Umami-Savory Ketchup

Umami Ketchup is savory, slightly sweet with the perfect balance of tomato, vinegar and salt. After one taste, you’ll understand why we think it’s the best thing to happen to ketchup since fries, it is absolutely the “Best Ketchup Ever”!


  • 1 28-oz. can whole peeled tomatoes
  • 3 tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 medium yellow onion, chopped
  • 1/2 cup cider vinegar
  • 1/3 cup packed dark brown sugar
  • 2 tbsp. tomato paste
  • 1 tsp. kosher salt, plus more to taste
  • 2 tsp. Tamari
  • 2 tsp. Worcestershire
  • 2 tsp. oyster sauce
  • 5 anchovies, finely chopped and mashed into a paste


  1. Purée tomatoes in a blender; set aside. Heat oil in a 4-qt. saucepan over medium heat.
  2. Add onions; cook until soft, about 8 minutes. Add tomato purée, vinegar, brown sugar, tomato paste, and salt; cook, stirring occasionally, until thick, about 1 hour.
  3. Purée cooked tomato mixture in a blender. Transfer to a bowl; season with salt and stir in remaining ingredients.
  4. Cover and chill before using. If using for a party, it’s nice to serve in individual portions.


Umami or savory taste, is one of the five basic tastes (together with sweetness, sourness, bitterness, and saltiness).
