Preserving Method: Water Bath Canning

  1. COMBINE tomatoes, onions, garlic, hot pepper flakes and celery seeds in a large stainless steel saucepan. Bring to a boil over high heat, stirring constantly. Reduce heat, cover and boil gently until vegetables are soft, about 30 minutes.
  2. TRANSFER mixture, working in batches, to a sieve placed over a glass or stainless steel bowl and press with the back of a spoon to extract all the liquid and pulp. This can also be done using a food mill. Discard solids.
  3. RETURN liquid and pulp to saucepan. Add brown sugar, vinegar, lemon juice, salt, mace, mustard, ginger and cinnamon. Return to a boil over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally. Reduce heat and boil gently, stirring frequently, until mixture is thickened to the consistency of a thin commercial barbecue sauce, about 30 minutes.
  4. PREPARE boiling water canner. Heat jars in simmering water until ready for use. Do not boil.  Wash lids in warm soapy water and set bands aside.
  5. LADLE hot sauce into hot jars leaving 1/2 inch headspace. Remove air bubbles. Wipe rim. Center lid on jar. Apply band until fit is fingertip tight.  Place jar in boiling water canner. Repeat until all jars are filled.
  6. PROCESS jars in a boiling water canner for 20 minutes, adjusting for altitude. Remove jars and cool. Check lids for seal after 24 hours. Lid should not flex up and down when center is pressed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ball BBQ sauce First off, the yield for this recipe should be stated at 9 pints (a canner load) instead of only 3 pints. I made this sauce and canned it a couple of years ago as well. I recently made this recipe again. I used Roma tomatoes, onions and garlic from my garden. I used apple cider instead of the white vinegar. I also substituted 50% of the brown sugar with molasses. The initial cook time was 30 minutes and then ran it through a food mill. I further cooked this batch down for another 1.5 hours. Before finishing up I ran my immersion blender through it to give it a smoother texture. I then jarred it up and canned it per instructions. My final yield was 9 pints exactly. My taste test was this is sweet and sassy. Would make again.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Too Watery Waste of good tomatoes. Way too watery, too much cinnamon, too much red pepper flakes. Hot watery cinnamon smelling liquid.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from this is our first attempt at this recipe since we had an abundance of fresh tomatoes. we added tomato paste liquid smoke and McCormick's Smokehouse Black Pepper red, green, and yellow bell peppers, simmering down to a sauce. Awesome sauce! not like store bought, but has unique flavor. We also made your Fiesta Salsa and it is the bomb!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the flavors! I made this today with my bumper crop of the tomatoes and we love it. Based on the other review I added one can of tomato paste and simmered it down for an extra couple hours to get a thicker consistency.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from bbq sauce? My husband just made/canned this recipe yesterday. There was some left over so he put it directly in the fridge. We tried it last night. It tasted nothing like BBQ sauce. NOTHING. To me, it tasted like apple butter with a bit of heat on the back end. All in all, it doesn't taste bad but, again, absolutely does not taste ANYTHING like BBQ sauce.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Too thin I made this sauce. It does taste a bit Asian to me too. To make any BBQ sauce thicker, one needs to add some ketchup to the sauce. I have my own recipe for BBQ sauce and it's tangy and sweet. I use apple cider vinegar too.
