Full of flavour this ketchup sauce will be great on home-cooked burgers! Store in an airtight container in the fridge and you can even freeze it.


  • 2 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 red onion
  • 1 red pepper
  • 1 tablespoon tomato puree
  • 1 tablespoon soft brown sugar
  • 500g tomatoes (over ripe are best)
  • 400g chopped tomatoes
  • 2 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce


  1. In a frying pan heat the oil and cook the chopped onion and chopped red pepper for about 20 minutes until soft.
  2. Add the tomato puree and the sugar and cook for 1-2 minutes. Add the chopped ripe tomatoes with the can of chopped tomatoes and 300ml water. Allow to simmer for 20-25 minutes, then season well and add the balsamic vinegar and Worcestershire sauce.
  3. Allow to cool slightly then put into a blender and process until smooth. If you want a really smooth finish push through a sieve. Allow to cool. It will keep for up to 2 weeks in the fridge.
