Once upon a time, every American cook had a personal recipe for ketchup. This recipe, from VT Executive Chef Ann Gentry, lets you recreate the sweetly-spicy goodness of a homemade condiment.
1. Purée tomatoes and red pepper in food processor until smooth. Set aside.
2. Bring agave nectar to a boil in small saucepan over medium heat. Simmer 5 minutes, or until syrup becomes dark amber color, swirling occasionally to brown evenly. Remove from heat, and stir in onion and garlic. Let stand 2 minutes, or until foaming has subsided. Add tomato-pepper purée and all remaining ingredients. Bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to medium low and simmer, uncovered, 30 minutes or until thickened, stirring occasionally.
3. Purée sauce in food processor or with hand-held immersion blender until smooth. Cool to room temperature before serving or storing in refrigerator.
