    How long will it store for .  -  20 Sep 2013


    Excellent recipe. We bottle it to take away in our motorhome to use for spaghetti bolognaise. Has anyone tried this with frozen tomatoes?  -  10 Jul 2014


    This is lovely as it is but, I forgot about it and it was in the oven for two hours . The tomatoes had caramelised and cooked down more which, when I blitzed it, gave a terrific rich, concentrated flavour. I will use it a sauce/soup base rather than on its own. One of the best recipes for tomato sauce that I have made.  -  11 Oct 2013
