Homemade Tomato Catsup

Written by Paulo Martirez on Wednesday, January 16, 2008

As a child, I've always loved the taste of tomato catsup. Now I will show you a recipe of this tasty tomato product.

• 1/2 teaspoon Pepper (powdered) 1/2 quart Vinegar
• 1/2 teaspoon Cloves (powdered) 4 cups Sugar
• 1/2 teaspoon Allspice (powdered) 1/2 teaspoon Cinnamon (powdered)
• Tomato according to pulp needed

(All spice and the rest of the spices are wrapped in a small cloth bag).


1. Ripe fleshy red tomatoes are used. They are washed thoroughly, cut into halves (crosswise). The seeds are separated, the pulp is cut into convenient pieces. It is strained and the seeds are discarded.

2. The juice is mixed with the pulp. It is cooked in an enameled kettle, stirring now and then until the thin peelings have been separated and have rolled. It is then removed from the fire.

3. The whole mixture is now strained through a metal strainer, preferably copperwire strainer, or better still, a coarse bamboo basket (with small holes), and all the pulp let to pass through.

4. The pulp is measured. To every 4 quarts of the pulp the above items are added. The resulting mixture is put in a kettle (enameled), boiled, stirring constantly to avoid scorching until the right consistency for catsup is reached.

5. The mixture is then poured into bottles, sterilized and covered tightly.
