Lately we’ve been experimenting with making our own condiments at home and we’re happy to share with you our recipe for homemade ketchup. Whether you call it ketchup, catsup (South-Eastern US), tomato sauce (Australia/New Zealand), or red sauce (Whales/Scotland), we can agree that this condiment is fairly ubiquitous and a worthwhile thing to keep in the refrigerator.
This is a straight-forward recipe that takes about 30 minutes start to finish; the longest part of the recipe is waiting for it to cool in order to dip in your sweet potato fries or use it as the base for our amazing barbecue sauce. We know you’ll love it.
15 oz tomato sauce
6 oz tomato paste
2 tsp apple cider vinegar
1/2 Tbsp dijon mustard
3/4 tsp garlic powder
1 clove, crushed
Place all ingredients in a medium pot, and simmer on medium-low heat, stirring regularly until mixed evenly. (I know that looks sloppy, but I wanted to show how little effort this really takes.)
Continue to cook on low for 20-30 minutes, stirring occasionally to prevent burning, until the consistency is to your liking—we go for closer to 30 because we like our ketchup thicker. Allow to cool, and that’s all there is to it.
Making homemade ketchup is so easy, we wanted to share with you. Be sure to give this ketchup recipe a try and let us know how it goes!
