NEED TO KNOW

Main ingredient Tomatoes
Type of dish Sauces and dressings
Course Side dish
Cooking time 1 - 2 hours
Serves/makes 1 litre
Special options None

2kg mixed tomatoes
4 small onions, peeled and roughly chopped
8 cloves garlic, peeled and quartered
2 bay leaves
3 small sprigs of rosemary tips
1 cup malt vinegar
2 Tbsp honey or brown sugar
1 Tbsp salt

1. Preheat the oven to 220ºC. Place everything in a large roasting pan and roast for 45 minutes to 1 hour. (It will look odd and liquidy, with browned skins on the uppermost tomatoes.)

2. Stir together well, mushing the tomatoes and bits of garlic as you go. Return to the oven for another 30 minutes.

3. Spoon hot into hot clean jars and seal, or cool and spoon into containers to freeze.
