“Americans can eat garbage, provided you sprinkle it liberally with ketchup, mustard, chili sauce, Tabasco sauce, cayenne pepper, or any other condiment which destroys the original flavor of the dish”
I can generally take or leave ketchup, but it occurred to me that I have never had ketchup that didn’t come from the store.
What if home made ketchup turned out to be the greatest thing ever?
So here it is.
Using a recipe found in Darina Allen’s fantastic “Forgotten Skills of Cooking”, I bring you homemade ketchup.
Thinner than the store bought stuff and sweeter than I’d like, but it IS super tomato-y.
I’m prepared to call it a success, although it did not turn out to be the greatest thing ever. Heinz may rest easy.
But come on. I made ketchup!
