Spicy Chipotle Ketchup

Homemade ketchup made with clean ingredients you can feel good about eating. Last summer I made my own homemade ketchup[1] which turned out so GOOD, I made it again this year… with a twist! I added some chipotle paste to give it some heat, it goes great with turkey burgers or grilled sweet potato fries!

Finally someone came up with a chipotle paste in a tube, perfect since I never use the whole can. The brand is Olo’s[2] which I found on Amazon[3], but of course canned chipotle sauce will work fine here, you’ll have to mince the chipotles. 

This is so EASY to make, just put a few ingredients in the sauce pan and let it simmer for 20 minutes. If you are planning on grilling this weekend and you like things a little spicy, give this a try!

Homemade Ketchup Because You’re Crazy Like That

I want to be very clear that I’m posting this copycat recipe
for ketchup only because I’ve received countless food wishes for it, and not
because I think it’s a great idea. It’s not even a good idea.  

This tweet
I posted yesterday sums things up nicely, 
“Making some homemade ketchup. Sure it costs more, and doesn’t taste as
good as store bought, but at least it takes a really long time to do.”

Of course, we’ve made lots of things that are generally
better not homemade, like French fries and fried chicken, but this is much
different. For most Americans, ketchup is one of our first taste memories, and
if the flavor profile is even the slightest bit off, our brain computes this
as “ketchup fail.”

Having said that, I’m very proud of how close this ketchup
does come to those name brands in terms of taste, texture and color. I’ve never
had a tomato paste-based ketchup that I liked, so I decided to cook down
crushed tomatoes instead. This would require many hours of stirring on the stove, but by using the slow cooker, we take most of the labor out of the
process. Sure itll still take many hours to reduce down to a ketchup, but it
will only require giving it a quick stir every hour or two.

As I joke about in the video (not really a joke), you’d have to be
crazy to make your own ketchup, but despite my warnings, I know in my heart
that many of you will give this a try nonetheless, and that makes me happy. Enjoy!

Ingredients to make 3 cups of Ketchup:
2 cans (28-oz) ground tomatoes (you can also used crushed,
or just crush whole plum tomatoes)
2/3 cups white sugar
3/4 cup white distilled vinegar
1 teaspoon onion powder (not salt!)
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder (not salt!)
1 3/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon celery salt
1/8 teaspoon mustard powder
1/4 tsp finely ground black pepper
1 whole clove
* Cook on the high setting in an uncovered slow cooker until
the mixture is reduced by about half and very thick. By the way, my “high”
setting isn’t very high, so it took like 10 hours, but don’t rely on a time.
Simply cook until it looks like mine did before I strained it.
