In our last post, I hopefully put the fear of God in you about some of the additives in processed foods.  We all love our condiments.  God knows, I’m a hot sauce and ketchup freak.  That said, how can we avoid the additives in our favorite condiments.  Largely, we can make our own.  And we can make them BETTER!

This will be an on going  feature.  Look for your favorite recipes under the “recipe” tab on our home page.

Heinz Ketchup Copycat Recipe:

This recipe came mostly from  http://www.topsecretrecipes.com/Heinz-Ketchup-Recipe.html

23 Calories per serving
Cook time:  1 1/2 hours
Makes 1 1/2 cups

1 – 6 oz can of Italian tomato paste (read the label)
1/2 c – light corn syrup (or honey for a healthier version)
1/2 c – white vinegar
1/4 c – water
1 T – sugar
1 t – salt
1/4 t – onion powder
1/8 t – garlic powder

Combine all ingredients in a medium saucepan over medium heat.  Whisk until smooth or use a stick blender

When mixture comes to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for 20 minutes.  Stir often to avoid burning on the bottom.

Remove Pan from heat and cover until cool.  Chill and store in a covered container.
