This tangy ketchup delivers maximum flavour for minimum effort. It’s just blitzed-up gherkins, but your guests will think you’re a pickling genius

  • 200g gherkins from a jar, sliced
  • 250ml gherkin pickle liquor
  • 25g caster sugar


  1. Tip all the ingredients into a pan. Bring to the boil and simmer for 10-15 mins until almost all of the liquid has evaporated. Pour the gherkins into a blender and purée until smooth. Then pass through a fine sieve and chill in the fridge. Can be made up to five days ahead, just give it a stir before serving. Best served at room temperature.

Made this tonight using exact proportions mentioned in the recipe and ended up with something with a much more liquid texture than shown. I found that I needed to double the amount of gherkins to get something approaching the picture. Would recommend blitzing the gherkins and then adding liquid gradually - it is what I will do in future.
