To tell you the truth I don’t mind the store bought sauces. They are pretty good…..however, I like to make this difficult. Besides it’s more fun making your own from scratch. And this particular version can be quite spicy depending on if you keep the seeds or not.
Do yourself a big favour and make this the day before. Let the flavours meld in the fridge before using or freezing. Notice my Canadian spelling on favour and flavour? Must drive you Yanks insane, eh! 🙂
PEEL YOUR TOMATOES!
To gain a uniform smooth texture you have to remove the skin. Also, the skin by itself is bitter, don’t believe me take some off and give them a munch! So you’re going to have to par boil enough tomatoes to equal about 28oz then peel off the skins.
Also, by doing this you don’t have to strain the sauce after.
ROAST YOUR RED PEPPERS!
That’s right stick them on your burner if you have a gas stove, or on a BBQ. Turn frequently till they have char marks on all sides. When done wrap peppers in foil and set aside for a bit. The internal steam will continue to cook and soften them. When ready to use. With your hand scrape off the burned parts.
