Sun-Dried Tomato Ketchup

Sun-Dried Tomato Ketchup

This ketchup gets its richness from the sun-dried tomatoes and soaking liquid. Use it to perk up hamburgers, or to baste grilled chicken or pork.

  • Yield: 3 cups (serving size: 1 tablespoon)


  • 3 cups sun-dried tomato halves, packed without oil (about 7 1/2 ounces)
  • 4 cups boiling water
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 1/2 cups chopped onion
  • 1 none garlic clove, minced
  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 3 tablespoons dark brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon tomato paste
  • 1 teaspoon salt


Cover sun-dried tomatoes with 4 cups boiling water in a bowl; let stand 30 minutes or until soft.

Heat oil in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Add onion and garlic; sauté 4 minutes or until onion is tender. Place tomato mixture, onion mixture, vinegar, sugar, paste, and salt in a blender; process until smooth. Place pureed tomato mixture in pan. Bring to a simmer over medium heat; partially cover, reduce heat, and simmer 30 minutes, stirring occasionally. Chill thoroughly.

Note: Store in refrigerator for up to a week.
