Ketchup, catsup, call it what you will

Right now, we're using Meijer Organics ketchup. It does have vinegar, and I have no idea if the vinegar they're using is corn derived as I haven't called on it yet. I haven't noticed any reactions, but then maybe I haven't been observant enough- you never know.

I did call about the regular Meijer ketchup, labelled "no high fructose corn syrup". It does have "natural flavors" and those ARE corn derived according to Mr. Storm. He said that this is so it can be gluten free- which is fantastic, if you're gluten free.

I've been thinking about making my own, but haven't gotten around to it yet. Anyone have a recipe they'd like to share?


  1. We love Jessica Seinfield's recipe! It's delicious, has hidden veggies, and we haven't made it since being "corn free," in quotes cuz it's like a joke. But I'm sure it can be done since it's homemade. Plaining on making some today, actually, I'll get you the recipe!

  2. As promised...
    6oz tomato paste
    1/2 cup carrot puree
    1/4 cup water
    2 tablespoons apple-cider vinegar
    2 cloves minced garlic
    1 T brown sugar
    1/2 t dry mustard
    1/4 t allspice
    1/4 t or to taste chili powder
    Combine all and bring to a boil, reduce to simmer about 15-20 min until reduced to half. It says 5 days in fridge, 3 months in freezer.
