Delicious homemade ketchup is so easy to make!
Start by chopping up your tomatoes after you wash them.
Simmer the tomatoes in a saucepan for a few minutes. Mash them up as much as you can.
Add in the salt, onion powder, sugar, and tomato paste and let the mixture bubble together for about a minute.
Remove the mixture from heat and pour into the blender. CAUTION: the mixture is very hot so make sure that you have the lid on tight before you turn it on! Blend until smooth.
Return the mixture to the stove for a little while. It won't be perfectly smooth because of the seeds so if that will be a problem for your family you will want to strain them out.
