Tomato Ketchup



Select good red ripe tomatoes. Cut off blemishes and slice. Heat tomato pieces after slightly crushing them without adding any water. Allow to boil for 5 minutes. Let cool. Pulp the cooled tomato pieces in a blender and grind them. Strain through a fine siever to remove seeds and skin. Add all spices to pulp. Boil so as to reduce quantity to a third of the original volume. Add vinegar, sugar and salt and heat till further reduced to a third of the quantity. Add sodium benzoate dissolved in water when warm. Bottle while hot. Let cool and store.
