About Damson Ketchup
Asked on 12 Aug 2020 by Stevehorler
My Damsons are ripe already and I’m going to make Delia’s Damson (or Victoria Plum) Ketchup.
Does this need any time to mellow once bottled or can it be used straight away?
I think this recipe will still taste good freshly made.
I will try it freshly made and let you know what it’s like.
By the way, I’ve found a really easy way of stoning Damsons. I tried it Delia’s way with a sharp paring knife and it took well over an hour.
This time I’ve simply stewed them at 150 degrees, covered in foil with a tiny amount of water for 40 minutes and the stones slip off incredibly easily.
I expect you had already tried that but it really works a treat if you haven’t!
Thanks for sharing your method for stoning damsons.
I have a very good cherry stoner that I used. It works well too but it can be a bit messy, so a large apron is a must!
