3 pounds of red onions are being caramelized in the slow cooker tonight. Tomorrow they will be joined by 6 pounds of chopped tomatoes and various other ingredients which will then be cooked for the day to turn into jam.

Some seriously delicious grilled cheese and tomato-onion jam sandwiches are in our future.

So I ended up simmering it for longer than planned (nearly a day!) and using an immersion blender to puree it because some of the tomato pieces were not going to break down on their own.

The result is that I have five 12oz/354ml jars of 'dark and brooding' homemade ketchup :)
