Home made ketchup

vegan,gluten free

The more I am learning about food, the warier I am becoming about the staple, supermarket foods we consume daily. A reaction to this is my new homemade ketchup recipe:

Home made ketchup


1 large red onion – peeled and roughly chopped
2cm fresh ginger – peeled and roughly chopped
2 cloves garlic – peeled and sliced
1 teaspoon coriander seeds
1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
500g tinned plum tomatoes
50g tomatoes puree
100ml apple cider vinegar
70g soft brown sugar
1 teaspoon celery salt
1 teaspoon paprika
olive oil


Place red onion and garlic in a heavy – bottomed saucepan with a big splash of olive oil add coriander seeds, black pepper and celery salt. Cook gently over a low heat for 10 to 15 minutes until
softened, stirring every so often. Add all the tomatoes, tomatoes puree and about 300ml cold water. Bring to the boil and simmer gently until the sauce reduces by half.

Whiz the sauce in a food processor or with a hand blender and add vinegar and the sugar. Place the sauce on the heat and simmer until it reduces and thickens to consistency of tomato ketchup. Ad this point, correct the seasoning to taste.
