Currywurst Sauce is a condiment found throughout Germany, especially at steet food vendors selling assorted frankfurters and wurst.  A very simple homemade kethcup flavored with aromatic curry.

Makes approximately 1+ cup sauce:

  • 12 ounces cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1/3 cup red wine vinegar
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1 clove garlic, quartered
  • 4 teaspoons curry powder
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • pinch cayenne pepper
  • Pinch of ground cloves

In a 4-cup saucepan, comine all ingredients and stir over medium heat until tomatoes break down entirely.  Simmer an additional 10 minutes.  Blend ingredients in a blender or with an immersion blender until smooth.  Pour into a lidded jar and refrigerate until ready to use.  Sauce can be served cold or warm.
