Make Your Own Tomato Ketchup
Ringo | On 09, Oct 2014
Ketchup is one of the condiments that should be absent in a house. Most of us here can’t eat a fried food without this fabulous dip.
Ketchup vary in color, main ingredient and taste. But, I can say that a larger percentage of ketchup lovers prefer those sweet and sour kicks from Heinz and Del Monte tomato ketchup.
Note: I am included to that large percentage.
Due to my work and business schedules going out for me is hard; noting that I don’t want to go out on Sundays as I ended going home for relief from the pile of people around (hey, I’m introvert). So, I just make my own ketchup and I will teach you my very simple recipe.
Note 2: This recipe can refill a 14 oz bottle of a popular brand and with extra!
- 400 grams tomato sauce
- 3/4 cup brown sugar
- 1/2 cup white vinegar
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 2 cups water
- 2 onion – finely chopped
- 3 cloves garlic – finely minched
- In a pan boil water along with onions and garlic for about 10 minutes.
- Strain and add to a tomato sauce and brown sugar mixture in a separate pan.
- Boil until it thickens (about 5 minutes).
- Add vinegar, salt and put into boil while mixing for about a minute.
- Let it cool down and fill your bottle.
You can adjust the sweetness and sour flavor by adding or putting less sugar or vinegar from this recipe. You can also add more thickness by boiling it for a few minutes.
