Homemade Condiments: 4 Variations of Homemade Ketchup
My kids, like most, will eat pretty much anything if I allow them to dip it in ketchup. Yes, even things like broccoli, cauliflower, and zucchini. But if my goal is to get them to eat their veggies, do I really want them to load up on all the sugar in the bottled stuff?
Then let’s talk about burgers and fries. I’m all about just a basic patty topped with cheese, and who doesn’t love French fries? But if I am taking the time to make my own burgers with good beef and extra deliciousness, or cutting and seasoning potatoes or sweet potatoes, then baking them to crispy fry perfection, I want to slather, smear, and dip with something a little more special and with a lot more flavor.
This is why I began making one of my favorite kitchen hacks – homemade ketchups! Simply start with a can of Tuttorosso Tomato Paste, then open up your pantry and find an abundance of herbs, spices, vinegars, and more to make these amazing ketchup recipes. And the best part is that you are controlling the ingredients. Tuttorosso canned tomatoes contain tomatoes, and not a laundry list of other ingredients. Plus they are free or all major allergens, are vegan, and the cans have non-BPA liners.
Just use the Store Locator to find Tuttorosso near you, or their products can also show up on your doorstep if you purchase from Amazon.
Then get ready to make your own homemade condiments!
I started first by making a classic version of Homemade Ketchup.
For deeper, richer flavor, it’s Balsamic Ketchup.
With a little Italian flair, this version of these homemade condiments if perfect with Italian Herb Oven Fries, Cornmeal Crusted Asparagus, or these Oven Fried Garlic Parmesan Green Beans from Sugar Free Mom.
Kick it up with Buffalo Ketchup.
And finally there’s savory steakhouse flavor in Worcestershire Ketchup.
It is the key to adding flavor to Worcestershire Blue Cheese Burgers, and tastes fabulous with Herbes de Provence Baked Sweet Potato Fries. Or how about using it to top Grilled Bacon Wrapped Hot Dogs from Foodie with Family?
And now I’m giving you all of the recipes for these homemade condiments in one place!
