Another Homemade Ketchup Recipe

I got this recipe off of the Aspiring Homemaker's Blog. It looks similar to mine, but doesn't require whey.

Homemade Ketchup

4 (6 oz) cans of tomato paste
2 cups water
3/4 cup vinegar
7 Tbsp sucanat
3 garlic cloves
4 tsp kosher salt
1 tsp onion powder
Warm the paste in a large saucepan, then you add the water a little at a time. Dump in the rest of the ingredients, and you've made BETTER-than-store bought Ketchup!!

Do you know if you have to refrigerate this? Im looking for an easy canned homemade ketchup recipe- so I dont have to take up valuable fridge space!

I understand what you're saying. I have a very small fridge as well. I would keep it in the fridge because it could grow mold very quickly since there aren't any preservatives in it. However, what I do is freeze it in smaller increments so that I'm not taking up much fridge space. Hope that helps!

heh - I have more fridge space than I do freezer space! (between whole cows, whole pigs, lots of chickens and freezer meals all FOUR of the freezers are full... and there's just something satisfying about being able to make a years worth at a time... but maybe I can try it anyhow! thanks

How long does this recipe keep in the fridge?

I've had mine in the fridge for several months before it started growing, Kate. It lasts a long time because of the vinegar in it.
