Homemade ketchup is pretty darn good! I will definitely make it again, however, the convenient store-bought stuff will keep me satisfied if I don’t have the time to make my own.
Ever run out of ketchup before? Yeah, it is not good when you have hot fries ready to eat. It happens to everyone from time to time. I’ll be the first to tell you when it comes to ketchup, Heinz is my go-to bottle and I do not even bat an eye. But, the foodie in me got curious. I didn’t run out, in fact, we had plenty in the pantry and the refrigerator. I wanted to make some for myself. I once heard that if you make your own ketchup, you won’t want any of the store-bought again. I had to know just how good homemade ketchup was.
Most recipes I found called for raw garlic, umm NO. I have tried one too many recipes that make you have dragon breath the rest of the day. I finally found a recipe over at SkinnyTaste.com that sounded worth giving a shot.
I like my ketchup cold, so I refrigerated for at least an hour before serving.
