Homemade tomato sauce (ketchup)

Author: Katerina | Once a Foodie


  • 700 ml bottle of organic passata
  • 28 ml organic apple cider vinegar
  • 84 ml honey
  • 1/4 + 1/8 tsp mixed spice


  • Place all the ingredients into a pot with high sides and stir to combine.
  • Bring the mixture to a boil over medium heat.
  • Once it starts boiling, cover the pot with a lid and turn the temperature down slightly.
  • Simmer over medium heat for about 12 minutes until nice and thick.
  • You can then add more water and let it simmer a little longer to give it a deeper flavour (I don't do this).
  • Leave to cool and store in a glass jar in your fridge.
