Ketchup

KETCHUP



My youngest son, Jonathan, prefers using the spicy dressing below instead.  It's so easy to make one's own.  I would suggest freezing half of it for longer storage.

51/2 oz tomato paste (156 mL)
1/2 cup water (125 mL)
1/3 cup granular sweetener (75 mL)
3 tbsp white vinegar (45 mL)
1/2 tsp onion salt (2 mL)
1/2 tsp salt (2 mL)
1/4 tsp garlic powder (1 mL)
1/8 tsp black pepper (0.5 mL)

In blender, combine tomato paste, water, granular sweetener, white vinegar, onion salt, salt, garlic powder and black pepper.  Blend until smooth.  (Or simply combine by whisking with wire whisk)
