Slow Roasted Tomato Ketchup


It’s grilling season and when planning what to grill for your next gathering, it’s fun to also think about special condiments for your table.  In keeping with last week’s post about summer fresh tomatoes, I thought it would be fun to share Anisa Sabet’s Slow Roasted Tomato Ketchup recipe.


Anisa Sabet is one of my favorite bloggers and instagram accounts to follow.  She is a photographer and stylist and her photos and settings are just gorgeous.  She also creates recipes, which are amazing.   I have made my own tomato jam in the past and nothing beats homemade ketchup, which can be used at your next cookout or as a special sauce paired with cheeses on bruschetta.
