Help! Tomato sauce

carla8, Mar 15, 4:03am
Hi there me again with another problem!
I am making tomato sauce from a recipe I found on here with the excess of tomatoes we have grown. It is just simmering away now but looks like its not going to thicken up as much as I would like. Is there anything I can add to it to make it a bit thicker? The ingreds in it were: Tomatoes, green apples, onions, garlic, malt vinegar -simmered and whisked then added: sugar, salt, pepper, mixed spice and ground cloves. Thanks!

or just let it bubble away till the vinager boils its way through - some times it takes a while for the mix to boil through all the vinager... .

After it was all blended up and the sugar etc added it has been simmering from about 2 1/2 hours. It has thickened a bit more but is still quite runny

Just keep boiling until it reduces down. Have to boil the "water" out of it. But also bear in mind, that as it cools it will thicken a little too.
