Ingredients

Metric

Imperial

1
Place a large pan over a medium heat and add olive oil. Once hot, sweat the onions and chilli until soft
2
Stir in the cayenne pepper, smoked paprika and seasoning, then add the balsamic vinegar and sugar. Mix well and leave to reduce until the vinegar thickens
3
Add the tinned tomatoes, thyme, Tabasco, garlic and bay leaf, then stir well. Allow the sauce to simmer for at least 2 hours over a low heat until nice and thick. Check the seasoning throughout the cooking process
4
Store any leftover sauce in the fridge for several days after cooking, or store in sealable jars - if the jars are sterilised and sealed properly, the sauce will last for several months stored in a cool, dark place
