Health, Home, and Happiness: Easy Homemade Ketchup

Easy Homemade Ketchup

The Nourishing Traditions recipe for ketchup has intimidated me, so I was glad to find one without the addition of homemade fish sauce in the GAPS book.

2 Cups bottled tomato juice (Campbell's from Albertson's was 3.79)
Salt and pepper to taste
2-4 cloves garlic (optional)
~Boil above, uncovered (I covered with a sieve to prevent splatters) for quite a while, until it gets to the desired consistency.
~Add honey to taste (I used a couple tablespoons)

Store in the fridge.

Easy! No corn syrup like supermarket ketchup, and it doesn't carry the health food store price tag.  This summer if we get an abundance of home grown tomatoes again I hope to do a bunch of this from fresh tomato juice.

Homemade Mayonnaise
Are you using coconut oil in your cooking yet?
Soaked Wheat Bread: It doesn't have the dryness normally associated with wheat bread. Make in just a few minutes of hands-on time.

Are you using Swagbucks to search and win yet?

That's better, with your own tomato juice because you know exactly what's in it, good for you for canning it.

Store tomato juice from concentrate I'm sure is re-constituted with questionable city water (chlorine, fluoride, etc)

Fabulous!!! This is something I have wanted to do. How long does it keep?

I'm not sure how long it keeps in the fridge. I think I'm going to try freezing it in small jam jars, though, I'm pretty sure it'll freeze just fine and then I can thaw a few weeks' worth at a time.

The ketchup looks easy enough! I like that. I'm going to try it. Let's pray for a bumper crop of tomatoes before the hornworms get them!!!
