  They say that necessity is the mother of invention, and in this instance, they’re right! This homemade ketchup recipe was created because at the time I had no access to healthy ketchup where I lived. So I decided to make my own!

If I’m in a pinch, I will use Organicville brand ketchup. But when you can make your own, it’s so much better. My family (especially the kids) really enjoys this condiment on pretty much anything! It’s great to use in your homemade salad dressings like my french dressing recipe, BBQ sauce, or on its own. Making meatloaf? Use your homemade ketchup!

Kid Approved Homemade Ketchup Recipe

For this recipe, feel free to add or subtract from the ingredients to fit your personal tastes.  Some people like more or less vinegar. Some people add a tiny bit of mustard powder. A friend of mine caramelizes onions and blends those in instead of using onion powder. I’ve even seen fresh apple cider used instead of the water. This makes it a little sweeter without adding any sugar. Win! Below is what works for our family.
