Cooking homemade ketchup: spicy and fragrant
Homemade ketchup is quite easy to make. It is much healthier and tastier than store-bought. In addition, in any recipe there is always room for creativity. Make minimal changes to the composition of the spices — and you already enjoy a whole new shade of taste!
For cooking, we need (for 2.5 liters):
- 3 kg of tomatoes and plums;
- 1 tbsp salt;
- 250 g gelling sugar;
- 6 bay leaves;
- 6 peas of allspice;
- a little ground black pepper;
- ½ tsp cinnamon;
- 1 tbsp paprika;
- ½ tsp ginger;
- 6 cloves.
Preparing the tomatoes and plums
To make the sauce thick, choose only the hardest and most fleshy fruits. Cut them in half. Cut out the soft centers with seeds from the tomato, remove the seeds from the plums.
Ketchup is perfect for any meat and fish.
