OK….. maybe you should read more than one. Because quite frankly, there are lots of great ways to make a darn good sugar free Paleo ketchup. This one however is lovely for a few reasons:
1.) Because it has nutmeg in it.
2.) Because it is my first video (where off camera I was caught cursing and laughing more times than I care to admit).
3.) Because it’s EASY and TASTY.
So why would you take the time to make your own condiments?
This is where you should take a pause, run to your refrigerator and pull out your store bought ketchup.
Now read the ingredients (it’s OK, I’ll wait for you!). Most likely you’ll find high fructose corn syrup listed….and that’s a big yuk. For more info on high fructose corn syrup and the effects it has on your body and your family’s check out this article:
Making your own is easy, just takes a few minutes and keeps in the fridge for week. (Not as good of a shelf life as the store bought, but seriously worth it knowing that you are feeding the peeps in your life quality food!)
Yeild: 1.5 cups
6oz Tomato Paste
2oz Apple Cider Vinegar
1/3 cup Water
1/2 Tsp Dry Mustard
1/4 Tsp Nutmeg
1/2 Tsp Kosher Salt
1/4 Tsp Cloves
1/4 Tsp Allspice
Place all ingredients in a bowl and mix well. Put in a covered container and let sit in the refrigerator overnight so that the flavours can mingle. It will be ready the next day. Enjoy this with almost anything you make!…My favourite is a thick grass fed beef burger.
What’s yours? I’d love to hear from you in the comments!
