Finally got around to trying this, after using up the organic ketchup I bought several months ago but planned to replace with homemade once we used it up since it’s made with agave nectar, which is highly processed. I’ve found several recipes on-line, but most are more complicated and made with more spices than I know the 7-year-old would like. I have to admit this came out a bit more like a marinara dip than ketchup, but it’s not bad. Might use a little less garlic powder and a little more honey next time. Once I perfect it, I’ll also increase the amounts. This made about half a bottle (roughly 12 ounces).
6-oz can organic tomato paste (read label to check for additives and preservatives!)
6 ounces of water (fill empty tomato paste can)
1 tbsp organic vinegar
1/2 tsp organic garlic powder
1/2 tsp organic onion powder
1/2 tsp organic raw honey
In medium sized bowl, add all ingredients and whisk until well mixed. Spoon into squeeze bottle if desired, and refrigerate overnight for flavors to mix.
