One of my favorite Pinterest finds is Skinny Taste‘s simple and delicious recipe for homemade ketchup! For a few years now, I’ve been trying my best to avoid high fructose corn syrup because it’s so bad for us! HFCS is cheap and plentiful and is generally laden with GMOs (genetically modified organisms). If I’m going to have sugar, I want it to be as natural and healthy as possible. No HFCS, no Splenda, no crap like that. I want organic raw sugar! I’m convinced it’s one of the best sweetener choices out there. There are other options like stevia but I generally stick with raw sugar.
Ready to make some delicious, healthy ketchup for your family? Well let’s get to it.
