Chef Tom shares two unique recipes for How to Make Ketchup; Classic Ketchup made from canned tomatoes and Fire Roasted Habanero Ketchup with fresh tomatoes and a fiery kick!


Classic Ketchup & Fire Roasted Habanero Ketchup


Yield: 2 cups each

Ingredients

For the Classic Ketchup:

 

For the Fire Roasted Habanero Ketchup:

  • 2 lb tomatoes
  • 2 cups white vinegar
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/4 small yellow onion
  • 1 tbsp Jacobsen Salt Co. Kosher Sea Salt
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed
  • 3 habanero peppers, chopped
  • 1 tbsp pickling spice

 

Pickling Spice:

  • 1 tbsp coriander seeds
  • 1 tbsp black peppercorns
  • 1 tbsp mustard seeds
  • 1 tbsp red chile flakes
  • 1 tbsp allspice berries
  • 1 tbsp whole cloves
  • 1 tbsp juniper berries
  • 1 tsp ground mace
  • 1 small cinnamon stick, crushed
  • 4 bay leaves, broken into pieces

 

Instructions

For the Pickling Spice:

Preheat a 12” Lodge cast iron skillet over medium heat. Toast the coriander, peppercorns and mustard seeds just until fragrant. Be careful not to burn them. Place the spices in a cloth napkin. Fold the napkin over the spices, and crack the spices by smashing them with a meat mallet, heavy skillet or rolling pin. Combine the toasted spices with the remaining spices. Store in a sealed container.

 

For the Classic Ketchup:

Combine the Ciao Whole Peeled Italian Tomatoes, vinegar, sugar, onion, Jacobsen Salt Co. Kosher Sea Salt and garlic in the pitcher of the Vitamix Blender. Blend until smooth. Transfer to an enameled dutch oven.

 

Place the pickling spice on cheesecloth. Wrap the cheesecloth around the pickling spice and tie with kitchen twine. Add the sachet of pickling spice to the sauce.

 

Bring the sauce to a simmer. Simmer until thickened and reduced down to two cups.

Remove from the heat. Transfer the ketchup to a container and chill in the refrigerator.

 

For the Fire Roasted Habanero Ketchup:

Light a charcoal chimney starter filled with lump charcoal. Let burn until red-hot. Dump the chimney into the charcoal grate of the Yoder Smokers Adjustable Flat Top Charcoal Grill. Slide a cooking grate over the charcoal and raise the charcoal to the highest setting to get it as close to the grate as possible.

 

Place the whole tomatoes directly over the charcoal, as well as the onion quarter. Grill until charred on all sides. Remove from the grill.
