This homemade ketchup is easy, inexpensive, and tastes better than any store-bought version I've tried! Perfect on burgers, hot dogs, or fries.
Speaking of burgers and hot dogs... Happy Labor Day! Are they on your menu today or are you cooking up something else? I hope that many of you have plans to soak up just a few more hours of summer before we launch all the way into September.
Awhile back, I hosted a children's event and we made this ketchup. I'd never made ketchup before and couldn't believe how easy it was! The kids devoured it and all claimed it to be 'the best ketchup ever', which is high marks considering they are ketchup connoisseurs...
Throw in the pot, whisk, simmer, done. Couldn't be easier!
At just 20 calories a tablespoon, it's also guilt free!
6 ounce can tomato paste
1/4 cup honey
1/2 cup white vinegar
1/4 cup water
1 teaspoon sugar
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon onion powder
1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
Combine all ingredients in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Whisk until smooth. Bring to a boil then reduce heat to low and simmer for 20 minutes, stirring often.
Remove from heat, cover, and let cool. Once cooled, transfer to a storage container and store in the refrigerator until chilled.
