Homemade Ketchup

Go down

default Homemade Ketchup

Post by Adrian on 27th September 2011, 2:02 pm



Ingredients:

7 liters of tomatoes
1/2 cup sugar
2 tablespoons dry mustard
1 tablespoon ground allspice
2 cups cider vinegar
3 tablespoons salt
1 tablespoon black pepper

(I make a lot in a batch - scale the recipe to suit your needs.)

Preparation:

Select good, ripe tomatoes. Scald and mill or strain through a coarse sieve to remove seed and skin. When the tomatoes become cold add the remaining ingredients. Let simmer slowly for 3 hours.

When you can leave a trace across the surface of your ketchup, it is ready.

Pour into hot sterilized 1-pint jars and seal. Process for 15 minutes in boiling water bath. Add 5 minutes processing time for altitudes from 1,001 to 6,000 feet, and another 5 minutes if over 6,000 feet.


Notes
I grind my spices with a pestle and mortar and believe that the best tastes come from fresh ground spice rather than pre-ground - I heartily recommend the investment in a good pestle and mortar.

Be sparing with the pepper and allspice, it is very easy to over spice tomato ketchup

I like to leave the seeds in, but you can sieve them out for a more Heinz look..

I prefer it, but have never really liked commercial ketchups, they tend to be too sweet for my tastes

Personally, I hate it, but OH likes it on his fried cheese sandwhiches.
