ABC Wednesday - for Ketchup

Hi Everyone! It’s time for our ABC Wednesday meme again. Thanks to Denise Nesbitt and her team. We are now on letter K….are you ready?

K……….is for Ketchup

My youngest son is a ketchup lover. He can’t eat without a ketchup on the table especially for fried chicken, fries, burger, fried fish etc..etc. He always asks for it whenever he’s on the table. Anyhow, I found this photo on, and I also found on how to make ketchup. So I thought, it would be nice if I will share it with you on how to make homemade ketchup.

Homemade Ketchup

Yields: 1/4 cup (4 servings)
Allergy info: soy-free, dairy-free, gluten-free

3 tablespoons tomato paste
1 tablespoon turbinado sugar
2 teaspoons balsamic vinegar
1/8 teaspoon crushed garlic (about 1/2 small clove)
Water to thin
Salt to taste

In a small bowl, combine the tomato paste, sugar, balsamic vinegar and garlic. Add water, 1/4 teaspoon at a time, until the ketchup is the desired consistency. Adjust seasoning, adding salt to taste, and additional sugar or vinegar. Set aside for 15 minutes and serve. Store covered, in the fridge, for up to 7 days.
