Homemade Fresh Tomato Ketchup

Most store-bought ketchup bottles read –  tomato concentrate from red ripe tomatoes, distilled vinegar, high-fructose corn syrup, corn syrup, salt, spice, onion powder, natural flavouring…and so on. Imagine this going into your kids plate almost daily. HFCS is detrimental for you and your kids health, weight, immunity, gut, brain development, attention and concentration. The more you feed your kids – sugar and processed food, the more you are destroying their health and immunity.
Start making changes now. Just decide and start. You are either feeding a disease in them with the wrong choices or nourishing health with the right choices.
Here’s how to make simple tomato ketchup with basic ingredients in your kitchen sweetened the right way. Its cooked, so the lycopene (a potent antioxidant) gets activated and it has everything to do with health and immunity.

  • Juice of one lemon


  1. Combine the oil, red pepper flakes, sea salt, and garlic in a cold saucepan.
  2. Stir while you heat the saucepan over medium-high heat, sauté just 45 seconds or so until everything is fragrant – you don’t want the garlic to brown.
  3. Stir in the tomatoes, beetroot puree and heat to a gentle simmer. This takes just a couple minutes.
  4. Remove from heat and carefully taste.
  5. If the sauce needs more salt, add it now.
  6. Stir in the lemon.
  7. Mix and let it cool
