Food Monday ~ Sauce for your Chips

Do you shake a blob of tomato sauce on you chips, or eggs & bacon?  I know people who cannot live without a bottle of Tomato sauce in the fridge.  Have you ever thought of making it?

On my journey down memory lane with this old cookery book, I found a recipe for tomato sauce.  I will reproduce it here.

Tomato Store Sauce

3 lbs red tomatoes
1 small onion
1 clove or more
10 peppercorns
1 bay leaf
1 blade of mace
1 dessertspoon salt
½ pint vinegar
3 ozs sugar

Cut the tomatoes in halves and chop the onions.  Place all the ingredients, except the sugar and the cayenne, in a pan and simmer for 1 hour.  Pass through a sieve, return to the saucepan and boil hard for a few minutes to reduce to a thin cream.  Add the sugar and cayenne.  Pour the sauce into bottles.  When cold, cork tightly and store.
