Some recipes call for ketchup. Others need tomato sauce or tomato juice. Is there some way you can substitute one of these for the others?
Take a can of tomato sauce and try some of these substitutions:
- 1 cup ketchup (for use in cooking): substitute 1 cup tomato sauce, 1/2 cup sugar, and 2 tablespoons vinegar
- 1 cup chili sauce: substitute 1 cup tomato sauce, 1/4 cup brown sugar, 2 tablespoons vinegar, 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon, dash of ground cloves and dash of allspice
- 1 cup tomato juice: substitute 1/2 cup tomato sauce and 1/2 cup water
- 1 10-3/4 ounce can tomato soup: substitute 1 cup tomato sauce plus 1/4 cup water
