Title: Heinz Tomato Sauce/Ketchup - secret recipe adaption
Post by: squirrel on May 18, 2012, 07:08:09 am
For all you tomato sauce lovers, make your own tomato sauce at home, that tastes just like the one Heinz one.  I have tried hard with other sauces, but DH is addicted to the bottled stuff.. so I searched out a recipe that tastes exactly  the same and I have adapted for other addicts.  There could probably be healthier variations to this recipe, but have left as is for the hard core lovers of the bottle stuff  :o

Ingredients:

170 gr Tomato Paste
1/3 cup honey
1/2 cup white vinegar
1/4 water
4 TBLsp sugar
1 tsp salt
1/4 tsp onion powder
1/8 tsp garlic powder

Method:

Place all ingredients in the thermomix and blend on speed 4 for 20 secs.
Cook on 100 degrees for 10 mins, speed 1
Reduce temperature to 80 degrees and cook another 10 mins, speed 1
Leave to cool in thermomix with lid on

When cool, pour into jars/containers and refridgerate.
Makes about 1.5 cups.

My kids love their tomato sauce, would be great to make it myself without all the preservatives. :)
They don't like my homemade tomato sauce and relish so this could be the way to go. Thanks for that.

THis would be great and have to try it when we run out.

How long would it keep for do you think?

I just brought a 4 liter bottle of sauce. But once that's close to finished I will give this a try.
Should last ok with vinegar in it. Probably a few weeks (3-6) at a guess.

I have made a few more test batches in consultation with the world expert tomato sauce taste tester (DH).  I have adjusted the recipe slightly (adjustments made in original).  I have reduced the amount of honey and increased the sugar slightly. 
He was rapped with the last batch so I may have conquered the mountain and made it to the summit  LOL   ;)

We are happy when we get to the summit squirrel - especially if we have tried a recipe several times to get it just right.  Good for you for persevering until DH gave it the thumbs up.

How would you go when starting with fresh tomatoes instead of tomato paste? I can not have processed tomatoes in my diet due to allergy

Stef, see the link for MJ's tomato passata (http://www.forumthermomix.com/index.php?topic=2193.0) - read all the postings and you will come across one which was inadvertently turned into tomato paste.

i tried another ketchup recipe from the forum here, but the cinnamon taste is just a big too much.

i dried some unions a while ago and can cook down some tomatoes to make tomato paste any time i can find the time..
so i definitely will try this.. just one other question.. why let it cool in the bowl with the lid on? i would expect you want to thicken it a little by removing the lid ..

This sounds like something my son would appreciate, only my supermarket doesn't sell Garlic or Onion Powder   :-\

Will have to look next time I'm in the 'big city' ..  Thank-You for sharing though!

Trying this tomorrow with super ripe small tomatoes instead of tomatopaste.. I guess the coooking down will take alot longer though.. Any ideas how many i will need compared to the paste and how long i may varoma them?

Awaiting results with interest...... You do the testing while I am away from Thermy for a week, perfect.

Plus have found a supply of reasonable priced tomatoes, as not growing enough to cook with this year.

Keep up the good work.....

Lol that is not advice!  But i will have to try it anyway...   I will start with my original recipe using frsh tomatoes (about 1.5 kilo) and see how much sweet and vinegar i normally use and adopt it from there.. Will post the result if any good in a new post

I need yo go from frsh since i am not allowed to eat industrial canned food

Here it is, my ketchup based on fresh tomatoes, sunriped!

I added some spices, like allspice, dried ginger, mustard flour and cayenne.. Though for me a bit on the sweet side i kept the sugar.. Maybe will do with a bit less next time!

I do reduce more then the original recipe, since the tomatoes are fesh.. I start with a 3 sec, speed 4 blitz so all ingredients fit in the bowl, then 40 minutes varoma speed 2....  Then blitz speed 10 for 90 seconds to make sure the texture is ok..  And then go back to varoma (always with basket) for 15 to 30 minutes to get the right thickness(http://img.tapatalk.com/5ee25f6e-dfe2-5192.jpg)
Btw this is the result of 3 batches...   Tnx for the recipe!
