#Vegan Smokey Garlic Ketchup
The base for this ketchup comes from one of my favourite books The Homemade Vegan Pantry – which provides great basic recipes and also explains the science behind store cupboard staples.
I was surprised how incredibly easy and fast it is to make ketchup – I’m a complete convert to the homemade version.
The Basic Ketchup
1 1/3 cups tomato paste
2/3 cup water
1/3 cup apple cider vinegar
1/4 cup sugar
2 teaspoons sea salt
Adjust the following items to taste, or add your own combination of flavours
2 cloves garlic, peeled and crushed
1 1/2 teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoon chilli flakes
Splash of Ale
Bowl and spoon (or food processor)
Funnel (not necessary but handy)
Put all of the ingredients into a bowl or food processor. Stir/mix well until combined, and the sugar and salt have dissolved.
Funnel the liquid into the sterilised jar and keep in the fridge.
