Buh-Bye HFCS Heinz, Hello All Natural Homemade Ketchup!

The Happy Health Freak

We’ve all heard the dangers of High Fructose Corn Syrup (HFCS); it causes obesity, liver damage, diabetes, heart disease, tooth decay and more. It is most commonly found in soft drinks, fruit juices, salad dressings, cereal, and condiments – including a staple in our household, Heinz Ketchup. I’ve been eager to try making my own ketchup. Originally, I was going to make it straight from tomatoes, but opted for a recipe with organic tomato paste instead. It was super easy to make and SO much better for you I don’t know why I didn’t try it earlier! Even my ketchup lovin’ husband approves!ketchup2Makes 2 cups

1 large can organic tomato paste (13 oz)  – make sure the only ingredient is “tomatoes”
2 cloves of garlic
½ small white onion, diced
1/4 cup organic apple cider vinegar
1/4 cup water
1/2 Tbsp powdered stevia (or any sweetener of your choice, honey, agave, maple syrup)
