I am on a condiment kick apparently. Tonight it was ketchup. I used raw honey in this version but one could try maple syrup if honey is not part of your lifestyle. The good news... this took all of 1 minute to combine the ingredients and about 90 seconds to heat through on the stove and has no processed sugar in it. Just what a mom wants to hear!
1 small can (6 oz) tomato paste (I used Trader Joe's brand)
1 Tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon raw honey
1/4 cup red wine vinegar
1/8 cup water
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
pink Himalayan salt to taste
ground pepper to taste (just a pinch)
Combine all ingredients in small sauce pan and stir to combine. Heat over medium flame until all ingredients incorporated. Add a bit more water if you like a thinner ketchup or a bit more honey for sweeter.
