INGREDIENTS

2 brown onions, roughly chopped ( optional)
1/2 a head of garlic (about 6-8 cloves) roughly chopped
50g olive oil
1kg tinned Roma tomatoes,
80g apple cider vinegar
100g tamari or gluten free soy sauce
100g Rapadura or coconut sugar or chopped dates
1/4 tsp ground allspice
1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp ground cloves
1/4 tsp ground ginger

METHOD

Place onions and garlic in a saucepan with the oil
Add oil and saute until soft.

Add remaining ingredients

Cook for for 1 hour, then blend until you have your desired consistency.

Variations:

You can play with the flavour, adding in one or more of the following if you like, and adjusting the sweetness (and sweetener) to taste:

fresh basil and/or oregano or chives
a little rosemary or thyme
black pepper
smoked paprika
a red chilli or chilli powder
a few sprigs fresh parsley

Note: In the fridge this will keep a few weeks. Or if you like you can put it into glass jars or bottles with screwtop lids that will seal well, then boil the sealed jars for 15-20 minutes to vacuum seal. This way you can keep it in the pantry indefinitely until opened. (After opening store in the fridge.)
