needand freeze it Diesel’s these alas reallyfor a very long time in the freezer Iusually buy the peppers in a bag andthen they’re there they’re fruit in thefrozen section of Publix where again andI thought hey if they can do that withpeppers why can’t I do they have anonion so we’re gonna took the rest ofthat onion and put it in the freezerall right we got a cup of ketchup abouttwo tablespoons of Worcestershire sauceI’m sorry one tablespoon ofWorcestershire self I’ll have all thisposted up below this is from ahandwritten recipe that my mother sentme that about two tablespoons of justI’m using white vinegar I guess any kindof vinegar would do and about atablespoon and a half of lemon juice 2tablespoons of I’m using light brownsugar some thinly sliced pieces of lemonand a half a cup of water now I may needto add a little water to this recipe aswe go so let’s put this thing togetheras you start by sauteing your onionsin your and get that going so using oneof those induction cooktops and there’sa couple of reasons I like peace thingsnumber one they save on electricity alot and I’m in the process of building atiny house and that’s what I’m gonna beusing is an induction cooktop don’t endof the modal tiny house so let’s getstarted I’m gonna saute the onions andthen I’ll be right back okay as you seeyou have melted the butter down on hereand onions are starting getting thetranslucent we’re gonna cook them justwe can’t in words I’ll tell you what itsmells prey already if you ever use aninduction cooktop I have forgotten thisthing it gets instantly high if you’reusing the proper you can spare pans andutensils and I had your dropper down ona medium low because the butter wasstarting to burn so they get extremelyhot if you want to cook a steak in acast-iron skillet these bad boys are thethey really really get hot baths andthey stay like a really long time nowwe’re gonna try summering this that’s alast step let’s go getting that ourdreams firstso that’s that upper ketchup you knowwhat I think I’m gonna add the waterfirst you might need to add a littlemore water to get the proper consistencywith less let’s say under water per thekind of D plays and as they saythis is gonna be simmering for a whileso you know your onions aren’t perfectlytranslucent things quality no no let’sadd ketchupso this is one cup of ketchup I don’thave a cup of water just to thin
