Ingredients You'll Need

2 tablespoons pickling spices
10 large ripe tomatoes (about five pounds), peeled and coarsely chopped (see Note)
2 large onions, peeled and thinly sliced
2 celery ribs with leaves, chopped
1 cup distilled white vinegar
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
3/4 cup (packed) light brown sugar


Wrap the pickling spices in a square of rinsed cheesecloth.

Place the tomatoes in a large pot along with the pickling spices, onions, celery, vinegar, cloves, and ginger.

Bring to a boil and cook for 1 hour.

Add the brown sugar and cook for 2 1/2 hours, stirring often, until the ketchup thickens.

Season to taste with salt.

Remove the bag of pickling spices.

Puree the ketchup in a food processor fitted with the metal blade.

Strain through a wire sieve to remove the seeds.

Return the strained puree to the pot and cook for 15 to 20 minutes.

Pour into a container and refrigerate.
