By making your own KETCHUP, you can reduce the amount of salt, as well as eliminating additives. Stored tightly covered in the refrigerator, the ketchup will keep well for about two weeks. If you want add 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes and 1 tablespoon cocoa powder. this gives it a different taste.
