Quick and easy, sugar free homemade ketchup

Saturday, September 03, 2016

It seems these days that every label you look at in the store, sugar is involved.  My doc gave me a list of sugar and vinegar free recipes.  Here is one for ketchup that we quite like.

2 cups tomato paste
1/2 cup lemon juice
1/2 cup water
1 tsp oregano
1/8 teas cumin
1/8 teas nutmeg
1/8 teas pepper
1/2 teas dry mustard
dash (or more) of garlic powder

Put all into a food processor and blend well.  Store in the refrigerator.

I substituted a blend of herbs I dried from the herb garden last year and added about a 1/4 teas of garlic instead of a dash because we really like garlic.

Quick tip-make dried garlic into garlic powder

If you have extra tomatoes, you can easily make your own paste and use it for your ketchup.   Just cook down your homemade tomato sauce until it gets to the consistency you want for your ketchup.
