Versatile Homemade Ketchup
olive oil, extra virgin
yellow onion, finely chopped, about 2.5 tablespoons
garlic, finely minced, about 1 teaspoon
tomato puree, canned or fresh
tomato sauce, canned or fresh
apple cider vinegar
salt, kosher variety
Gather your ingredients.
This ketchup can be used in a variety of ways, let’s explore some.
ALL-PURPOSE: Make exactly as directed, and use it on just about anything that you would use regular ketchup. Excellent on french fries, and veggies.
FISH: Increase the apple cider vinegar to 3/4 cup, and add about a tablespoon of finely chopped dill.
SEAFOOD: Make as you would for fish; however, add about a tablespoon of horseradish sauce.
Add the olive oil to a pan over medium heat, and then add the diced onions.
Sauté until the onions are beginning to soften, and slightly brown, about 3 to 5 minutes.
Add the garlic, and continue to sauté until fragrant, about 1 minute.
Add the remainder of the ingredients to the saucepan.
Stir and combine until, the mixture begins to simmer.
Add to the bowl of your slow cooker.
Cook on low for six hours.
Chef’s Note: For a smoother ketchup, remove from the slow cooker after six hours, and blend in a food processor, or blender until the mixture is nice and smooth.
Store in tightly covered jars in the refrigerator, until ready to use. Enjoy.
Keep the faith, and keep cooking.
