Ketchup Recipe


Ketchup has to be one of the most used condiments in our home. We love it on everything, now that summer is here we can use fresh tomatoes from the garden to make fresh, healthy, ketchup. By making your own ketchup u can save quite a bit.

Ketchup

  •  24 large tomatoes peeled, chopped, cored
  • 1 large yellow onion
  • 1 large red bell pepper
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons celery seed
  • 1 tsp mustard seed
  • 1 tsp whole allspice
  • 1 stick cinnamon
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar 
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 1/2 cups cider vinegar
  • 1 tbsp paprika
In a large pot combine tomatoes, onion, and pepper and cook on medium heat until soft. Sieve the vegetables into the pot until you have a puree. 

Cook the puree on high until it is thick and reduced by half. 

Cut a 10 cm square of cheesecloth and place the celery seed, mustard seed, allspice, and cinnamon stick in the center of the bag and tie up all four corners to create a tight bag. 

Add the spice bag, brown sugar, and salt into tomato puree. Cook on low for 25 mins. 

Add the cider vinegar and paprika. Continue cooking stirring frequently until the mixture is thick. 

Now u can begin the canning process by pouring your ketchup into jars. Use a hot water bath and ensure a tight seal. Cool, label and store for up to one year. Ketchup will be ready to eat in one week. 

Enjoy the fruits of your labour and save a ton of money by using up all your tomatoes!

Studies have shown aspartame to be harmful to the brain). This ketchup recipe is great and has only 0.7 gram of carb per Tablespoon. Click here
