Easy! No corn syrup like supermarket ketchup, and it doesn’t carry the health food store price tag. Ketchup is a favorite for children and most adults due to the sweet taste- ‘tomato syrup’ is what I’ve heard it referred to among skeptics. Thankfully, with this recipe you’ll feel good about serving homemade ketchup as often as your family would like it.
- 12 ounces tomato paste
- 4 teaspoons apple cider vinegar
- ½ teaspoon mustard powder
- 1 cup stock
- ¼ cup honey
- ½ teaspoon cinnamon
- ¼ teaspoon allspice
- ½ teaspoon sea salt (to taste)
- ¼ teaspoon paprika
- 2 cloves garlic, crushed
- 1 bay leaf
- Combine all ingredients except the bay leaf in a medium saucepan over medium high heat, bring to a boil, stirring often. Add in bay leaf , reduce heat to medium-low, and allow the ketchup to simmer for 20 minutes or until desired thickness. If it quickly gets too thick, add in more stock to thin. Remove bay leaf.
