Did you know it’s basically impossible to find a clean ketchup? Most brands have a laundry list of ingredients.
When quality ingredient products are on the more expensive side and it’s something I can do myself, I like saving the money.. I thought it’d be best to make my own ketchup.
So, of course I researched different variations and recipe presentations. Here is what I found:
CAN YOU FREEZE HOMEMADE KETCHUP?
Yes, you can! While ketchup will only last about 2-3 weeks in the fridge, you can make a big batch and freeze it up to 6 months!
HOW LONG DOES HOMEMADE KETCHUP LAST?
So a batch of this doesn’t last long around here, but I’ve had it last as long as 3 weeks. Just to be safe, however, I would say don’t keep it over 2 weeks.
HOW TO THICKEN HOMEMADE KETCHUP
If your ketchup is too runny, I promise it’ll be okay. You can use a little bit (about 1 tbsp.) or organic cornstarch or arrowroot powder (my personal favorite). But don’t just stir it into your ketchup! You’ll want to dissolve it in a bit of water first. Once it’s totally dissolved, you can add it to your ketchup.
