Any Kitchen Will Do

Give me a kitchen and I will cook.


Is it Catsup or Ketchup? I don’t know the difference, but I do know that both of them are red, slightly tangy dipping sauces that are mostly tomato. A while back we had a house full of young people over and fed them burgers, hot dogs and home fries. Our household rarely uses ketchup, so we don’t usually have any around. Ack! No red stuff in the fridge! We got some wide-eyed looks when we declared the absence of the condiment. Instead of running to the store and leaving Big D to host our guests while simultaneously grilling meat, I dove into our pantry and attempted to make a batch of ketchup. With tomato paste as a base it was easy to combine some spices and vinegar to come up with a pretty darned good version. It seemed to do the trick and the party continued without a hitch. I will definitely make this again, and even eat some! Read the preparation instructions carefully. It is easy to get lost in all the steps…

Quick Ketchup

6 ounces tomato paste
¼ cup white vinegar
1 Tbsp garlic powder
1 Tbsp onion powder
Dash allspice
1 tsp salt
1 tsp honey
½ cup water

Combine all ingredients together very thoroughly. Serve.
