Perhaps the hardest part of a gluten-free, corn-free diet is the inability to find ketchups on the grocer’s shelves that are safe to use. Here is a recipe that will take less than 1/2 hour to prepare and will keep in the refrigerator for several months. It is idiot-proof, I promise, and tastes good too. In no time at all you will once again be able to enjoy ketchup again.
- 2 (8 ounce) cansof organic tomato paste
- 1⁄4 cup apple cider vinegar
- 2 tablespoons lemon juice or 2 tablespoons orange juice
- 1⁄2 teaspoon onion salt
- 1⁄2 teaspoon garlic salt
- 1⁄4 cup honey or 1⁄4 cup maple syrup
- Bring ingredients to boil on the stove. Simmer 15 minutes, then take ketchup off heat for 10 minutes. Pour into a condiment jar and refrigerate. Makes a little over 4 cups of ketchup.
I think the original poster forgot to include water as an ingredient. I put 2 cups in, added more spices. Some white pepper, more garlic and onion powder, and added salt. I also used a little more sweetener...I chose honey and maple syrup. It's perfect now!
I have been using this to make our own ketchup since June of 2011 because of the corn syrup and white vinegar in store-bought ketchup. While I can't say I like it quite as much as store-bought, it works with our diet. The flavor is okay, but the texture is quite a bit thicker, which some people might enjoy. I will continue to use this recipe. I have found however that the recipe makes closer to 2 cups ketchup and not the 4 cups as stated.
Thank you for sharing this. I love it and we use it in place of our ketchup all the time.
