Ketchup that you buy at the store is usually full of sugar and other processed junk. How about making your own ketchup? Try this easy to make recipe.
- 2 cups tomato juice
- 1-3 tablespoons white vinegar
- honey to taste
- bay leaf (optional)
- salt and pepper to taste
Mix all the ingredients except the honey and simmer on the stove until thick, stirring often to prevent sticking. When almost the desired thickness, add honey to taste and complete cooking. Ladle into sterilised jars and seal immediately or place in small containers and freeze.
