All American Barbecue Sauce

All American Barbecue Sauce

10 LB firm ripe tomatoes cored, peeled, and chopped( I used 2 # 10 cans, 12 pounds )
2 lrg onions finely chopped( 1 red & 1 yellow )
3 x garlic cloves minced
1 tbl. Crushed red pepper
1 tbl. Celery seed
1 1/2 cup brown sugar
1 tbl. Dry mustard
2 tsp. salt
1 1/2 tsp. mace
1 tsp. ginger
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 cup vinegar, 5% acidity
1/3 cup lemon

Combine tomatoes, onions, garlic, red pepper
and celery seed in a large sauce-pot. Simmer,
covered, until vegetables are soft, about 30 minutes.
Press tomato mixture through a fine sieve or food
mill; discard seeds.

Return tomato mixture to the sauce-pot and add
the remaining ingredients. Cook over low heat
until mixture thickens, about 30 minutes. As
mixture thickens, stir frequently to prevent sticking.

Carefully ladle hot sauce into hot jars, leaving
1/4-inch head-space. Wipe jar rim clean. Place
lid on jar with sealing compound next to glass.
Screw band down evenly and firmly just until a
point of resistance is met - fingertip tight.

This makes about three pints of barbecue sauce.
Note: I let it cool and added some black pepper and some ground clove. YMMV. I then reheated it and canned it up. I like it.

The secret of life is honesty and fair dealing. If you can fake that,
you've got it made. -Groucho Marx (1890-1977)

That looks like a recipe that I am going to have to try.

Why did you let it cool before adding pepper and cloves ?
