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.
-1 can tomato paste (12 oz or 369 mL)
-1 cup water
-2 TBSP white vinegar
-1/2 TSP salt
-1/2 TSP curry powder
-1 garlic clove, minced
-1 TBSP molasses (ideally organic blackstrap molasses)
-2 TBSP honey
-1/4 TSP cinnamon
- Mix all ingredients in a medium saucepan and bring to a boil over medium-high heat.
- Reduce the heat to low and simmer while stirring frequently until all ingredients are well blended.
- Allow the ketchup to cool for 5 minutes.
- Transfer the ketchup to a glass jar and completely cool before serving. Keep refrigerated.
