Ketchup Sauce

Total Time 3 hours



  • 1. Sauté the chopped vegetables in a large saucepan with olive oil.
  • 2. When the vegetables are wilted, add the chopped tomatoes, cloves, bay leaves, and continue cooking over moderate heat, skimming occasionally.
  • 3. When the tomatoes have lost most of their water, add all the other ingredients.
  • 4. Season very lightly because the sauce tends to shrink when cooking.
  • 5. Stir with a wooden spoon and let it simmer over very low heat for at least 3 hours, stirring frequently.
  • 6. When the sauce has thickened, strain it through a very fine sieve, leaving the bay leaves and cloves, and collect it in another saucepan.
  • 7. Taste the sauce and, if necessary, add more salt and pepper.
  • 8. Put the sauce back on moderate heat and let it simmer gently for another ten minutes.
  • 9. Pour the sauce into jars with airtight lids.
