Heinz Tomato Sauce/Ketchup - secret recipe adaption
« 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.

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.

Good luck Fundj.  My DH was impressed, but it was like presenting a taste test to a  world food critic.  LOL    ;)
