HOMEMADE KETCHUP – Easy, Healthy and Delicious
- 1 can 400gr plum tomatoes
- 2 tbsp honey
- 2 tbsp white vinegar
- ¼ tsp Himalayan salt
- ¼ tsp black pepper
- ¼ optional chilli flakes for a spicier version
- 1 tsp cornflour
- ¼ cup cold water
In a small saucepan: cook plum tomatoes, honey, vinegar, salt and pepper. Let the salsa simmer and stir now and then at low heat for about 5-10 minutes until it is getting more concentrated.
Remove the pot from the heat and blend the mixture with a hand blender. Put the pureed ketchup back on the fire.
Mix the corn starch with cold water and add to the pot, let cook for an additional 10 to 15 minutes.
As the ketchup reaches a creamy consistency, press it through a strainer into a bowl to filter the seeds and skins.
Pour the ketchup in a jar.
Enjoy! Keep in the fridge for up to three days.
