Add apples, plums or peppers to tomatoes and make flavorful sauces that are better and healthier than store-bought sauces.
Most often, homemade ketchup is harvested for the winter, so vinegar is indicated in all recipes. Ready ketchup is poured into sterilized jars, rolled up and, after cooling, removed to a cold place. But if you plan to eat the sauce soon, then you don't need to add vinegar.
1. Classic homemade ketchup
- 5 kg of ripe tomatoes;
- 1 kg of onions;
- 250 g sugar;
- 2 tablespoons of salt;
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon ground black pepper;
- 1 teaspoon paprika or ground red pepper;
- 1 teaspoon of ground cloves
- 50 ml vinegar 9% - optional.
Cut the tomatoes into large wedges, removing the core. Place in a saucepan and place over low heat. If after 10-15 minutes the tomatoes have not given juice, pour in a little water. Stir and simmer vegetables over medium heat for another 40-50 minutes.
Add coarsely chopped onions, bring to a boil and simmer over low heat for another 1, 5-2 hours. All this time, the mass should boil a little.
Remove the pan from heat. Add sugar, salt, cinnamon, black pepper, paprika or red pepper and cloves. Stir and grind the mass with a blender until smooth. You can then strain the ketchup through a sieve if you want to get rid of tomato seeds.
Place the pot on the stove again, bring to a boil and cook for another 1.5–2 hours. During this time, the ketchup will thicken. 10 minutes before the end of cooking, pour vinegar into a saucepan and stir.

Mince the garlic, parsley and peeled peppers through a meat grinder. For a spicier ketchup, use 3 hot peppers.
