This recipe makes one 6 oz jar
Prep Time 10 mins
Cook Time 30 mins
Total Time 40 mins


  • 1 lb Tomatoes (diced with the skin on and keeping the seeds)
  • 1/4 Onion (diced)
  • 1/2 Lemon (juiced)
  • 1/4 Apple ( diced finely)
  • 1 tbs Honey (omit for Whole30)
  • 1 tbs Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 1/4 tsp Salt
  • 1/8 tsp Coriander
  • 1/8 tsp Cumin
  • 1/8 tsp Allspice
  • 1/8 tsp Ground Ginger


  • Put all of the ingredients into a large saucepan and bring to a boil.
  • Turn the heat down to a good simmer and stir occasionally, until the mixture has thickened, 20-40 min (more watery tomatoes will take longer - you can always pour out a bit of tomato juice if you need it quicker).
  • Remove from heat and if you desire, use a hand immersion blender or put into a blender/food processor to get a smoother consistency.
  • Either use immediately or store in the refrigerator for up to a week.
