Begin by preparing the tomatoes. Using the tip of a sharp knife, score a cross in the base of each tomato. Blanch carefully in boiling water, immediately plunging into ice water to cool (this process should loosen the skins of the tomatoes). Peel and deseed the tomatoes, then chop the flesh into chunks and set to one side
  • 500g of tomatoes
2
Place a large pan over a medium heat and add a small dash of oil. Sweat the onions without allowing them to colour, then add the spices and seasonings, chopped tomatoes, fruit, water, treacle and Worcestershire sauce to the pan
  • oil
  • 225g of onion, finely chopped
  • 15g of ginger

  • 1 pinch of salt
  • 5 juniper berries

  • 50g of dried apricots
  • 700ml of water
  • 4 tsp black treacle

Stir well to combine, then leave to reduce gently over a light simmer. Add the vinegar, continuing to reduce until the mixture thickens to form a sauce-like consistency
