This homemade ketchup really comes close to those branded ones in terms of taste and texture. It is especially wonderful because it is made out of fresh recipe tomatoes and not even canned. Most people think that it is very difficult and takes a lot of time to make your own ketchup but the opposite is actually true.

A pressure cooker eliminates a huge chunk of time. It takes less than an hour from start to finish and totally worth it! You don't even need to do anything for most of that time. The only task which is a bit tiresome is straining the tomato mixture to remove the seeds and skin. You need to do this in batches so that it strains easily.

In my opinion, the flavour of homemade ketchup is superior to store bought. I can happily eat this by the spoonful and watch my children relish every bit without wondering about their sugar intake.

You need to store this in a glass bottle because tomatoes are acidic so plastic bottles are a definite no. It will last for anywhere between 3 and 4 weeks in the fridge so you can make a large batch and enjoy it slowly.
