Natural Ketchup made Easy!

More ideas for a nutritious cookout! Don't know if you have read the ingredients for store bought ketchup but it is loaded with sugar plus other junk type ingredients. Now, you can make your own and cut the sugar. Have fun making this ketchup to add to your wonderful summer of grilled food.

We have made our ketchup and put it in a mason jar in the fridge.

Tangy Ketchup from "Delicious Meets Nutritious" Cookbook (click here to see more!)
I can manually adjust cookbook shipping costs. Feel free to call me, if you are interested in this cookbook. :)

1 6oz. can tomato paste
1 8 oz. can tomato sauce
1/4 cup water
1/4 cup Xagave (click here!)
1 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. cumin
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1/2 tsp. onion powder
1/2 tsp. chili powder
Pinch of cinnamon (optional)
3 tbsp. cider vinegar
3 tbsp. white wine vinegar

Mix all ingredients in your Bosch blender and blend until smooth. Store in a plastic squeeze bottle.

Will store in the refrigerator for several weeks.

Tips and Notes:
For a sweeter ketchup, add extra Xagave. For a spicy version, cayenne pepper give it a bit more kick.

The best part of using Xagave is that it is about 1/2 the calories of the leading brand ketchup! Most ketchup are filled with high fructose corn syrup! Now you can enjoy ketchup without all the sugar.

Stay tune for more cookout ideas!
