This is the first in a four part series on Inception Cooking. The first layer – making my own ketchup.
The recipe called for a slow cooker. I had a pot. Same principle.
Recipe calls for straining it, after a quick immersion blend. I did so, but I don’t think it was worth the effort and mess.
Here’s the result:
Difficulty: low-medium (Takes frequent attention [on the stove], and messy to clean up)
Cost: low-medium (Have to buy a lot of spices if you don’t have them. Though fresh ingredients would also work)
Time: High (3-4 hours)
Pros: Quite tasty, less plastic, avoid high fructose corn syrup
Cons: Time consuming and messy
Future Implementation: Yes. Next time, probably a double batch and with a slow cooker. No need to strain. Maybe reduce sugar a little bit.
