Aussie Style Thermomix Tomato Sauce (Ketchup)

Last week I made the Tomato Sauce in the Thermomix EDC, but something wasn't quite right with the sauce.  I couldn't put my finger on it.

I reverted to the old trusted family recipe and adapted the quantities (original recipe made about 3 litres!)

I like this recipe as it has the right balance of spices and takes me back to my childhood.

This version is very much your typical white bread type tomato sauce with no frills. Kids tend to love having it on everything and anything.

Aussie Style Thermomix Tomato Sauce (Ketchup)


Aussie Style Thermomix Tomato Sauce (Ketchup)
500g very ripe tomatoes, quartered
1 granny smith apple, cored and quartered, skin on
1tsp Salt
100g White Wine Vinegar (or plain white vinegar)
100g White Sugar (or caster sugar)
Pinch each of Ground Cloves, cinnamon, allspice and cayenne pepper.  Add more cayenne pepper if you like it hot!

1. Add tomatoes, apple, vinegar and salt to thermomix bowl. Cook at 100 degrees for 30 mins, speed 1, no MC.


This step is to preserve the colour of the tomatoes so you have a lovely red sauce,           not a pink one!

2. Either pour over fine sieve and discard seeds and skin, or for a more rustic version, just blend on speed 4 for 10 seconds.

3. Add sugar and spices and cook for further 30 mins, 100 degrees, speed 1, no MC.  It may be quicker or take longer, depending on the consistency you prefer. Cook for longer for a thicker sauce. 



Makes approximately 500 mls.



If properly stored in preserve jars, will last a year.  The old wives hint is to wrap the jars in aluminium foil if you are going to store them, it preserves the rich red colour.


Otherwise, will last at least a month in the fridge.
