For the month of February, I gave myself a challenge: Don't buy any groceries except dairy products for the entire month.
And then, within just a few days...I had run out of ketchup and I was cursing myself for being so dumb. WHAT was I thinking?
Then, I realized that trying out homemade ketchup has been on my to-do for a very long time and I just had never gotten around to it. Now seemed the perfect time since it was either go without for an entire month or get it done.
I got it done.
And then Matt tasted it.
And now I will probably have to 'get it done' for the rest of my days.
This is a winning recipe...tastes delicious. Lacks the high fructose corn syrup. Whips up in about five minutes or less. Uses simple ingredients that you likely already have in your cupboard.
Makes about 1 1/2 pints.
