Simple Healthy Homemade Ketchup

Ketchup is an American staple, but did you know you can make it very easily at home? Unfortunately, a lot of store-bought ketchup is made with loads of sugar and sometimes even artificial coloring and flavoring.

If you’re craving some delicious ketchup but want a healthy, whole-food version that doesn’t sacrifice health for taste, I’ve got the perfect recipe! This recipe uses all natural, easy-to-find ingredients, and instead of lots of cane sugar like regular ketchup typically has, it requires just a bit of honey and coconut sugar, which are much healthier and both have a very low GI index compared to other sweeteners.

At the end, I’ve got a suggestion for an easy fermented version, if you’d like to make this ketchup even healthier by adding some natural probiotics.

Give it a try today and you’re sure to be making it regularly.

Ingredients
  • 2 6-ounce cans of tomato paste
  • 12 ounces filtered water
  • 6 tbs apple cider or white vinegar
  • 6 tbs honey
  • 1 tbs coconut sugar
  • 2 tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp garlic powder
  • ¼ tsp onion powder
Directions
  1. Empty the tomato paste out into a medium saucepan.
  2. Adding a few tbs of water at a time, blending completely with the tomato paste before adding any more water. This will make it easier
  3. Add the rest of the ingredients once all the water is blended completely with the tomato paste, and stir until smooth.
  4. Put the saucepan over medium heat, and bring to a simmer.
  5. Reduce heat, keeping it a simmer, and cook for 10-20 minutes, stirring frequently. Watch for splattering, it’s virtually unavoidable, but try to keep the simmer as low as you can to avoid a big mess.
  6. Remove from heat, and let cool to room temperature.
  7. Once cool, pour into a jar or bottle, cover, and keep in the refrigerator.
  8. For a very easy fermented version, before refrigerating, stir in a few tablespoons of whey. Then, cover and let culture at room temperature for 12-24 hours before refrigerating.

That’s it! Enjoy your delicious homemade ketchup on french fries and burgers or any other way in which you use ketchup.
