Thing is in "The East" they have damaging pests and diseases that haven't come over The Nullabor yet, so we are keen to keep them out. Coddling moth was one such pest. Cane toad another (although we don't want them because of what they do to the environment and native fauna). Hybridisation though is definitely a good thing otherwise.

But like you say, very much off topic.

Yea, but we're HALF on topic. Catsup IS made with tomatoes, right? hehe

That's why I'm wishy washy. It does have it's advantages. The disadvantages are the bugs, etc. We're having a problem in the US now with bees. Or I should probably say, the LACK of them. They are being killed off by bigger bees and by the herbicides, etc etc .. and it wouldn't surprise me that environmental stuff from moving the bees from one state to another is killing them either.

Being one of 8 kids we went through alot of ketshup, so I remenber one year (many moons ago ) My mom decide to take tomatos from the garden and make ketchup. She is a great cook and took on this task. by the time she got done after all day of cooking and come up with about 3 bottles worth in which last about a week that was it she never made it again. We had the Village Priest leave next to us and he was going by smelling it saw mom in the kitchen window and asked her what was smelling so good and she told him making ketchup. He look at her kinda of funny and then gave her a blessing and walked on. Right then she knew she was in trouble, if she needed a blessing. Saw the preist some years later and when we talked he still remembers that day.

I guess I didn't think about the fact that you had to COOK the ketchup. It almost makes it not worth it. hehe I just wanted a little bit. Something maybe I could make once a week. If it's that much trouble tho, it really isn't worth it.

TOMATO CATSUP

Select fine ripe tomatoes, cut all blemishes, also hard parts about the stem end. Then slice them into a kettle filling it full. Add a dash of red pepper and put the kettle over a slow fire to stew, gradually stirring to prevent burning. When reduced by 1/2 of the original quanity strain through a wire sieve. To 5 lbs. of the pulp add 1 1/2 lbs. sugar, 1 pint of Cider vinegar, 1 T. of Cloves, 1 T. Allspice, 2 T. Cinnamon and 1 T. Salt. Put the mixture back over the fire and boil until thickness suits.


Enjoy!!!

Edit...I can't spell. Grrrr!

You know Gossie if you just want to try a small amount and don't want to put much effort into it, I bet there is a microwave recipe out there or can adapt Bob's or someone else's recipe to suit a microwave. Doubt that you could do all of it in there but you could probably speed things along. Purists will hate me I'm sure but.... heh!

Another good idea. :0)

I was thinking about cooking some onions and tomatoes, and using my stick blender. And then maybe adding some vinegar to give it that tang. ok, will shut up now. LOL
