I found this on top tastes, posted by Teresa/Thunderbird. The recipe is not already on RZ, and although I haven't tried this yet, I want to keep it for reference. Teresa has many good recipes posted here at RZ, so I feel comfortable that it should be a good recipe and am willing to share it before I make this. Thanks, Teresa!

So it snowed here yesterday and now it isn't going to get above freezing until next week sometime. I do not drive in the ice or snow (one less idiot on the road). Thought I had stocked up on everything but forgot ketchup. Came across this post this morning and thought "What the heck..." This is dead on Heinz Ketchup. It's fast, easy, made with pantry staples and it tastes great! Thanks for posting!

My family is attempting to use fewer commercially prepared products, so I thought I would give this one a try. I also wanted to be a little more healthful, so I substituted honey for the corn syrup, and reduced the amount to 1/3 cup. Next time, I think I may even reduce the honey to 1/4 cup. The substitution makes this ketchup a little tangier instead of overly sweet, and we are enjoying it. Thanks for posting!

This ketchup is really good! It is the best that I have tried so far and the closest to Heinz. I don't use corn syrup, so I used honey instead. Thank you so much for this great recipe, that I will be making again soon!
