We used the previous ketchup recipe I posted for a few weeks, but I noticed that the kids and husband weren’t loving it as much after it had sit in the refrigerator for a few days. So I decided to keep going with the ketchup experiments. The new recipe is much closer to the store-bought version, but healthier with no hfcs.
I found the base for this recipe at topsecretrecipes.com. But I changed it to take out the corn syrup and sugar and I replaced it with honey. It can be easily doubled, tripled, etc for larger families. I am going to try to can it at some point in the future and see how it turns out when it is canned. I would be great to make a bunch at once and have a jar always available.
- 6 oz can of tomato paste
- 1/2 cup honey (you can decrease this if it is too sweet for you)
- 1/2 cup white vinegar
- 1/4 cup water
- 1T sugar
- 1t salt
- 1/4t onion powder
- 1/8t garlic powder
- Whisk ingredients until smooth. Heat to a boil.
- Reduce heat, simmer 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.
- Remove from heat, let sit until cool.
So there you have it, a better version of homemade ketchup!
