Tomato Ketchup and Zook's Roadside Stand....
  • 1 bushel ripe tomatoes
  • 1 /2 cup salt
  • 1 /2 cup pickle spice mix
  • 6 medium onions
  • 1 large mango
  • 10 cups white sugar
  • 1 /2 cup cornstarch
  • 1 cup water (scant)
  • 2 1 /4 cup white vinegar
  1. Slice unpeeled tomatoes as for table use and put in a crock in layers.  Sprinkle each layer with salt ending with salt.  Place a light weight on them.  Let stand 5 days and drain off the liquid each day.  On the 6th day, drain very well and run through colander.  Tie spices in a bag and put in pulp and cook for 45 minutes.  Take cornstarch and water and make a smooth liquid and add to catsup and cook about 10 minutes. I add cornstarch enough till the right thickness.  Note: the tomatoes will have a bad odor when putting them through the colander, but they are alright.
