Ever wonder what in the world happened to my homemade ketchup making experiments? Yeah, me too.
I’ve told you several different times that I was experimenting with a good ketchup recipe. Many of you have sent me wonderful looking recipes. And still…I have nothing to share with you. I figured I should at least offer a little update, for all of you who have been eagerly sitting there with a hamburger in your hand waiting for me to tell you how to make ketchup to garnish it.
Here’s what happened: I tried two different recipes several months ago. We sort of liked one and really didn’t like the other. I thought maybe after they sat in the fridge a few days, we would like them more, but we didn’t. Then you sent some recipes and they looked really good and I picked out a few to try…but then I never did because there are just SO many things to do and recipes to try and posts to write and children to watch flying off the stair railing.
And so I just keep getting this kind. And I like it. And all it requires is opening a bottle and squeezing.
I make almost everything from scratch. I have decided to give myself a break on the ketchup and buy it for now. Until I can catch-up. I will leave “homemade ketchup” on my list of reader-requested recipes…but for now…if you’re sitting there with your hamburger waiting for the homemade ketchup, I’ll have to apologize and say…go ahead and eat your burger. :( I think that I thought making a tasty homemade ketchup would be easy…and it’s kinda not. I wanted to make it easy for all of us, you know?
On another, happier note though…you know our little corn crop that got pummeled by the wind? You were all right in your comments. It DID perk itself up and we have been able to save most of it!!! We were so excited that Matt did a little corn photography:
The purtiest corn we ever did see.
