The 5-Step Recipe For Making Homemade Ketchup Is Easier Than You Think

Get ready to toss the ketchup that's been in your fridge for the past few months. YouTuber Dave Hax released a video last week showing us how to make a homemade version of everyone's favorite condiment, and things might never be the same.

Using an onion, brown sugar, some tomato paste and a few more ingredients, you'll be able to whip up homemade ketchup just in time for grilling season. Here's how Hax makes it:

Step 1: Cut a small onion in half.

Step 2: Put one heaping tablespoon of brown sugar into a cup, then fill it up halfway with hot water to dissolve the sugar.

Step 3: Once the water cools, add half of the onion (use the other half for something else). Use a hand blender to blend until it's smooth.

Step 4: Empty a 200 gram jar of tomato paste (about 7 ounces) into a bowl. Add 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves, 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon, 1/4 spoonful salt and 1/2 teaspoon mustard.

Step 5: Add 3 tablespoons of white vinegar and the sugar and onion mix from above. Whisk it together and voila! Homemade ketchup.
