Meat.World's picture
  Chili 1 , stemmed, seeded and chopped
  Garlic 1 Clove (5 gm), chopped
  Dry mustard 1 Teaspoon
  Basil 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Oregano 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Salt 1 Teaspoon
  Orange juice 2 Tablespoon
  Red wine vinegar 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Honey 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Onion 1 Small, finely chopped
  Oil 2 Tablespoon
  Tomatoes/3 cups 3/4 liter tomato puree made from drained, canned tomatoes 8 Medium, peeled seeded and chopped

Using a mortar and pestle, pound the chili, garlic, mustard, basil, oregano and salt to a paste.
Stir in the orange juice, vinegar and honey.
Press this seasoning mixture through a strainer into a bowl and set it aside.
In a large saucepan over medium heat, cook the chopped onion in the oil until it is soft but not brown.
Stir in the tomatoes and then the seasoning mixture.
Increase the heat to bring the sauce to a boil, then reduce the heat enough so the sauce gently simmers.
Stirring occasionally, cook the sauce, uncovered, for 30 to 40 minutes or until it thickens and is reduced to half of its original volume.
Taste the sauce and correct the seasoning.
