It takes really no time at all to make this much ketchup. It's also low in sugar and salt and super high in flavor!

Two of the ingredients I am going to use in my ketchup came from the Miami Valley Spice Traders. You have got to try the black garlic and their super fresh cinnamon!

Drizzle with a small amount of olive oil and stir. I don't use salt because you have salt in the ketchup.

I love ketchup! I am one of those folks that even likes it on scrambled eggs. The problem with most store-bought ketchups is that the sugar and salt content is too high. I hadn't put much thought in to it until my husband and I were out to dinner. Eating out is a rare ocurrence for us. We live in an area of the country that is dominated by corporate-owned resturants (chains). The fat, salt and sugar in these white flour, white sugar, white rice, and fried recipes that these restaurant chains serve is sky high and the nutritional quality is so low that we prefer to NOT eat out. The one place we do like is a 40 minute drive from the house so I just figure in 40 minutes I could have something healthy on the table--if I plan ahead. But it was on one of these rare "eating out" occasions that I ordered a homemade veggie burger which was served with the restaurant's own "homemade ketchup". It was SO much better than Heinz. From that moment on I was hooked. Why was I buying that poorly made condiment? So, off I went in search of the best ketchup recipes I could find. As it ended up, I couldn't find exactly what I was looking for, so I had to create my own. Now you can make your own, too!

This recipe is so easy and it makes enough to last for months! The taste is unbelievable. It makes sweet potato fries a culinary experience! My husband and I put it on everything. If the recipe makes too much please feel free to share it with your closest friends! It's also a great gift giving idea. Nothing tells someone how much you love them quite as good as something you hand-crafted for them. I hope you this changes your mind about store-bought ketchup too!
