Recipe – Zesty Tomato Ketchup

We all buy it … But, do you know what is in the bottled ketchup that you buy at the store?    Sugar, Corn Syrup, Preservatives and Way Too Much Salt… 

You can easily make your own with ingredients you most likely already have in your kitchen pantry.    Not only do you save money, you know the quality of what you are getting….

I have been wanting to make my own ketchup for a while…     After an incredibly busy day, I sought the calmness of my kitchen to settle my thoughts… Here’s what resulted…  I love it and hope that you do too….
