Yesterday I made ketchup. From scratch. And boy is it YUMMY!
And it was so very easy to make! Just put the ingredients in a bowl and stir. I adapted the recipe from Simply Scratch who adapter her recipe from Hillbilly Housewife. Both good websites for learning how to make things from scratch! Here is the recipe:
2 cans of tomato paste (6 oz cans)
1/2 cup dark brown sugar (I didn't have any so I put white sugar and a tsp of molasses)
1/2 tsp dry ground mustard (I didn't have this either, so I squirted a teaspoon of regular mustard)
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp cinnamon
2 pinches ground cloves
2 pinches allspice
1 pinch cayenne pepper
2/3 cup of water
4 Tbls of white vinegar
Stir all ingredients together until smooth and the sugar is dissolved. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator. Use as you would ketchup---only enjoy your food more because this is so yummy!
AND it has no high fructose corn syrup.....which makes me happy.
