This is a great recipe and its so simple to make, if you knock up a decent sized batch and freeze some you will have some quality ketchup, which taste better than any of the big brands and cost less by a golden mile too.
- 4 good-size onions, very roughly chopped
- 250g celery, very roughly chopped
- 5 tbsp vegetable or olive oil
- 4 garlic cloves, sliced
- 1 tsp ground coriander
- 1 short cinnamon stick
- 1 tsp allspice
- ½ tsp ground black pepper
- 2 tsp celery
- 2kg ripe tomatoes, roughly chopped
- 3 tbsp tomato purée
- ½ tsp Tabasco sauce
- 200ml white wine vinegar
- 200g golden caster sugar
Put the onions and celery into a food processor and whizz until finely chopped. Heat the oil in a very large saucepan, add the onions and celery, cover, then soften over a low heat for 5 mins. Add the garlic, cook 5 mins more, then tip in the spices and cook for 1 min.
