Jamie's Green Tomato Ketchup
Jamie Oliver's Tomato Ketchup
1 large red onion, peeled and roughly chopped
1/2 bulb fennel, trimmed and roughly chopped
1 stick celery, trimmed and roughly chopped
Thumb-sized piece fresh ginger, peeled and roughly chopped
2 cloves garlic, peeled and sliced
1/2 a fresh red chili, deseeded and finely chopped
Bunch fresh basil, leaves picked, stalks chopped
1 tablespoon coriander seeds
1 tsp freshly ground black pepper
1 pound amazing allotment tomatoes (red, orange, yellow or even green), chopped
1 pound tinned tomatoes, chopped
3/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
1/3 cup soft brown sugar
1. Place all the veg in a large heavy-bottomed saucepan with a big splash of olive oil and the ginger, garlic, chili, basil stalks, coriander seeds and cloves.
2. Season with the pepper and a good pinch of salt.
3. Cook gently over a low heat for 10 - 15 mins until softened, stirring every so often.
4. Add all the tomatoes and 11/2 cups of cold water. Bring to the boil and simmer gently until the sauce reduces by half.
5. Add basil, then whiz the sauce in a food processor or with a hand blender and push it through a sieve twice, to make it smooth and shiny.
6. Put the sauce into a clean pan, add vinegar and sugar.
7. Place the sauce on the heat and simmer until it reduces and thickens to the consistency of tomato ketchup. At this point, correct the seasoning to taste.
8. Spoon the ketchup through a sterilised funnel into sterilised bottles, then seal tightly and place in a cool dark place or the refrigerator until needed - it should keep for 6 months.
Tips on Sterilising Jars
Properly-handled sterilised equipment will keep canned foods in good condition for years. Sterilising jars is the first step of preserving foods.
Jars should be made from glass and free of any chips or cracks. To sterilise jars, wash jars and lids with hot, soapy water. Rinse well and arrange jars and lids open sides up, without touching, on a tray.
Leave in a preheated 175 degree F oven for 25 mins. Or, boil the jars and lids in a large saucepan, covered with water, for 15 minutes.
Use tongs (sterilise by dipping in boiling water) when handling the hot jars.
As a rule, hot preserves go into hot jars and cold preserves go into cold jars. All items used in the process of making jams, jellies, and preserves must be clean. This includes any towels used, and especially your hands.
