Homemade Ketchup

I made a 5 pint batch of homemade Ketchup tonight, using the spice packet from Mrs. Wages.  It turned out to be a really good sauce, but I’ll be damned if it didn’t take almost 3 hours.  It had better be REALLY, REALLY good.

Chop tomatoes, boil 25 minutes.  Strain out the skin and seeds (takes a long time), then boil the pulpy juice another 20 minutes.  Add vinegar, sugar and spice packet, boil again.  Then can into prepared jars with prepared lids and boil them another 40 minutes.

Seriously, it had really better taste awesome.  Or maybe I’m just tired.

  1. Sounds like a lot of work. Lettuce know how it tastes…

  2. Actually I tried it this morning from a bit of extra that went straight into the fridge. It’s sweet and delicious…ALMOST a BBQ sauce. I’m just so happy it doesn’t have HFCS in it.
