by | Jan 2, 2018 | Sauces & Gravies

3 cups pineapple juice

14-ounce can diced tomatoes or stewed tomatoes

1/2 cup tomato paste or puree

1-2 tablespoons honey (optional)

1 onion, cut in fourths

1 green pepper, cut in fourths

3 cloves garlic, minced

1 teaspoon basil

1 teaspoon salt (or less to taste)

1 tablespoon onion powder

3 tablespoons cornstarch

1. Place all ingredients in blender
and blend for a few seconds, just enough
to chop the onion and pepper but not puree.

2. Pour into a saucepan and bring to a boil;
reduce heat and simmer for about 10 minutes.

3. Mix about 3 tablespoons cornstarch
in a small amount of water and slowly
stir into the simmering sauce until it is
as thick as you like it.
