This recipe is a keeper in my book! I always been a Heinz only catsup lover and this beats it by far and so much better for you using all organic ingredients. However i did tweet the recipe to my liking. I used only Roma tomatoes, two large onions, 8 cloves of fresh garlic, 3/4 cup organic apple juice that i had already canned, tripled the cayenne pepper, organic apple cider vinegar, celery seed and peppercorns. I kept the whole cloves and bay leaf as is, as they can become overpowering imo. I added 1 cup of fresh homemade maple syrup from this years harvest. I Omitted the lemon juice. Cooked on the stove top for two hours then i put it in a large crock pot with the lid off overnight. It turned out thick and wonderful. Then transferred it to my food processor to smooth all the lumps out. I added 1/8 tsp canning salt to each 1/2 pint jar. Sealed and hot water bathed for 10 min. I will never buy store catsup again! Thank you for sharing this wonderful recipe, can't wait to make it again and again...
