Step 1

Pour all the ingredients into a slow cooker. Use the water to rinse the remaining tomato paste out of the cans.
Wisk together all the ingredients until well combined.
Cook on low until mixture is very thick. About 6-8 hours. Stir every hour.
Remove and cool in a bowl before pouring into a sealed container for storage.

You can store your homemade ketchup in any container that seals tight. I have used mason jars and also used the plastic squeeze bottles that you can purchase.
