FRUIT: 4 quarts of celebrity tomato puree
SOURCE: CSA farm
RECIPE: based on this recipe but with 1.25 T salt, .5 T celery seed, and 1.25 c sugar. I pureed the tomatoes in the food processor and then cooked them all with the vegetables before I pureed them more with the immersion blender. Then I sent it through the food grinder. I also did the second reduction on the stove, I think the crockpot is a good idea but I already had a dirty pot so why dirty the crockpot too?
YIELD: 3 pints
TASTE: good, I did a side-by-side with the commercial ketchup and I think next time I’ll use less celery seed
