Tomato Sauce


  • 1/2 can or 1 pint of tomatoes
  • 1 ounce of carrot
  • 1 ounce of onion sliced
  • 1 ounce of salt pork cut in small bits
  • 1 bouquet of sweet herbs
  • 4 cloves
  • 1 clove of garlic, if it is liked
  • 1 teaspoonful of salt
  • 1/4 saltspoonful of pepper
  • 1 gill of stock, gravy, or water


Put into a thick sauce-pan the tomatoes, carrot, onion, salt pork, sweet herbs, cloves, garlic, if it is liked, salt, pepper, and the stock, gravy, or water; simmer slowly one hour, and pass through a sieve with a wooden spoon. This is an excellent sauce for any breaded side dish.
