Last winter my father introduced my three year old son to ketchup and it has been a love affair ever since.  I went from occasionally buying ketchup to always running out! I can’t keep the stuff in the house.  So I researched how to make it myself.  Apparently, at one time ketchup was fermented, but when I’m out of ketchup, I don’t want to wait five days for a new batch.  This recipe is just a mix and go!

A few notes – I tried using 2 Tablespoons of sugar, but it was really sweet. So I cut it down to 1 Tablepsoon in the recipe.  Just adjust to what you like.  I used apple cider vinegar for the first go around, but it has too distinct a flavor. Next time I’ll use just plain old white vinegar.  Finally, this ketchup is pretty thick so feel free to add more water to thin it out.
