Homemade Ketchup In 2 Minutes

We use tomato ketchup with almost everything. When that's the case, why go for an unhealthy preserved option and buy ketchup from the market? This simple recipe will tell you how to make ketchup at home with minimal ingredients in just two minutes.

Ketchup is a delicious and convenient condiment. It goes with everything–meat, vegetables, and more–and can turn a mediocre meal into a stunning one!

Here’s an easy way to make your own ketchup in just 2 minutes.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup organic tomato paste
  • 1 tbsp raw organic honey
  • 1 tbsp raw unfiltered apple cider vinegar
  • 1/4 tsp mustard
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1/4 cup water

All you need to do is whisk the ingredients together and your ketchup is ready!

Make Or Buy?

So why bother making ketchup at home when it’s so easily available outside?

  • Bottled or commercial ketchup contains high-fructose corn syrup (HFCS). This is sugar, with a higher amount of fructose. Fructose instigates hunger, which is correlated with increasing obesity and diabetes.
  • Bottled products contain GMOs (genetically modified organisms). Tomato concentrates contain citric acid to preserve the ketchup, which is not good for the body.

Homemade ketchup, on the other hand, helps you keep a watch on the sugar intake, is free of preservatives, and is also a lot tastier than the ones available in the market. Though the shelf life is short, you may be assured of a fresh and healthy ketchup.

Make ketchup at home so that you know what goes in, and keep the calorie count low and healthy.

Well at least I don't see sugar on the list/table. Which seems to be the main ingredient in processed ketchup.
