Healthy Homemade Ketchup

Making your own homemade ketchup is easier than you may think. And another easy way to get the high fructose corn syrup out of your diet.

Heinz makes a version called “Simply Heinz” that has no high fructose corn syrup in it but it is more expensive. So I decided it was time to try experimenting with making my own.

My family was really surprised at how close this recipe is to the store bought versions.


(1) 6 oz can of tomato paste
2-3 TBSP of vinegar (I like a little more)
1/2 cup of water
1/4 cup of honey
1/2 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp garlic powder


1. Whisk all ingredients together in a small sauce pan and heat on medium.

2. Simmer on low for about 20 minutes.

3. Cool completely and store in a sealed container for about 2 -3 weeks.
