Barbecue Sauce Thermomix

I go a whole bunch of Italian prune plums from my sister in the Okanagan and decided I wanted to make my own barbecue sauce as I also had a flat of beautiful tomato's. I found a recipe in Jo Whitton's book called Quirky Cooking. She is a big hit with all the Thermomix Australian users and does some really healthy cooking. I changed the recipe slightly as I went along and here is my version and it tasted really nice.  Barbecue sauces vary widely and everyone has there own version of the best sauce.  My goal is to always try making new and different ones. I have also made another batch adding 1 cube fresh ginger as well as 50 g molasses and it also tasted quite nice. I made pork ribs the other day and used this sauce.  It was a big hit so here is the recipe.


1000g fresh tomato's
200g plums pits removed
200g red onions
1 pepper (red, green,?)
1 large Jalapeno (I like spice and I couldn't find thai chilli's
4 garlic cloves
100g apple cider vinegar
50g coconut sugar
3 cloves (you can add ground up ones)
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1 Tablespoon chilli flakes (my homemade ones)
2 tsp smoked paprika
2tsp liquid smoke
2 tsp salt

Place all ingredients in bowl and with the help of the spatula blend 40sec/ speed8 until combined.
Scrape down.
Cook 45 minutes/100C/speed 2 with simmering basket on top of bowl.
Remove simmering basket, insert measuring cup and blend 30 sec speed 5-9 gradually.
Fill into sterilized jars and seal.  Make sure tops have sealed.
Keep in fridge after opening.
