An abundance of garden ripe tomatoes is the key ingredient. This homemade ketchup is well worth your time and minimal effort!
- 2 Tablespoons (30 ml) extra virgin olive oil
- 1 (115 g) medium yellow onion, 4 ounces, peeled and roughly chopped
- 3 pounds (1.3 kg) ripe tomatoes, cored and roughly chopped

- In a large saucepan with a heavy bottom, add the olive oil and heat over medium low heat.

- Add the chopped tomatoes (including all juice and seeds), brown sugar, vinegar, salt, dry mustard, celery salt, garlic powder, ground cloves, and allspice to the onions. Stir well to combine.
- Bring the mixture to a boil and then reduce the heat to a simmer.

- Select Variable 1.
- Turn machine on and slowly increase speed to Variable 10, then to High.
- Blend for 30 seconds.
- Taste and add more salt if desired.
- Pour the mixture into an airtight container and keep in the refrigerator for up to 3 weeks.

Can this recipe be used if I want to can my ketchup? How much canning salt would I need to add?
This recipe was not meant for canning or jarring. If you normally can or jar your homemade ketchup, you will want to follow your regular procedure and adjust the recipe as you normally would. You can also try the traditional water bath canning or jarring method.
