Heirloom Tomato Ketchup

    Worthy of a Special Occasion

    This is a great change from the store-bought bottled stuff with loads of HFCS. I didn't have fresh tomatoes on-hand so I used 2 cans of Muir Glen organic tomato sauce. Also, rather than steep whole spices I ground them up in a spice grinder and added them directly to the sauce. I ended up with a greater volume (2 1/2 c?) once it seemed cooked down sufficiently, but the flavor seemed about right. One additional tablespoon of sugar (granulated honey rather) made it perfect. I used some immediately in CL Plum Barbecue Sauce, and the rest I funneled it into two empty 8-oz. plastic soda bottles for my own "squeeze bottles". Burgers, fries...look out!
