Sweet and sour tomato sauce

Sauces give that “something more” to both sweet and savory recipes and they change completely the final taste of a dish, giving completeness to it. This is a very intense and simple sauce perfect for roasted flavors.

Time of preparation

about half an hour + rest in the fridge



What did I use

a non-stick pan, a wooden spoon, a teaspoon


Tomato jam: 200 g (homemade with 500 gr of tomatoes, trimmed and cut into pieces and cooked with 125 gr of sugar and the juice of half a lemon for about one hour, then put in a glass vase well closed with its lid and put upsidedown to cool to vacuum-seal it)

Brown sugar: 50 g

Honey: 50 g

Glucose syrup: 1 teaspoon

Lemon juice: 25 g

Worcestershire sauce: 25 g

Paprika: a pinch

How did I do

I put all the ingredients except the honey in the pan, I mixed well and I let them cook at slow fire for about 15 minutes.

I added the honey and I continued to cook the sauce for 10 minutes more.

The batter started at this point to become dense: I turned off the fire and added the glucose syrup and the paprika.

I let the sauce cool at room temperature first, then in the fridge, and I served it with roast chicken and potatoes.

Buon appetito!
