There is a recipe from an 80s Ezy-sauce book that goes like this:

8kg ripe tomatoes
3kg onions
2 tablespoons salt
4 tablespoons dry mustard
4 tablespoons curry powder
3kg sugar
1 bottle Ezy Sauce
1 cup flour
1 cup water

Peel tomatoes and onions. Slice and place in a large bowl. Mix in salt, cover and stand for 12 hours. Empty tomatoes, onions and salt into a large saucepan and bring to the boil. Mix mustard and curry powder together with about 1/2 cup water to make a thin paste. Stir into pan with sugar and Ezy Sauce. Boil for about 2 1/4 hours. Mix about 1/2 cup water into flour until smooth. Stir into pan contents and cook further 15 minutes. Fill, using a small jug or ladle, into hot sterilised bottles or jars, cover loosely, cool then seal. Makes approximately 7.5 litres. Serving suggestion: Ham, beef, cheese, pork or pastrami.

I will check out the salt in the other recipe when I can.

We dont peel the tomatoes any more. We just dice them. I do not have any complaints from the visitors. Use RAW sugar. Do not use Hydroponc tomatoes (too much water in Them) Mostsuccess is with Biodynamic or organic tomatoes. we still have 2 bottles of Wilds ezi-sauce when it was made by wild.s in Arrarat Vic Aust.

I have searched for that 1980s Ezy-Sauce book everywhere, till I went to the source, Cerebos, in Australia. If you email them and ask, they'll post you out a photocopy of heaps of Ezy-Sauce recipes. Yay! Email: consumer@cerebos.com.au

Can I used tinned tomatoes for the ezy sauce tomato relish? I have some homegrown tomatoes but not enough to make up 8 kgs and I would like to make the full quantity while I am at it so was wondering about using tinned tomatoes to make up the balance.
Thanks Barb
