Welcome to how to make a healthy homemade Heinz Ketchup in the soup maker recipe.
Like many other 80’s babies I grew up around the Heinz brand. There were the cans of spaghetti in tomato sauce, the baked beans, the pasta hoops, the soup and of course the tomato ketchup.
Who can not forget the tomato ketchup? It was everywhere and in the old days there was always this joke that it was a nightmare getting the last few bits out of the bottle. This was because it was before the squirty plastic ones and you had to hammer the bottom to get it out.
Now when you look at those old glass bottles of Heinz tomato ketchup it always feels vintage now.
But as I embraced the Paleo lifestyle last year and eating more and healthier I was struck by the high amounts of bad things that you find it jars of sauce. From way too much salt to huge amounts of sugar they are the kind of foods that are secretly damaging our health. This is because we naturally salt or sugar our food so to be eating sugar and salt that we are not aware of is just making us worse.
Now since doing Paleo and cutting out these foods whenever I eat them I hate the taste because my body is just not used to them. This applies to a lot of sauces and not just Heinz Tomato Ketchup for example I have the worst feeling when I have low quality soy sauce in my food due to the high salt.
But what I wanted to achieve was a really healthy tomato ketchup that I could make and then leave in my fridge and then use it as I wanted it. This was particularly good for recipes that I would normally add tomato ketchup to such as meatloaf and Hawaiian food.
So here it is, my healthy homemade version of tomato ketchup.

In the soup maker place the onion, tinned tomatoes, fresh tomatoes, garlic puree and salt and pepper with 150ml of water. Cook for 15 minutes or until your onions and tomatoes are tender.
Drain the ingredients and place them back in the soup maker with the seasoning, maple syrup and the vinegar. Blast for a couple of minutes and test it. If you need a little bit more sweetness increase the maple syrup or if it is too sweet for your taste add a little bit more tomato.
Place into a jar and fridge.
Serve once it is cold.
The wonderful thing about this tomato ketchup is that you get the lovely sweet flavour naturally from the maple syrup and it makes a fantastic healthy option to give your kids.
