Run out of ketchup?
Before you make a dash for the supermarket, here is my simple (no cooking) recipe using just a handful of good ingredients. You can make it in minutes (that includes taking the ingredients out of the cupboard) and it will keep in the fridge for several days.
Quick & Simple Ketchup Recipe
150mls (or about 1 cup) of Organic Passata
2 Tblspn Organic Tomato Purée
1 Tbspn balsamic vinegar or cider vinegar for a softer flavour
2 Tspn Organic Agave syrup (or your preferred sweetener)
1/4 – 1/2 Tspn Himalayan fine Pink Salt to taste
1/4 Tspn organic Fairtrade black pepper (ground)
For a little kick. . .
1/4 Tspn Smoked paprika if you have it, but not essential
Mix the agave syrup, vinegar and seasoning together
Add the tomato purée and mix to a smooth paste
Add the passata a few tablespoons at a time and mix thoroughly.
If you use regular sugar, it may need to be heated slightly with the vinegar over a low heat until dissolved. Take off the heat and add the other ingredients as directed above. Allow to cool.
Store in the fridge in an air tight tub.
There you have it.
It tastes great and can be made in an instant.
