  • Chopping board
  • Chef Knives
  • Blender
  • wooden spoon
  • large saucepan


  • 6 tomatoes truss or roma
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 100 ml white vinegar
  • 1 thumbsized piece ginger
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1-2 red chili I used 1.5
  • .5 lemon juiced


  • Blend all ingredients together.
  • Cook on a medium heat for approx 1 hour or until it's sticky and jam like consistency. Taste half way through cooking and adjust seasoning as necessary - see tips below.
  • Once cooked allow to cool and store in fridge



  • if it's too salty add extra sugar
  • if it's too spicy add a little extra lemon juice or sugar
  • jam-like consistency means that it should be glossy and it should slide slowly/gently off the back of the spoon. You can tailor the consistency to your intended use for it
  • you can substitute 1 can of tomatoes and/or 1 tsp chilli flakes to keep the cost down. Beware though that the flavour, whilst good, won't be the same
