Homemade ketchup

DSC_0062What ? You want to do your own ketchup ? Homemade ? But it’s exactly because the Heinz Ketchup has the taste it has that we buy it.

Here, I have to admit that I’m doing this recipe just for the pleasure of trying : I don’t have too high expectations on the final result…

Especially since I read on the internet that Heinz is actually growing a type of tomato developed to be used in their ketchup. EXCLUSIVELY.

Now that I know that, all my dreams of threatening from my small kitchen ta major international food company business are fadingaway. Too bad.

So I took from my fridge and my cupboard what I could reasonably find there, which is : 

DSC_0047A box of cherry tomatoes
1 small red onion
1 tablespoon oil
1 tablespoon vider vinegar
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1 tablespoon tomato puree
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 tablespoon paprika
1 tablespoon 5 spoces
1 tablespoon water (optional)
Salt and pepper

I washed and chopped the tomatos  in 4 and chopped the onion finely. I fried them in the oil then added all the other ingredients and left them to stew for one hour on mild heat. Use the water to dilute the sauce if the onions are still too hard. The juice of the tomatos must have disappeared and the onions must be soft. I mixed it all very finely and let it to cool in the pan. I poured it in a jam jar to keep it for 24h in the fridge before use.

The taste has in the end not much to do with the Heinz Ketchup of course but it is a very nice sauce, very perfumed and reasonably sweet : I can’t wait to to test it with some good french fries !

How do you think you could threaten a major international food company from your kitchen ?
