Blueberry Ketchup - no tomatoes in this ketchup!

Ketchup can be so much more than tomatoes.  With so many blueberries available in July- why not?  This ketchup is spicy and smoky from the adobo, fresh with the ginger and the blueberries and the lime- so much goodness in a jar!  It is based on one published in Saveur magazine a few years ago.  It will keep in the refrigerator for about a month, or you can process it to keep it shelf stable for up to a year.

To make 3 250 ml jars

2 lb.          fresh blueberries
1½ cups    granulated sugar
1 cup         apple cider vinegar
¼ cups      minced onion
2 tsp.         chipotle in adobo
2 tsp.         freshly grated ginger
1 tsp.         salt
1                lime, zested and juiced


Combine all the ingredients in a 6-qt. saucepan and stir to combine. Place over high heat and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to medium-high and simmer for 35–40 minutes, until thick.

Remove the saucepan from the heat and transfer the contents into a blender; purée. Taste and adjust seasonings, if necessary.

To store, pour ketchup into a heatproof container, cool and refrigerate. For longer storage, funnel hot ketchup into clean, warm mason jars. Wipe rims, apply lids and rings, and process in a boiling water bath canner for 15 minutes.

Ketchup will keep for 3–4 weeks in the refrigerator. Processed in mason jars, unopened jars will keep up to a year on the pantry shelf.
