Homemade Ketchup

Why buy ketchup with so much sodium and sugar when you can make a healthier version at home in no time at all? Try this delicious ketchup recipe and see how great homemade can be.
1 can (5 oz) tomato paste
1/4 cup honey
1/4 cup water
2 tbsp apple cider vinegar
1/2 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp dry mustard
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp salt
In a bowl combine all ingredients and mix well. Store in a clean jar or squeeze-bottle in the refrigerator for up to 1 month. Makes about 1 cup.
My kids love to dip or top their food in ketchup. I think they would eat ketchup with every meal if I let them, but I usually don’t like to give them too much because it’s not the healthiest of condiments. I feel a bit better serving them this homemade version, because you can control what goes into it. I poured it into an empty ketchup bottle and the kids didn’t seem to notice the difference at all. I did, but not in a bad way. I thought this had a fresher and more natural taste to it that was really quite nice.
