Ingredients
• 1 pouch Mrs. Wages® Ketchup Mix
• 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
• Approximately 6 pounds fresh, fully ripe tomatoes*
• 1 can (6-ounce) tomato paste
• 1 cup Mrs. Wages® Pickling & Canning Vinegar or other
   commercial white vinegar (5% acidity)

*Note: If fresh tomatoes are not available, use 3 quarts of
home-canned tomatoes and omit cooking for 25 minutes.
For smoother ketchup, use 5 pints of a good quality,
no-salt-added canned tomato juice and omit cooking for 25 minutes.
Instructions
1. Combine Mrs. Wages® Ketchup Mix and sugar in a small bowl.
    Mix well. Set aside.

2. Wash tomatoes carefully. Quarter tomatoes and remove cores. Place
    in a large saucepan, crushing one layer at a time with a potato
    masher. Bring crushed tomatoes to boil, stirring frequently. Boil
    gently for 25 minutes.

3. Press tomatoes through a food mill to separate skins and seeds from
    juice and pulp. Measure 5 pints (10 cups) juice into 5-quart
    saucepan. Stir in tomato paste and vinegar. Boil for 20 minutes,
    stirring frequently.  Remove from heat. Slowly add sugar/ketchup
    seasoning mixture to hot juice, stirring constantly until dry
    ingredients are uniformly dispersed. Return to heat and boil gently
    for 5 minutes. Crush any small starch clumps with a spoon against
    the side of saucepan.

4. To freeze, pour into freezer containers and let cool. Store covered in
    freezer up to 1 year. Pour boiling hot ketchup into clean, hot pint or
    half-pint canning jars, leaving 1/2-inch headspace. Wipe rim clean
    and adjust lids. Process for 40 minutes in boiling water bath. Boiling
    water should cover jars by 1-inch.  Covered canner should be left on
    high heat during processing.

5. Test jars for airtight seal 12 to 24 hours after processing. If jars are
    not properly sealed, refrigerate and use within a week. Label and
    store in a cool, dry, dark place. Ketchup is ready to eat after 24
    hours.
