Chunky tomato sauce

Strawberry jam mastered yesterday. sooo good.

Thinking savoury next up, like a chutney but figure i'll ease into it with a tomato sauce. Baby steps you know.

Edmonds cookbook I leading towards. thing is i like my tom sauce chunkyish like the tuimato brand.

Says to run pulp thru seive. if I bypass this will i get stringy muck not fit for human consumption or a good alternative.

Cheers cooking peeps.

Running it thru a sieve takes the tomato skins out, and any solids, But there is a way to avoid them being in the mix.
Have a bowl of boiling water and place each tomato in that, it will split the skin, which you then peal off, Then make your sauce.
If you are adding onions , just be sure to slice it Real thin, then cut across that real thin , and so on, so that it ends up real small.
Add mixed herb's .
Good fun, and I hope it all works well for you.

instead of a sieve or mouli, just get out your old fashioned egg beater and whisk away. the sauce will not be smooth,but should be chunky. I do this with relish too.

Cool thanks guys/girls. We be trawling the riverbank market tomorrow for cheapest tomatoes. And particular variety i should look for over others?

I whizz mine with a wand straight into the pot of hot sauce after it's cooked, skins and all.

No not really, depends whether you are bothered by acid. The 'Roma' are less acid. But no, any sort are fine.
