[b]Grilled Tomato Sauce
From Steven Raichlen

Makes about 3 1/2 cups.

5 ripe tomatoes 2# total, cut in half crosswise, and stem ends removed
1 medium onion, peeled, quartered
1 rib celery
4 cloves garlic, peeled, skewered on wooden toothpick
3 Tbs. extra virgin olive oil
1 tsp. oregano
1/2 tsp. hot pepper flakes
1 bay leaf
6 fresh basil leaves
coarse salt
freshly ground black pepper
1/4 to 3/4 cup chicken stock, vegetable stock or water

Cook tomatoes, onions, celery and garlic in greased and preheated grill (George Foreman grill) until nicely browned. Transfer grilled vegetables and let cool.

Finely chop onions, celery and garlic by hand or in a food processor. Heat olive oil in large sauce pan over medium heat. Add chopped onion, celery and garlic, oregano, hot pepper flakes and bay leaf and cook until lightly browned, about 5 minutes.

Coarsely puree tomatoes and juices with basil in a food processor. Add tomato mixture to saucepan, with vegetables. Bring to a simmer over medium heat, then let sauce simmer gently until thick and richly flavored, 8-10 minutes. Season with salt and black pepper to taste. Sauce should be thick but pourable. If too thick, add a little stock or water. Remove and discard the bay leaf.

Sauce can be refrigerated, covered up to 4 days, or frozen for up to 2 months.[/b]

[b]Black-Eyed Pea-And-Tomato Salsa

Recipe By : Cooking Light, Nov/Dec 1994

Vegetable cooking spray *
1 cup onion, chopped
1/2 cup lean Canadian-style bacon, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 tsp ground cumin
1/4 tsp ground pepper
1 can (15 oz) black-eyed peas, drained
1 can (14 1/2 oz) whole tomatoes, undrained and chopped
1/3 cup fresh cilantro, minced
1 Tbl fresh jalapeno pepper,finely chopped

*I don't use cooking spray...I prefer to lightly coat pan with olive oil, as spray contains additives that eventually coat and ruin your cookware-CB.

Coat a large nonstick skillet with cooking spray; place over medium heat until hot. Add onion, bacon and garlic; saute 5 minutes. Stir in cumin, pepper, peas, and tomatoes. Remove from heat; stir in remaining ingredients. Spoon into a bowl; cover and chill 1 to 8 hours.

Yield: 3-1/2 cups (serving size: 1/4 cup).

Serve at room temperature with Italian bread or no-oil tortilla chips[/b]

Thanks for the above salsa recipe Craig. I just knocked one up as I had all ingredients on hand. YUM. Dug in with a couple of rice chips straight away and it is great and so easy. Will dig in properly when the missus gets home.

Is home made ketchup really that much better than store bought?

KC, how did your grandmother prepare the tomatoes before cooking?

The quick answer to that question, Don, is [b]YES[/b]. I'm going out of town today, but will try to get some recipes on next week.

Authentic Chile de Arbol Table Salsa


angelique February 28, 2006 10:41 PM

Wow...I haven't used my [i]Molcajete[/i] in years. Salsa has a very different taste and texture when a Molcajete is used. I noticed that the recipe called for some very non-traditional ingredients.

As a rule of thumb, fresh garlic cloves and salt are the first to be mashed into a paste in the Molcajete with just a little water (as necessary). Next chiles are incorporated into the paste. The third set of ingredients include tomatillo or tomatoes (boiled and cooled with skins removed); and possibly onions and/or cilantro for texture. Fimally, spices such as ground cumin (if using whole cumin, grind first with salt then add garlic), or Mex. Oregano are added to taste.
