Pork Pie Homemade Tomato Sauce Recipe
Serves: 10, Prepare in: , Cook in:
We've got the cooking bug over at Vale of Mowbray. Winter nights in during the colder weather is encouraging us to cook more since we've got the time and actually do really enjoy cooking. Creating food for the whole family to enjoy brings us joy - as huge foodies, sharing the joy of our cooking is always something we love to do.
In particular, Sunday cooking has become a fun past time - with the snow that's expected, we can't help that we want to hibernate! We're enjoying cooking accompaniments for our delicious pork pies which will last and that we can bottle and pop in the fridge to enjoy over the following week or two.
- 2 Onions, diced
- 125g celery, chopped
- 2 cloves of garlic
- 3tbsp of olive oil
- 1kg of tomoatoes, chopped
- 2 tbsp of tomato puree
- 100ml white wine vinegar
- 100g golden caster sugar
- 1/4 tsp Tabasco sauce
- 1tsp celery salt
- 1/4 tsp ground black pepper
- 1/2 tsp allspice
- 1/2 tsp ground coriander
- Cinnamon stick
- First, chop your onion and celery – they can just be quite roughly chopped but in mid size chunks
- Place the two into a food processor or NutriBullet and whizz until they’re finely chopped
- Next you need to put them in a frying pan which has been heated up with oil in it. Keep stirring but soften them over a very low heat for around 5 minutes – don’t turn the heat up, you want to soften them more than brown them
- Add the garlic and keep moving around with a spatula for a further five minutes
- Tip in all the spices then stir in over the heat for another minute
- Pour in the remaining ingredients and then simmer (whilst stirring occasionally) for around an hour until the tomatoes are soft and then remove the cinnamon stick
- Pour the mixture into a blender and whizz until it until it’s the consistency you like. We like it slightly more chunky as you can see in our photos but if you prefer it to be smooth then just keep on blending!
- As it cools, the sauce will thicken so bear that in mind when thinking of how much you do want to blend it.
- Put in airtight, sterilised containers and you can keep this in the fridge for a maximum of 3 months.
There you have it – an easy homemade tomato sauce recipe from scratch! We love this ketchup with a pork pie; serve in a ramekin with our mini pork pies for an easy dinner. You could serve with fries or a side salad for a more filling dinner.
Using fresh ingredients to make wonderful flavours to compliment our pies is something we’re really passionate about. In Yorkshire, we have such wonderful fresh produce – the rhubarb for example. We’re thinking of creating a rhubarb recipe to share with you; if anyone has a great recipe they’d like to share please feel free to get in touch on social media!
