4 cans of plum tomatoes (the best you can get)

And some meat if you want I like to use brisket of beef

Sieve the tomatoes into a big pan make sure there isn't any seeds in the tomato juice

Bring the tomato juice to the boil

Add half the bottle of wine, garlic, bay leaves and meat if using

Leave to simmer for 6/8 hours

Then serve with bread or pasta or use in recipes

My father in law always used to make this sauce which he learnt from his mother. When ever he made it he was always let me know that there has been a tomato explosion and to come round in6-8 hours to get some sauce. Now me, my partner and our son all make it together!

A dash of local for every season
