Folks just love their ketchup. Whether it’s for fries, hashbrowns or barbecues, there’s always a bottle in the refrigerator. Next time you find yourself in need of this essential condiment, use our simple recipe to make this version at home.

We like our this recipe spicy, so we’ve added one of our favorite blends to it. Berbere is most commonly used in North African stews or roasted meats, but it has an affinity for ketchup. We like to keep some on hand all summer for dipping fries, topping burgers and hot dogs, or to use as a “secret ingredient” in BBQ sauces.

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Pulse garlic and onion in a food processor until finely chopped.
  2. Heat oil in a deep saucepan over medium heat. Add onion and garlic, and sauté until lightly browned. Add the remaining of the ingredients and cook until ketchup is thickened, stirring occasionally. Taste for seasoning and remove from heat.
  3. **Decision time.** You can leave the texture “rustic” or you can puree it smoother in a blender.
  4. Allow to cool, and transfer to a container for storage.

Notes

If you puree the ketchup, make sure the center plug has been removed from the blender's lid and carefully hold a folded towel to cover the hole.
