Have you ever wondered how to make ketchup?
Let’s make some.
It’s actually surprisingly easy. I have seen some of the recipes out there call for it to be cooked for over 8 hours in a slow cooker, which I tested and turns out not to really be necessary. The ketchup I was able to make, not only had the right taste but due to a special ingredient we will add at the end, it also had the same texture as Heinz ketchup.
