Homemade Tomato Ketchup Instructions

This is so simple to make! Tip the contents of the tomato paste can into a bowl and then mix the onion powder with the hot water.
Next, add all the remaining ingredients into the hot water except the vinegar. Use the hot water to rinse out the tomato paste can and add to the bowl.
Add the vinegar to the mix and then stir through thoroughly.
Steve tends to pour the tomato ketchup into a ‘used’ ketchup bottle that has been washed and cleaned thoroughly and then store it in my pantry.
It takes a day or two for the full flavor to develop but this sauce can be used straight away. It will last many months in the pantry.
