Try It Tuesday...Homemade Ketchup
Ketchup has been the talk of the dinner table around here with my family. I've been trying out different organic ketchups and none of them seem to tickle their taste buds except for the organic Heinz. For some reason, I still keep looking for others to try. Luckily, I came across a quick ketchup recipe in the paper last week and decided to make it with my own little twist. It was so easy to make and it's nice to know the exact ingredients that are in it. It doesn't quite taste like Houston's
ketchup but it sure gives them a run for their money.
