- Preparation and cooking time
- Makes 800ml
Batch cooking sieved tomato sauce means you can freeze it in portions and defrost to use however you please
- STEP 1
Put the tomatoes, garlic and olive oil in a saucepan over a medium heat. Cover and cook for 10 mins, shaking occasionally, until the tomatoes have collapsed completely.
- STEP 2
Season generously and add the sugar. Remove the lid and boil for 5 mins until the garlic is soft. Allow to cool, then sieve the pulp. You can now pour into freezer-proof containers and freeze for up to 3 months, or pour into jars and keep in the fridge for up to 1 week. Or use straight away in sauces, soups and stews.
