I was so impressed with how my butter turned out last night that I decided to give ketchup a shot. It took quite some time to boil it down and there are some things I would change for the next batch but overall it came out pretty well.
- 1 can of tomato sauce (15oz)
- 1/3 cup white vinegar
- 1/3 cup honey
- 1 tablespoon onion powder
- 1 teaspoon salt
The original recipe I found called for tomato puree but I didn’t have any in the pantry so I substituted sauce. The primary difference is that tomato sauce already had spices added. I think that’s probably part of the reason why I thought the ketchup was a bit too sweet.
Still, it turned out pretty good for a first try. I’m looking forward to making ketchup from the tomatoes in my garden this year.
