What are your feelings on ketchup?
Like almost every kid I know, my daughter LOVES it. On turkey burgers, french fries, chicken, scrambled eggs and even on ham or turkey hoagies (<–gah.)
As for me – besides using it on the occasional hamburger or hot dog (sometimes I add mustard too – I’m crazy like that) – I can pretty much take it or leave it.
That was until last week when I whipped up a batch of Honey Cinnamon Ketchup and Smoked Sriracha Ketchup with ingredients I already had on hand. In 10 minutes.Make your own ketchup with pantry staples in 10 minutes! @tspbasil Click To Tweet
Holy smokes. Both versions were just exploding with flavor – sweet, acidic, smoky and spicy. I started dreaming up the ways I could use both of them because I couldn’t get over how delicious homemade ketchup really is.
But that’s kind of the point of this month’s Recipe ReDux theme:

Now, admittedly, my 8 year old won’t be giving up her beloved Heinz 57 for Honey Cinnamon Ketchup or Smoked Sriracha Ketchup.
But I think I’ll be saying goodbye to store bought ketchup for myself as these two versions are made from pantry staples, are low sodium and have less added sugar that store-bought versions.
Oh, did I mention how fantastic they taste?
So, are you a ketchup lover or can you live without? What foods do you usually put ketchup on?
