This is a part of "Milk comes from cows an other such nonsense-a practical guide to homesteading in the now! SRGD 2010


  1 6-ounce can tomato paste

2 T white vinegar or home made vinegar will work also

1 T brown sugar

1 t molasses, I use black strap from a local farm, because it is unsulfured.

1 t garlic powder

1 onion powder

1/4 t allspice, I skip this..,

1 t salt, I use sea salt

1 T corn syrup

1 1/4 cups water
 Mix together all ingredients in a saucepan over low heat; simmer gently until you get the consistency of ketchup, 45 minutes to 1 hour,

I promise it will feel like forever, but it will be worth it.

Now taste it...awhh that was all worth it....

 Allow to cool.

 Pour into container with a lid. Store in refrigerator.

Yield: 1 1/2 cups ketchup.
You can double this recipe  well and if you really wanted to you could can it for long term storage.
