If you’ve got little kids, chances are they love ketchup. Actually before kids I firmly told Bill we can’t have a ketchup kid. I can’t deal with the smell of ketchup covered all over them. You know I said that just like I said we will not let them throw tantrums in Target or watch more than a show a day. The truth is my kids don’t eat ketchup on everything, because I haven’t really offered it to them. But they do love it on fries, but who doesn’t it? That’s probably the only thing on my ridiculous- I didn’t know what I was talking about- list that actually came to be.
Here’s the deal: I love this ketchup. It’s nothing like the bottled kind that can sit out all day. It’s bursting with flavor! I had some at Lyfe Kitchen and had to try to recreate it at home. I serve it with sweet potato fries. They are delicious fried in coconut oil ( a great high heat oil) or if you don’t have time buy some organic sweet potato fries and pop them in the oven.
Here’s the recipe:
- 1 (6) oz can of tomato paste
- 2/3 cup of water
- 1 Tablespoon of cider vinegar
- 2 tablespoons of honey
- 1/8 teaspoon of ground cloves (if your family doesn't like things spicy do just a small sprinkle of cloves)
- 1/8 teaspoon of nutmeg
- 1/4 teaspoon of onion powder.
- Stir together over medium heat.
- Bring to boil while stirring.
- Once it's boiled, let it simmer for 3 minutes until thick.
- Store in the refrigerator covered. Keeps for 5-7 days.
