I’ve been wanting to make ketchup for a while now, and finally had the courage to dive in this week. There is something very satisfying about being able to make your own condiments. Take that, Heinz!

making ketchup

Place all of the ingredients in a pot, and bring to a boil. Lower the heat, cover, and cook down for 2 hours. Remove from heat and let cool to room temperature. Blend all the ingredients with an immersion blender, and you’ve got yourself some tasty ketchup!

    Awesome! I’m gonna try this! I’m really getting into making my own foods these days. It’s usually so easy and soooooo much healthier! (No additives or preservatives).

    I plan to try this – been trying to find a recipe for ketchup without tomato paste (or onions and garlic) to avoid FODMAPs (which bother a lot of those with IBS ) and I think this might work! I may try in the Crockpot though.

    Glad I could help! Also, thanks for introducing me to the concept of FODMAPS.
