Homemade Ketchup


Who needs 57 ingredients in their ketchup?  Making ketchup is way easier than you think!  And how cool will you look at your Summer BBQ’s by saying, “Try some of my homemade ketchup on your veggie burger”?  This ketchup is also the base of a lot of my sauces I’ll be talking about in the next few weeks so it’s great to have on hand.

Homemade Ketchup

makes 3 cups

12 oz. tomato paste*

1/2 cup agave nectar (or honey)

1/2 cup white vinegar

1/2 cup water

1 tsp. salt

1/2 tsp. onion powder

1/4 tsp. garlic powder

Whisk all the ingredients together in a pot and heat on medium until it bubbles, reduce heat to low and let simmer for 15-20 minutes stirring regularly.  Refrigerate and serve chilled.

*Make sure you buy a tomato paste where the only ingredient is “tomatoes”. You don’t want all that other chemical stuff!
