This girl at ForeverSCD finally got it right. Tastes like real ketchup. It is sweet but I like it like that. Commercial ketchup is loaded with sugar so it gets us close to the real deal without those ingredients. Don’t substitute anything! Don’t use fresh or pureed diced tomatoes – use tomato paste! Trust me I tried to substitute
1 Can Tomato Hunt’s paste
3 TBSP White Vinegar
1/2 Cup Water
1/4 Cup Honey
1/2 tsp Salt
1 tsp Onion Powder (Do not Omit! This is what has brought me closer to the “real” thing.)
Bring all ingredients to a boil in a small saucepan. Stir for about 2 minutes and then turn off heat. Cool and serve. Store in refrigerator.
