  Ripe tomatoes 6 Pound, cored and chopped (Roma-Type)
  Onion 1 Large, chopped
  Chopped garlic 2 Tablespoon
  Cider vinegar 1 1⁄2 Cup (24 tbs)
  Sugar 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Ground coriander 1 Teaspoon
  Cayenne 3⁄4 Teaspoon
  Ground mace/Nutmeg 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Ground cinnamon 1⁄4 Teaspoon
  Dry bay leaf 1
  Salt 1 1⁄4 Teaspoon

In a blender or food processor, combine tomatoes, onion, and garlic, a portion at a time, and whirl until smoothly pureed.
Pour mixture through a fine strainer set over a 5- to 6-quart pan, stirring and pressing to push mixture through.
Discard any residue left in strainer.
To pan, add vinegar, sugar, coriander, cayenne, mace, cinnamon, and bay leaf.
Boil gently, uncovered and stirring often, until mixture is thick and reduced to about 4 cups, 1 1/2 to 2 hours (adjust heat to maintain a gentle boil; if mixture splatters out of pan, lower heat).
Add salt to taste.
Remove and discard bay leaf.
