  1. Begin making your homemade ketchup by combining all the ingredients in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat and whisk to blend ingredients until smooth.
  2. Bring mixture to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer, stirring frequently and scraping around sides of the saucepan with a spatula.
  3. Simmer until desired thickness is achieved (could take about 20-25 minutes or more).
  4. Remove from heat and allow to cool.
  5. Transfer to a jar, cap tightly, and refrigerate.


In the fridge, this ketchup will last at least a month (ours has lasted much longer). You can preserve this recipe using the hot water bath method, just boil for 15-20 minutes.
