Old Fashioned Homemade Ketchup


  • 48 medium tomatoes - about 8 lbs
  • 2 ripe, sweet red peppers
  • 2 sweet green peppers
  • 4 onions
  • 3 cups white vinegar
  • Ad
  • 3 cups sugar
  • 3 Tbsp. salt
  • 1 1/2 tsp. allspice
  • 3 tsp. dry mustard
  • 1 1/2 tsp. cloves
  • 1 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp. hot red pepper


Cut the tomatoes into quarters removing stem ends. Remove seeds from the peppers and cut them into strips. Peel onions and cut in eighths. Fill blender about 3/4 full with vegetables. Blend at high speed for 4 seconds. Pour into a large kettle. Repeat the blending process until all vegetables are blended.

Add vinegar, sugar, and spices (spices should be tied in thin muslin bag) to blended vegetables. Simmer uncovered in slow oven or electric saucepan until volume is reduced one half. Remove the bag of spices. Pour into hot sterilzed jars and seal immediately. Makes about 5 pints.
