DIRECTIONS

  • Peel and cut the tomatoes in big chunks.
  • Peel, cut the core away and cut the apples in pieces.
  • Slice the celery stalks thinly.
  • Cut the pepper, slice off the seeds and cut in small pieces.
  • Peel the onions and slice them to obtain nice thin slices.
  • Pour the fruit cocktail can through a sieve and keep only the fruits.
  • Put all the ingredients except the fruit cocktail in a big pot, bring to a boil and reduce heat so that it only makes little bubbles (slow to medium-slow heat).
  • For the whole cooking period, put 3 pennies evenly spaced on your burner to avoid the sticking in the bottom of your pot. Also, it is important to stir often: cook for one hour then add the fruit cocktail pieces and cook for another hour. The consistency of the liquid part of this ketchup is similar to a thick syrup and you can verify by putting a spoonful in a cold saucer when near the end of the cooking time.
  • Put in sterilized jars (Mason type) and close the lids.
  • Store in a dark cool place.
