                                                                                                              From Raymond Blanc's Kitchen
                                    1 sprig fresh thyme
                                    1 sprig fresh garlic flowers or chive flowers
                                    4-6 drops Tabasco sauce
                                    1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
                                    2-3 dashes angostura bitters

                                   Preparation method
                                   1. Place all of the ingredients into a bowl and mix together.
                                   2. Place the mixture, in batches, into a food processor and pulse five
                                     times for 1-2 seconds each time. Transfer the purée into a large bowl
                                     and repeat until all of the vegetables have been puréed.
                                   3. Cover the bowl with cling film and chill in the fridge for six hours.
                                   4. Line a clean bowl with a large piece of muslin and spoon in the
                                     tomato mixture. Draw the corners of the muslin cloth together and tie
                                     up tightly. String the muslin 'bag' up above the bowl to catch the
                                     strained juices. Leave to strain overnight. (Do not be tempted to
                                     squeeze the muslin.)
                                   5. Once strained, cover and refrigerate until needed.
