Tomato Ketchup Recipe

My most favourite accompaniment to air fried chips made with chunky cut Maris Piper potatoes sprayed with a very light coating of cold pressed rape seed oil.   Yes, you can have healthy chips, only use cold pressed rape and don’t go overboard with it, you only need a very light sprayed coating if you use an air fryer.

A super delicious, super healthy, tomato ketchup.

Into a 900ml blender cup place:

80g     Filtered or Bottled Spring Water
250g     Tomatoes (replace 150g with tinned toms for a more tommy taste)
10g     Apple Cider Vinegar
30g     Currants
50g     Celery
20g     Onion
10g     Fresh Ginger
10g     Garlic
50g     Orange
0.7g     Black Peppercorns
0.7g     Whole Dried Chilli
2g     Coriander Seeds
1g     Cumin Seeds
2g     Dried Sage
0.5g     Dried Thyme
1.2g     Star Anise
1.2g     Fennel Seeds
3g     Smoked Paprika
1.5g     Paprika
2.5g     Whole Flax Seeds
2.5g     Whole Chia Seeds

Wherever possible always use whole spices as they’re living seeds and super healthy, the blender will take care of them.   For making good home mixed herb and spice recipes you’ll need something to weigh 0.1g increments.

If you use standard mains water it’s not gonna taste as good.   Seriously people, stop drinking mains water and using it in cooking, it isn’t healthy and tastes shite.

Give it all a good whizz around.

Sooooo much nicer tasting and infinitely more healthy than bottled junk-food ketchup.
