I have nothing to tell you about. I guess that’s what happens when you spend a week and half indoors with your kid recovering from his tonsillectomy, and then another week just trying to catch up on life, laundry, and the pursuit of blogging. But I guess that’s OK, because today I am bringing you a recipe for ketchup. Yes, plain old ketchup. No fancy flavors. No unique twists. Just ketchup. Is there really a story I could tell you that would actually make this exciting. It’s just ketchup.
But seriously – what I said about it counting as a veggie – totally true. I mean, it’s tomato paste with spices and some vinegar. Pure, concentrated tomato. And plenty of zing, which is totally essential for ketchup, from Spectrum® Brand Organic Filtered Apple Cider Vinegar. Made from organic apples, it brings so much flavor to this simple recipe.
