Thankyou very much for this recipe Felicity. I experimented and I love it. Such a brilliant sauce base and I added some chilli and extra tomato. I wont need to buy bbq sauce from a shop again, and this recipe is oh so easy, and also very easy to play with to suit your tastes. I doubled up the tomato and threw in a few chillis. If anyone can teach me how to preserve and store for long life I’d appreciate it! I’d like to make various batches of this sauce!!
