Another amazing recipe from DIY Natural. I've been wanting to make my own ketchup (tomato sauce for my Aussie friends!) for ages since it goes super fast in our house and I'm sick of high fructose corn syrup being in everything. I like this ketchup because it tastes more like the organic farmers market type sauces. Family loved it.
(Makes about 1½ cups)
6-7 ounce can organic tomato paste
½ cup distilled white vinegar
¼ cup pure maple syrup
¼ cup filtered water
1 teaspoon sea salt
¼ teaspoon onion powder
⅛ teaspoon garlic powder
Combine all ingredients in a medium saucepan over medium high heat.
Begin whisking to blend ingredients until smooth.
Bring mixture to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer, stirring frequently and scraping around sides of the saucepan with a spatula.
Simmer until desired thickness is achieved (could take about 20-25 minutes or more).
Remove from heat and allow to cool.
Transfer to a jar, cap tightly, and refrigerate.
In the fridge this ketchup will last at least a month.
You can preserve this recipe using the hot water bath method just boil for 15-20 minutes.
