Quick-and-Easy Paleo Ketchup

Quick-and-Easy Paleo Ketchup

Ah… condiments. One of the adjustments to going Paleo is that you can’t just ingest anything off the shelf anymore. If you look at the ingredient list on your bottle of Heinz ketchup, you will notice scary things like food coloring, sugar, high fructose corn syrup, wheat. Even the organic, all-natural brands will use sweeteners that are not Paleo-friendly (cane sugar).┬áThere is good news, though. Homemade Paleo ketchup is not hard to make at all. I will be exploring some more in-depth and rich ketchup recipes in the coming weeks but here is a really quick and easy one that you can have in a matter of minutes.
