"Can't wait to try this. I have been using vinegar for everything and love the way it cleans, but hate the smell."

My latest DIY project:
I made homemade ketchup and kitchen cleaning spray last week. Currently consructing halloween costumes.
Here's my ketchup recipe:

1 large can of crushed tomatoes
one smallish onion
1 clove of garlic (minced)
1 can of tomato paste
1/2 cup of vinegar of your choice (not balsamic, though--too overpowering)
1/3 cup sugar
salt & pepper to taste

saute the garic and onion untill very soft. Add the tomatoes and thier liquid and the tomato paste. Stir well and simmer untill reduced by 1/3, (about 1 hour). Add the vinegar, sugar, salt and pepper. Let mixture cool slightly, and then puree it, in batches, in a blender. Bottle it up, pass it out to your friends. Yum! Stays good in the fridge for about two - four weeks.

Hello. Yes, I'm in Cambridge. I have a worm bin and a few herbs - no land to speak of. Would love to hear more about your Providence homestead.
