Homemade Paleo Ketchup

My husband and I have been using this recipe for about a year now and we love it!  It has a nice, thick consistency and has a bit of a BBQ sauce flavour to it as well.  Not only is it a much healthier alternative to store bought ketchup, it is quick and simple to make.  Oh, and did I mention it is paleo friendly?  My sister-in-law uses this recipe as well except she cuts the amount of molasses in half to ½ tbsp.  This brings out more of the taste of the tomatoes and less of a BBQ sauce flavour.
