With a 4 and 5 year old at home I am never without ketchup in the house.  I went through a couple of attempts before getting 2 thumbs up from both my kids.  Here’s the winning recipe!


  • 6 ounce can no salt added tomato paste
  • 1/4 to 1/3 cup filtered water (depending on desired consistency, I used 1/4 cup)
  • 2 tbsp white vinegar
  • 1/4 tsp dry mustard
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 pinch cloves
  • 1 pinch allspice
  • 1 pinch cayenne pepper
  • 1 tsp molasses
  • 1 - 2 tbsp brown rice syrup
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • salt to taste


  1. Place all the ingredients in a medium sized bowl and whisk until throughly combined.
  2. It is best to let the ketchup sit overnight in the fridge to blend the flavors but it can be used right away if needed.
  3. Store in an airtight container in the fridge.
