Tomato Ketchup

Still trying to deal with a glut of tomatoes from the garden and no more will fit in the freezer, so ketchup it had to be.

  • 3Kg tomatoes roughly chopped
  • 4 onions sliced
  • 1 red pepper, chopped

Place in a large pan and cook until soft. Push this through a sieve into a large pan.
  • 100g soft brown sugar
  • 200ml cider vinegar
  • 1/4 tsp english mustard powder

Add the spices in a muslin bag
  • Piece of cinnamon stick
  • 1 1/2 tsp whole allspice
  • 1 1/2 tsp whole cloves
  • 1 1/2 tsp ground mace
  • 1 1/2 tsp celery seeds
  • 1 1/2 whole black peppercorns
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 garlic clove, bruised

Bring to the boil and simmer , remove the spice bag after 20-30 mins , cook until pulpy , pour into sterilised bottles.

Best used with chips, burgers, etc. Result is pretty almost as good as heinz
