoons brown sugar
- 3 tablespoons salt
- 5 cups cider vinegar
- 1 tablespoon each cloves, grated ginger, nutmeg, ground cinnamon
- pinch allspice
In a food processor, chop the tomatoes, onions and peppers to a coarse consistency. Transfer the tomato mixture to a saucepan. Add the brown sugar, salt and vinegar. Cook for 2 hours over low heat, stirring frequently and being careful not to let it burn.
Add the spices and cook for about 2 more hours, stirring frequently.
Remove from heat, and spoon the sauce into clean freezer containers. Seal the containers, label and freeze. Store for up to 6 months, thawing in the refrigerator when required.
PREPARATION TIPS: Nutmeg is best bought whole and grated as you need it; the flavor is infinitely superior to store-bought ground nutmeg. You can either use a special grinder or grate it on a fine grater. Also, there are two varieties of cinnamon available: Cassia cinnamon is more pungent than Ceylon cinnamon and is a dark, reddish brown color.
