- 14 oz Tomatoes fresh, peeled and seeded or Whole Canned tomatoes
- ½ cup Granulated Sugar
- 2 tbsp Water
- 1 Cinnamon Stick
- ¼ tsp Ground Nutmeg
- 1/8 tsp Ground Allspice
- ¼ tsp Salt
- 1 tbsp Hot Pepper Sauce (optional)
Blanche and peel the fresh tomatoes; squeeze out the seeds. Add all ingredients to a small sauce pot; bring to a simmer. Cook for 30 minutes on low, stirring occasionally. Remove cinnamon stick from the mixture. You may use the sauce as is, or puree for a smoother consistency.
This is a gourmet sauce or spread for stuffed strawberries(omit the hot sauce), white cheeses, or toast. Also delicious drizzled on pork. Think of it like a fruit jam, not tomato sauce.
