[Food] Ketchup!.....No,seriously......Ketchup!

So a couple of weeks ago Mrs Icky and I were planning burgers for dinner when we learned there wasnt a drop of ketchup in the house and neither of us was ambitious enough to go buy some. Before I could stop myself I heard the words...."Fine! Ill make some!" escape my big mouth. Mrs Icky of course replied....." Oh sure you will!". Challenge Accepted! I searched around for some basic recipes online and found the most generally accepted basics of homemade ketchup and got at it. Played with it a little bit,added more of this and that(made it spicy/hot) and came up with a darn good result which everyone loved and was dead easy to make. Basic recipe follows....

2 (6oz) cans tomato Paste
1/2 cup white vinegar
1 rounded Tbs garlic powder
1 rounded Tbs onion powder
4 Tbs brown sugar
1 Tsp salt
2 1/2 cups water

Put it all in a saucepan,bring to a slow boil,reduce the heat and simmer to desired thickness,stirring occasionally,for about an hour?Cool and store in the fridge.

The basic recipe tastes alot like Heinz brand but I added a bit extra garlic,onion and chinese style hot chili sauce.

Family dinner tonight and burgers again so Im making more. This time a garlic and rosemary ketchup and a curry flavored batch as well. Smells awesome and will hopefully be a hit with the guests. Got some other ideas for next time including a smoky bacon flavored one!

Next up.....Mustard!

YUUUUUUUP!! Mustard is a must.

My wife makes ketchup often because while we don't use it often, our grandkids do. We are often in a bind of needing it and having none on hand. It is my humble opinion that my wife's concoction beats all brands.

That does look pretty easy, (and good)!

I've made my own BBQ sauce. Made my own Tempura and Pancake batter, (almost the same)

Never tried my own Ketchup. Now, I jus' might have to try.

EDIT: When my thumb starts workin' better.
Thanx Ick!

It really is good. The 2 I made yesterday came out excellent and really changes up the taste with a burger and fries. Also,its fairly inexpensive and definitely cheaper than off the shelf ketchup. 2 cans of tomato paste are under a buck and the rest of the ingredients most people with a decently stocked kitchen will have on hand.

I prefer Hunt's, but I think I'm gonna give Cory's a shot.

Problem with garlic powder, it always turns into a brick on me, I can only buy garlic salt...

Try granulated garlic. You don't want to use garlic salt since that will lead to over-salted food.
