Hedgerow Ketchup

Try this ketchup with rabbit and apple burgers…! If you don’t have any of those to hand it’s good with eggs, cheese or meat.

I collected mostly Hawthorn Haws for this sauce, but for variety I added some rosehips, blackberries, sloes, and elderberries.

  • 1kg mixed hedge berries, (mainly haws)
  • 500ml cider vinegar
  • 100ml malt vinegar
  • 600ml water
  • 300g sugar
  • salt and pepper

Put the berries, vinegars, and water in a pan and simmer for 40 mins until the colour comes out of the berries, squash through a seive into a clean pan and add the sugar. Bring gently to the boil, add salt and pepper and cook for 5 minutes. Bottle in sterilised bottles or jars.
