""No post on Sundays" he reminded them happily as he spread his marmalade on his newspapers"

The household favourite, Ketchup is here, but have you ever wondered how it's made?


This super easy homemade tomato ketchup recipe requires minimal prep but tastes so much better than the standard shop-bought variety! Better yet you can tailor the spices to suit your taste buds and compliment whatever you choose to serve it with!


Homemade Tomato Ketchup Ingredients:

(makes 1 large jar)

  • 500g tomato passata

  • 2 tbsp tomato puree

  • 60ml white wine vinegar

  • 2 tbsp balsamic vinegar

  • 4 tbsp brown sugar

  • 1 tsp salt

  • 1 tsp pepper

  • 1/2 tsp onion powder

  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder

  • 1/4 tsp celery salt

  • 1/4 tsp paprika

  • 1/4 tsp mixed spice

  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon

Homemade Tomato Ketchup Method:

  1. Place all the ingredients into a saucepan on a medium heat and whisk together until well combined.

  2. Bring to the boil and then turn the heat to a low. Place a lid on top and leave to simmer for 1 hour to allow the flavours to fully mature.

  3. Sterlise a jar by filling with boiling water. Leave for 1 minute and then pour out. Place the jar upside down on a grill rack and place in a hot oven to dry.

  4. Once the ketchup is ready, pour into the sterilised jar and seal. Doing this while hot will create a vacuum and keep the ketchup fresher for longer.

  5. Keep in the fridge and consume within 3-5 days once opened.

It really is that simple to create your own ketchup!
