  • 140 g Tomato Puree
  • 130 g Tomato Ketchup
  • 50 ml Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 1 tsp Minced Garlic
  • 3 tsp Brown sugar 13g
  • 1 tbsp Worcestershire Sauce 17ml (GF and Vegan)
  • 1 tsp Tabasco Sauce
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 1 tsp Pepper
  • 1 tsp Paprika
  • 2 tbsp Whisky optional


  • Start by combining all the ingredients into a saucepan
  • If adding whisky, add this in to the pan too, I used honey Jack Daniels (which isn't vegan) but we had some left in the house, however bourbons work great too! 
  • Place over low heat and bring to a simmer stirring occasionally.  
  • After a few minutes the sugar should have dissolved so remove from the heat and leave to cool before decanting. 
  • Store in the refrigerator up to 6 months.
