Kids love ketchup. Of course many of them do as ketchup is loaded with sugar or corn syrup. I dislike most they are selling in stores excluding the various paleo friendly on-line stores offering healthier versions of paleo ketchup. You cannot go wrong making fresh homemade ketchup in your very own kitchen from scratch. Of course, it’s even better if it is an easy recipe like the one below. Now that’s my go-word, “easy”!
Now is the time for barbecue, sitting by the pool and all the outdoor fun that comes with summer time in the USA. We also find ourselves nibbling and dipping and again nibbling and dipping, and of course some people more than other are drinking. To offer or bring healthy options to the table makes for a much more comfortable belly, better blood sugar and let’s not forget to mention a much easier time the following day. There is just nothing quite as bad as waking to a toxic overload. I hate that and so I do not like my guests to feel that way either.
I have friends that love to eat ketchup with their eggs and ham, or as a side with their breakfast. MY grandson is a French-fry addict and there is nothing better than dipping away as far as he is concerned. There is NO way I want him to have Heinz ketchup, and lucky for us he is open to substitutions. He loves a little spice too, so this easy recipe comes in handy for all kids.
One of the greatest things about this paleo friendly recipe is that it can be adjusted in case there is a preference for a sweeter or spicier version, or both! The world of spices is at our finger tips and that is the beauty in creating recipes for this exciting season.
