Yes! Make your own ketchup. Why? Because you can. This is really easy.
1 jar tomato paste, 6-7 ounces. We use Bionaturae Organic Tomato Paste in the 7-ounce glass jar. Most others come in 6-ounce cans.
1/3 cup water
3 Tablespoons apple cider vinegar
6 Tablespoons date paste (or other sweetener)
1 teaspoon onion powder
1-2 pinches ground cloves or allspice
Mix ingredients in a small saucepan. Adjust vinegar and sweetener to your taste.
Cook over medium heat and bring to a “boil”. It doesn’t really boil, but the thick mixture will start to pop. Reduce heat and cook on low, stirring often, for about ten minutes.
Store in refrigerator.
