Tomato Sauce


  • 6 tomatoes
  • 1 ounce butter
  • 1 1/2 ounces flour
  • 1/2 spoonful sugar
  • 1/2 spoonful salt


If the tomatoes are ripe they need not be cooked; but if at all hard, boil them for five minutes. Then slice up and rub through a sieve. Put the butter into a small saucepan, and when it is dissolved stir in the flour and sugar; then pour in the tomato juice and stir until it boils; season with salt to taste. This is tomato sauce pure and simple; but it is often made with half stock and half tomato juice; it is suitable for chops, steaks, &c. If made thicker it is called a puree, and is served with braised and dressed meats.

Time: 5 minutes.
