Tomato sauce for 4 persons
  1. 1 kilogram (2.2 lb) well ripe tomatoes
  2. 1 carrot
  3. 1 onion
  4. 1 small branch thyme
  5. 1 bay leaf
  6. 2 garlic cloves
  7. 1 soupspoonful tomato paste
  8. 2 soupspoonfuls caster sugar
  9. 1 piece (big as a nut) butter
  10. Table salt and freshly grounded black pepper


In a thick deep frying pan, gently stew into olive oil the carrot and the thinly sliced onion, then add thyme, bay leaf, degermed and crushed garlic and the tomato paste.
Add the tomatoes cut into pieces, salt and black pepper and caster sugar (to get rid of acidity).
Cook in the oven ( 356°F) during 1 hour.
Remove the thyme from the tomato sauce, then blend it and sieve it carefully. Put a nut of butter on top : your tomato sauce is ready for use.
