Why, do you ask, am I making ketchup at home? Well, Michael goes through the stuff like water. A typical-sized ketchup bottle is considered two servings in our house. It's not that that is a problem except for the sugar content - geez! I hated to see him consume such great amounts of sugar and I thought I could probably make a cheaper, more flavorful version. So after years of researching online, testing and adjusting, I give you my personal ketchup recipe. Michael calls it "tomato chutney," but really it's just plain 'ole ketchup with some spiced-up kick.This recipe was also my first "break" into the food biz. Check me out on Chow.com.

    Kitty,

    Thanks for your note! Well, it doesn't last long in our fridge, but usually what I do is fill up one or two ketchup containers and then freeze the rest. That seems to keep it fresh. Enjoy!

    Best,
    Adrienne

    Fabulous! I saw this on Chow Tips and had to come over and see the recipe here. My youngest daughter could be your Michael, she consumes it constantly, and Heinz is her favourite. She can tell if I substitute out another brand, so, we'll see how she likes this, I'll have her help me make it, then she'll "own" it!
    How long would you say this can last in the fridge? Have you tried freezing it?
    Thanks for the great recipes!
