Mm mm, nothing is better than homemade ketchup; making your own ketchup is so EASY to make at home and making it yourself allows you to control what goes in it.

Paired perfectly with my Grilled Potatoes. Also try homemade Spicy Chipotle Ketchup.

Ketchup is as American as apple pie, that sweet-sour combination on french fries are irresistible and who doesn’t love it on their burgers! But have you ever checked the label of your favorite brand of ketchup? High Fructose Corn Syrup is used to sweeten most brands of ketchup although I did find organic Heinz ketchup in my health food store that does not contain HFCS’s, but it was half the size at a higher price.

So I thought it would be fun to try making my own and tested and played around with a few recipes until I found one that I loved with some slight changes using honey as my sweetener and cutting back on the sugar and tested it out on some grilled fries (recipe coming!) and the results were delicious…

  1. This was so delicious! It was a bit tart. I could taste the white vinegar a little. The next time I make it I will cut back on the vinegar by maybe a tablespoon or two. But I so enjoyed this. Very simple and didn’t take long to make at all.

    Delish! Will make more now that I got this recipe. Of course I did not have the garlic or honey, so made a couple of changes. I used brown sugar instead, added some red pepper flakes and Worcestershire sauce. No matter, thanks so much as I used ketchup on just about everything,
