How to make it

  • Put tomatoes, onions, and pepper in pot and cook until soft. Press mixture through a sieve. Cook rapidly until thick. Around an hour.
  • Reduce heat.
  • Tie all whole spices in a cheesecloth bag and drop into pot. Add sugar and salt to mix.
  • Cook on low about 25 minutes, stir frequently. Don't let ketchup stick to bottom of the pan.
  • Now add your vinegar, paprika, and cook until thick. Again, stir often so ketchup doesn't stick to bottom of pan.
  • Mixture should be boiling hot when you put into jars as usual, leave a little room at the top. Make sure your jar lid pops when you seal.
  • Note - if you grow everything yourself, it will taste better. Try it!
