I owe a friend a favor. She asked to be repaid with homemade ketchup. Why not? Well. I'm buying about 25-40 pounds bulk tomatoes that I plan to make into all sorts of excellent tasty things. All the recipes for homemade ketchup I can find all start with tomato paste. I do plan to make tomato paste, that's something I do every year. But is it possible to make homemade ketchup without first making tomato paste? Can I somehow streamline this process? Also, has anyone made ketchup with honey or molasses as the sweetener, so it doesn't have any refined sugar?
