Farmyard: Make your own ketchup at home

With Farmyard our goal is to start growing our own fruit, herbs, flowers and veg and we hope that in the next year we’ll be able to set up our own food & drinks unit in Eatyard, selling only the good ol produce we have harvested ourselves. With that we thought we’d share some of our favourite Farmyard recipes we’ve used over the past year.


How to make Ketchup


  • 2 cans of tomato paste
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 2 Tbsp. raw apple cider vinegar
  • 1/8 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp. cloves
  • 1/8 tsp. cayenne
  • 1/8 tsp. black pepper
  • Sea salt, to taste
  • 1/4 cup Sucanat



  1. In a small saucepan combine the Sucanat and water. Cook over medium heat, stirring frequently, until Sucanat is dissolved.
  2. Mix the water and sucanat with all other ingredients in a bowl.
  3. Transfer to a quart jar, cover with a lid, and allow to ferment for 2 to 5 days, depending on the temperature, until bubbly and fermented.


It’s that bloody simple! We are by no means experts at this ourselves, it’s all trial and error. But it’s a lot of fun and hopefully we can inspire some of you to join the buzz in 2022.
