Tudor Cottage's Homemade Tomato Ketchup
So very much better than any commercial variety, you'll surely never go back to Heinz. The list of ingredients is a bit long I know, but you may well have most of them in your cupboard and the recipe is easy. The ketchup will keep in the fridge for at least three months.
3 tins chopped tomatoes in thick tomato sauce
Half tsp. smoked salt
Half tsp. ground black pepper
Half tsp. mustard powder
Half tsp. celery salt
Half tsp. smoked paprika
Half tsp. ground ginger
Half. tsp. ground cloves
2 fresh bay leaves
2 fat cloves of garlic
140g soft brown sugar
7 tbsps. wine vinegar
Empty the three tins of tomatoes into a food processor and whizz to a smooth puree
Transfer to a large saucepan and stir in all the rest of the ingredients
Bring to the boil and then simmer, stirring occasionally, until it becomes thick and the consistency of ketchup. Taste and adjust the spicing and seasoning to your liking.
Pour into sterilised bottles (jars put through the dishwasher on a hot cycle are fine). The sealed jars of ketchup will keep in the fridge for at least three months.
