Ketchup is the king of all condiments. Unfortunately, most commercial varieties of ketchup contain high fructose corn syrup. HFCS has no real nutritional value and causes a big spike in blood sugar when consumed. It is widely used as it extends the shelf life of processed food and it is cheaper than sugar.
Additionally, ketchup has a large amount of sugar. Even organic brands often contain some questionable ingredients. So making your own homemade ketchup is the best option.
- 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
Whisk all ingredients together in a bowl, and enjoy!
