I made tomato ketchup.
It was not a resounding success.
An afternoon of chopping and simmering and stirring. A seemingly vast amount of veg.
And one, yes ONE, miserable little pot of not that great tasting ketchup.
I used a recipe from the my current favourite cook book, Hungry? from the good folk at Innocent smoothies.
It tastes ok, but more BBQ than tomato ketchup, and is little more gelatinous than it should be.
But my main bug bear is the time taken vs the yield.
I was tempted to give up on ketchup making endeavours in some kind of tomato induced rage.
It is not as if it forms a significant part of our diet, so does it really matter if we buy a bottle of tomato ketchup once in a while?
No, it really doesn’t. Obviously.
But now I am determined to have another go.
I know that Hattie from Free Our Kids has made some previously, so I may give her recipe a try.
Anyone else tried and had more success than me? Care to share the recipe if so..?!
