How to make ketchup
Serves: ½ cup
  • I cup crushed tomatoes (be sure the only ingredients are ripe tomatoes) I use Cento Brand
  • 1 tablespoon white wine vinegar
  • 1teaspoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1½ tablespoon sugar (if you like sweet ketchup use 2 tablespoon)
  • ⅛ teaspoon onion powder
  • ⅛ teaspoon celery salt
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  1. Add all ingredients to a medium saucepan and heat on medium for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally turn the temperature lower if it's starts to splatter out of the pan.
  2. pour mixture through a strainer to remove any seeds or skin from tomatoes
  3. Let it cool a few minutes
  4. place a few paper towels in a strainer over a bowl and pour mixture into paper towels, the water will drop into the bowl
  5. what is left in the paper towel is the ketchup, nice and thick and with less water
  6. scoop out the ketchup and serve, or place in covered container and refrigerate
