- 1/2 teaspoon peppercorns shopping list

How to make it
- Mix cranberries, onions, and 1 cup water in a large (at least 1 gallon) enamel or stainless-steel kettle, cover, and simmer 20 to 30 minutes, stirring now and then, until mushy.
- Puree, a little at a time, by buzzing 20 to 30 seconds in an electric blender at low speed or 15 to 20 seconds in a food processor fitted with the metal chopping blade, or put through a food mill. Press through a fine sieve.
- Place in a clean large kettle and cook, uncovered, at a slow boil until volume is reduced by half. (Note: It is important that kettle be large to keep ketchup from spattering kitchen.)
- Meanwhile, wash and sterilize 2 (1-pint) jars and their closures, stand them on a baking sheet, and keep warm in a 250-degree F. oven until needed.
- Tie celery seeds, mustard seeds, allspice, cinnamon, peppercorns, and bay leaves in cheesecloth and add to kettle along with salt, set lid on askew, and simmer 1/2 hour. Remove spice bag, add vinegar and sugar, and cook, uncovered, at a slow boil, stirring frequently, until very thick. (Note: Toward the end, you will have to stir constantly to prevent scorching.)
- Ladle ketchup into jars, filling to within 1/8 inch of tops, wipe rims, and seal. Cool, check seals, and store in a cool, dark, dry place. Let stand 2 weeks before using.
- Yield: 2 pints
