Making homemade ketchup is deliciously simple. I love being able to control the quality and quantity of the ingredients that are added.
There are a lot of great ketchup's out there - organic, low sugar and even flavored - but many contain additives or high fructose corn syrup. Who needs that when it just takes a few ingredients that you probably already have at home to whip up a batch of your own.
Get your kids involved - they'll have fun helping measure the ingredients, stirring, and of course helping you taste the finished product!
6 oz can Organic Tomato Paste
1/2 cup White Vinegar
1/4 cup Honey or Agave
1/4 cup Water
1 teaspoon Sugar
3/4 teaspoon Sea Salt
1/4 teaspoon Onion Powder
1/8 teaspoon Garlic Powder
We all know Honey has great health benefits, but did you know that using local honey can actually help with some seasonal allergies?!
Want to spice things up? Add a teaspoon of chipotle peppers in adobo or more if you are in a spicy mood!
1. Combine all ingredients in a sauce pan

Happy Cooking and Happy Styling!
