Green Tomato Ketchup

Green Tomato Ketchup

Diana Rattray
A green tomato ketchup recipe. More green tomato recipes below.


  • 6 pounds green tomatoes
  • 3 pounds onions
  • 2 teaspoons black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon dry mustard
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 teaspoons mixed pickling spices, optional
  • 2 cups vinegar
  • 1 cup honey


Slice green tomatoes and onions; place in a large pot with pepper, mustard, and Worcestershire sauce. If using, put the mixed pickling spices in a small cheesecloth bag and add to the mixture. Pour vinegar over all and cook for 4 hours over very low heat, stirring occasionally. Carefully puree mixture in a blender; strain through a mesh strainer. Return to pot and bring to boil; add honey. Immediately fill 6 sterilized pint jars, leaving 1/4-inch head space. Wipe the jar tops and threads clean with clean damp towels. Place hot sealing lids on the jars and apply the screw on rings loosely. Process in boiling water bath in a deep canning pot for 5 minutes. Remove the jars and cool completely. Tighten the jar screw rings to complete the sealing process. After jars cool, check seals by pressing middle of lid with finger. (If lid springs back, it is not sealed and must be refrigerated.) Let jars of green tomato ketchup stand at room temperature 24 hours. Store unopened product in a cool dry place up to one year. Refrigerate green tomato ketchup after opening.
Makes 6 pints of green tomato ketchup.

I think this was a good start on Green Tomato Ketchup. I just felt it was too runny. I did strain it and maybe I shouldn't have. Also the recipe calls for no salt and maybe that would bring out the flavor. If there is a way to thicken this I would like to know. I noticed that a lot of recipes call for peppers and this one did not. Maybe that would have made a difference. Overall it has a good flavor.
