What reeeeaaallllyyy pissed me off last time I went to the store was the price of catsup.


  • #10 can of tomato sauce from Costco
  • 12 oz can of tomato paste
  • 1/3 cup molasses
  • 1/2 cup cane sugar
  • 4 cups chopped onions,
  • 1/2 cups balsamic vinegar
  • 1 cup white vinegar
  • 4 tablespoons garlic powder
  • 2 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 teaspoon whole allspice
  • 1 teaspoon mace
  • 2 teaspoon cloves
  • 3 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1-1/2 teaspoon dry mustard
  • 1 teaspoon Cayenne
  • 4 tablespoons salt

Puree peppers and onions, combine with tomato sauce and paste, and pour into a large stainless steel or enameled kettle. Cook and stir occasionally over low heat

Meanwhile put garlic, pepper, allspice, cloves, cinnamon, and cayenne into the vinegar in a small pot and simmer covered for 1/2 hour to steep spices in the vinegar. Pour the spiced vinegar into the stuff.


Also add molasses, sugar, mustard, and salt at this point.

Bring it up to a boil real slow, I keep my electric stove on 2.

Pour into jars fresh outta the dishwasher with an inch of head space. Process in a pressure cooker by bringing the pressure cooker up to 10 lbs pressure and then turning the heat off and leaving on the burner. This will allow you a good twenty minutes of boiling time, which for something this acidic is plenty

Tastes damn good on taters too!
