Mom canned a lot of tomatoes, made tomato juice and then she made ketchup. Bubba reminded me of how much he likes homemade ketchup and that I haven’t made it in a long while. So, yesterday I made ketchup. The aroma of it cooking is unbelievable, very spicy and good.
I let it cook down until it was very thick, mainly because Bill likes it thick, not “runny” like Mom made it. If you don’t want it so thick, cook a shorter period of time and you will have a higher yield. Another good thing is that you know exactly what is in it, no preservatives!
