homemade ketchup recipe

I’m in LOVE!!! I’ve been craving sweet potato fries all day, and nothing goes better with fries than ketchup! So, I was very disappointed when I opened up the fridge and saw that the bottle was empty :( After a brief moment of slight hysterics, I decided to make my own. It took only minutes and the taste was amazing! I will NEVER again by store bought ketchup! Plus… less sugar, less sodium, less preservatives, more taste!

1 (6 0z) can tomato paste
1/2 – 3/4 cup water
2 tbsp fresh squeezed lemon juice
2 tbsp agave nectar
1 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp garlic powder
3/4 tsp salt

Combine ingredients in bowl and mix well. Refrigerate in covered bowl or old ketchup bottle.

    Really, it’s that easy?? My guy finishes off the HUGE bottles of Heinz in the blink of an eye, but I never thought to make some for him instead… And sweet potato fries are the best!

      It’s that easy! Now you can easily whip up more for a lot less… just use a funnel to refill the old bottle!
