Homemade Ketchup for Passover Recipe

Passover is a time our community focuses a lot on food–family traditions, the seder dinner and which products are, and are not, kosher for Passover. But this holiday can also be a time to make healthier choices and ditch some of that extra sugar in your diet.

This homemade ketchup is Passover-friendly and sugar-free. It also cooks up in no time so you might find yourself whipping up batches of this all year long. You can easily double or triple the recipe to make larger quantities.
