This turned out tasty. It was pretty easy and fast, too, which always helps. If you want it to be more like normal ketchup, send it through the blender. It's got a sweet and sour flavor going with the tomato flavor.
We served it with pork and rice, but you can try it on fries or fish sticks or chicken or whatever you like to put ketchup over.
1 14 oz can diced tomatoes
1/2 c. crushed pineapple
1/4 c. brown sugar
1/4 c. soy sauce
2 T. lemon juice
1 t. garlic powder
2 t. ginger
1/2 t. black pepper
3 T. cornstarch
1/3 c. cold water
Mix everything except cornstarch and cold water in a saucepan. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and let simmer for 15 minutes, until it darkens a little and thickens just a bit.
Mix cornstarch and cold water in a small bowl until smooth. Bring sauce back to a boil. Stir in cornstarch. Boil and stir for one minute. Remove from heat. Serve warm or cold.
If you want it smoother, send it through the blender. Makes about 1 1/2 - 2 cups of sauce.
