Lynn demonstrates how to make homemade ketchup. This is an easy and super delicious. This makes about 5 cups. From Food Network Magazine.
Heat the vegetable oil in a large pot or Dutch oven over medium heat. Add the onion and cook, stirring occasionally, until soft and translucent, about 5 minutes. Stir in the ginger, garlic, mustard powder, allspice and cayenne and cook, stirring for 1 minute. Then add the whole peeled tomatoes and scrape up any browned bits from the bottom of the pot with a wooden spoon; remove from the heat.
Puree the ketchup in batches in a blender until smooth; return to the pot. Add the bay leaves, brown sugar, vinegar, molasses, and salt.
Bring to a simmer over medium-low heat and cook, stirring occasionally to avoid scorching, until very thick, about 1 hour, 45 minutes. Remove the bay leaves and let the ketchup cool. Transfer to an airtight container and refrigerate up to 2 weeks.
