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.
