Ketchup

Last year we tried for the first time to make our own ketchup. We used a receipt from a Swedish cookbook called I mormors skafferi (In grandmas’ pantry).

3 ½ kg tomatoes
3 onions
3 apples
1 teaspoon white pepper
1 ½ tablespoon 24% vinegar
about 1 dl salt
200 g sugar                                                                       
sodium benzoate

The ketchup we made after this receipt became to salty, so this year we improvised out from last years experience. If you want to do it remember to taste the ketchup and trust your own taste, not only the receipt.

First we chopped the tomatoes, onions and apples, we put it all in a saucepan and cooked it on a low heat for about 15 minutes. Then we strained it through a colander, working it through with a wooden spoon until there were nothing left but skins and seeds. We put the sauce back in the pan and added pepper, salt, sugar and vinegar. When the ketchup had boiled for a while and been reduced to a nice consistency, we took it of the cooker and put just a little of sodium benzoate in it.

This year we are much more pleased with the result then last year.
