homemade ketchup gaps diet

Easy! No corn syrup like supermarket ketchup, and it doesn’t carry the health food store price tag.  Ketchup is a favorite for children and most adults due to the sweet taste- ‘tomato syrup’ is what I’ve heard it referred to among skeptics.  Thankfully, with this recipe you’ll feel good about serving homemade ketchup as often as your family would like it.

  1. Combine all ingredients except the bay leaf in a medium saucepan over medium high heat, bring to a boil, stirring often.
