Homemade Ketchup

Standard

Sorry I have been away for a while.  I have mentioned a few times that I have been dealing with some health problems for the past little bit.  At recent trip to my gastroenterologist, she suggested it would be helpful for me to go on a strict Low FODMAP diet for a few weeks and then slowly reintroduce the different food groups back into my diet to see how I react.

All of which makes sense to me but has thrown my regular diet and cooking habits into a little bit of a tailspin.  No onions or garlic? Not even traces of onion powder?  I am lost.

So I have been learning how to cook many different things, and I have been trying a lot of different recipes.  I just haven’t been feeling confident enough in these new techniques and recipes to share them with you.

Until this one. This ketchup is low FODMAP and also delicious.  Have you ever gone to a fancy (or hipster) burger place and gotten House-made Ketchup with your fries?  Well this ketchup tastes pretty close to my memory of that fancy ketchup!

Allow the ketchup to simmer for 20 minutes, stirring fairly often so it doesn’t burn.

Allow the ketchup to cool completely before storing in an airtight container in the fridge.
