I’ve always loved ketchup. Fries just aren’t the same without it! However, store-bought brands have a ridiculous amount of sugar, high fructose corn syrup and artificial ingredients. My Homemade Ketchup on the other hand is free from all of that!
There’s a couple key ingredients in this recipe: ginger and balsamic. These two ingredients really make the ketchup go above and beyond in flavor! It’s also made with fresh tomatoes which makes a huge difference! The ketchup is pure and sharp in flavor. It’s exactly what you need with your next veggie burger and fries!
Homemade Ketchup (V/GF)
Forget store-bought ketchup! You'll never go back to it once you try this homemade ketchup. Store-bought ketchup has a ridiculous amount of sugar, high fructose corn syrup and artificial ingredients. This homemade ketchup on the other hand is free from all of that and it's so easy to make!
- 3 lbs fresh ripe tomatoes , chopped
- 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
- 2 1/2 tbsp pure maple syrup
- 1 1/2 inch piece of fresh ginger peeled and minced
- 1 tsp balsamic vinegar
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/4 tsp garlic powder
- 1/4 tsp onion powder
Add all of the ingredients to a medium-size pot.
Place the pot over medium-high heat and let the ingredients cook until they are soft and broken down, about 20-25 minutes. Stir occasionally.
Once tomatoes are broken down, turn off the heat and let the ingredients cool down completely.
Now put all the ingredients into a high-speed blender and blend till you get a smooth puree.
Return purée to the stove and cook over medium heat.
When it comes to a boil, reduce the heat to low. Let simmer and stir occasionally for about 45 minutes. The puree will thicken and slowly turn into a ketchup-like consistency.
When it gets to your preferred consistency, turn off the heat and let chill to room temperature.
Store refrigerated in an airtight container.
