Homemade tomato ketchup
I always make this tomato ketchup in summer, when tomatoes are of abundance – from our garden or from the shop.
Tomato ketchup tastes very good with grilled chicken or turkey. If the weather is bad, we would roast the chicken in the oven and tomato ketchup shouldn’t be missing.
As bring along to BBQ parties.
It is very fruity, slightly sour and sweet in taste. Can not be compared with the normal ketchup in the supermarket. Our children are crazy about it.
I use very ripe tomatoes, gelling agent 3:1, for example…
Like jam, homemade ketchup should be stored in a cool, dark room or cellar. Used jars should be kept in the refrigerator.
- 1 kg ripe tomatoes
- 250 g onions
- 1 apple
- 300 g sugar
- 1 Tbsp salt
- 1,5 Tbsp red pepper powder
- 1 tsp pepper freshly ground
- 0,5 tsp cinnamon
- 1 tsp coriander seeds
- 2 bay leaves
- 200 ml vinegar
- 1/2 package gelling agent 3:1
Cut the tomatoes into quarters and the apples into eight. Put to simmer for about 20 min.
Dice the onions and add to the tomato puree.
Add 200g sugar, salt, red pepper powder, pepper, cinnamon, and vinegar.
Put the crushed coriander seeds and the bay leaves into a tea bag and put in the pot.
Let simmer for 15 min stirring occasionally.
Mix sugar and gelling agent 3:1 together and mix well into the ketchup.
Simmer further 3 minutes.
Remove the spice bag.
Rinse the jars with boiling water and pour in the hot tomato ketchup.
Closing the jars immediately tight = vacuum.
