I enjoys sweet and sour foods. I would prepares a bottle of ketchup every month and stores it in the refrigerator. The lycopene in tomatoes has been medically proven in recent years to have anti-cancer effects, especially in the concentrated form of tomato ketchup after heating and cooking. Making it yourself allows you to customize different flavors for your family, adjusting the amounts of sugar and salt as seasonings, without added coloring or preservatives, so you can fully absorb the nutritional value of the tomatoes.

The careful handling of an ingredient often reflects its importance in the culinary culture. Tomato sauce has many detailed classifications in Western cuisine: Tomato Sauce, Tomato Puree, Tomato Paste, Ketchup, and more. To be honest, when it comes to homestyle cooking, it’s more practical for me to share a reliable recipe rather than go into the distinctions between these types.

I keeps two homemade tomato sauces in his fridge – one that’s closer to Tomato Sauce, and another that’s more like Tomato Paste. That’s a simpler way to categorize them for everyday home cooking, rather than getting bogged down in all the technical definitions.


Tomato Sauce is a tomato-based condiment that is more watery and saucy in consistency, often used as a sauce for pasta dishes. It’s similar to the pre-made Italian-style tomato sauces sold in jars. By utilizing different tomato varieties – San Marzano tomatoes have an intense flavor, while beefsteak tomatoes are juicier – and combining them with other vegetables like bell peppers, carrots, mushrooms, onions, garlic, herbs and spices, you can create a range of flavorful tomato sauces. These are well-suited for braising meats and vegetables, as well as dressing pasta dishes. You simply need to add your desired proteins, seafood, vegetables and pasta, and a complete Italian dish is ready to serve. If making a sauce for a specific dish, you can customize the seasonings as needed.

Tomato Paste is a very thick, concentrated tomato product with little moisture. I make mine by dehydrating San Marzano tomatoes and then adding in sugar, salt, vinegar, garlic powder and Worcestershire sauce. The result has a ketchup-like flavor and texture – rich, dense and spreadable. This works well as a topping for pizza, as it won’t make the crust soggy with excess liquid. It also makes a great addition to tomato breads, where the concentrated tomato flavor won’t get diluted by the flour. It’s delicious for dipping fries, veggie sticks or serving alongside hot dogs.

❶ Cut the tomatoes in half and then into quarters. Use a knife to score around the stem end of the red bell pepper, then pull out the entire stem and scrape out the remaining seeds. Cut the bell pepper in half. Halve the cherry tomatoes and arrange all the prepared vegetables in a single layer on a baking sheet. Roast in the oven at 160°C (320°F) for 1 hour and 30 minutes, retaining some of the moisture. After roasting, peel the skins off the large tomatoes and bell pepper.

❷ Dice the onion and solo garlic. Add 1 tablespoon of olive oil to a pan and sauté the onion and garlic over medium heat for about 15 minutes. If the onions start to dry out and scorch, gradually add a little hot water. Cook the onions until they are translucent, then remove from heat.

Transfer the tomato sauce into sterilized glass jars. The sauce can be stored in the refrigerator for 3-4 days. Alternatively, you can pour the sauce into sealed plastic bags, flatten them to remove air pockets, and store in the freezer for up to 3 months.

Homemade Tomato Paste (can be used as Ketchup)


  • 900g cherry tomatoes (or “Sweet Drops” tomatoes)
  • 2 tbsp organic apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tbsp demerara raw rock sugar
  • 1/2 tsp Himalayan salt
  • 1/2 tsp homemade garlic powder or homemade chicken powder
  • 1/2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
  • Freshly ground white pepper to taste
  • 1 small bunch of fresh basil (optional)


❶ Cut the cherry tomatoes in half and arrange them cut-side up on a baking sheet. Roast the tomatoes in the oven at 150°C (300°F) for 2 hours. The cherry tomatoes should be slightly dried out. Remove the tomatoes from the oven and let them cool down. If the tomato skins are charred, peel them off.

Add the roasted cherry tomatoes to a food processor. Then add the apple cider vinegar, demerara sugar, Himalayan salt, homemade garlic powder or chicken powder, Worcestershire sauce, and freshly ground white pepper. Blend everything into a thick, non-flowing paste consistency. Transfer the concentrated tomato paste into sterilized glass jars. This tomato paste has a higher acidity and lower moisture content compared to regular tomato sauce, so it has a longer shelf life. The concentrated tomato paste can be stored in the refrigerator for about 1 week or more.
