It was like a drug deal, lol. We'd arrange to meet up in the pub, him carrying a small styrofoam cooler, and me with my brown paper bags of tomatoes.

We both walked away thing we got a great deal.
Ah, Bergen County, well known for its illicit fish for produce trade. Seems you were well connected in the "tomato mafia."

I donít mind the occasional recipe that takes a lot of tending!
It was the edition that came out in the 1970s. I had a look at my log. It says I used the recipe in Joy of Cooking.

I do have notes from when I made it a second time. I had a canning party. Got several friends together and we bought canning jars and produce at Jean Talon Market, the big farmer's market in Montreal. I tried taking pix with my camera, but they weren't turning out legible. I'll try again or maybe use the scanner. Got recuperate some spoons first.

I guess you have never tried it with home made ketchup.

About 20 years ago I was in Brisbane with a mate, we had been out and in an area I wasn't familiar with. My mate says here's a pub, let's go have a drink. We went in and never thought anything about the bar until I went to the toilet, it was mixed gender and a manly woman was doing her makeup. I went back to the bar and told my friend, we had walked into a gay bar and never realised. We got talking to a pilot and a few cabin crew guys. 20 years ago this place way ahead of its time. We had s ball and went home after our drinking session.

The girls teased us a bit,lol.

There are so many recipes for ketchup on line. From preparation of five minutes to several hours of low slow cooking. A lot of them five stars.
