How to Make Homemade Bacon Ketchup

Step-by-Step

  1. Saute onion and garlic until tender and caramelized in a tablespoon or two of oil.
  2. Add brown sugar to caramelized onions and garlic, and cook a couple of minutes until well integrated. Add tomatoes, roast bell peppers, paprika, bay leaf and fresh thyme.
  3. Simmer about 1 hour. Add salt and pepper to taste. Add balsamic vinegar at the end. (This will balance the sugar.)

  5. Keeps well in a refrigerated container for about three weeks.
