How can I make ketchup?

Making Ketchup

4 pounds of tomatoes - cored and
chopped, 2 cups sugar, 1/4 cup malt or apple cider vinegar, 1/2 tsp salt. Puree ingredients together. Place in saucepan and cook slowly over low heat - about 1 1/2 hours. Stir frequently. Pass hot liquid through a sieve to remove any remaining chunks. Add 1 crushed Vitamin C tablet to preserve color. Freeze or can for storage.
