Last, but certainly not least in the recap of preservapalooza...Red Pepper Ketchup!
Then, they got added to all of this stuff, cooked for a bit and then pureed.
At this point they cooked and cooked until they turned into the most fabulous ketchup ever made. I don't think I will ever enjoy supermarket ketchup again after tasting this stuff. I must make more! If you would like to make some, you can find the recipe here or in the book Put 'em Up. I direct you to the recipe because it is not likely I will be sharing this stuff :)
And, so this ends the recap of last weekend's preserving madness. But, guess what?! I took tomorrow off from work and I'm going to be making a bunch more things this weekend! I told you I had a huge list and that thing isn't going to finish itself.
I am simultaneously ecstatic about all of these great ingredients and delicious recipes, while also looking forward to when I can just relax and knit and eat all of these goodies while it snows outside. I guess it is a good thing to live in a climate where the seasons regulate the crazy canning and preserving instincts with a blanket of snow.
