Beer Ketchup

Think making your own ketchup is a task you simply don't want to tackle? Well, this cheater's recipe might make you want to rethink things a bit. This delicious ketchup is waaaay better than Heinz -- but, it doesn't take long at all to whip up as long as you have a few kitchen basics on hand. If you'd prefer a more traditional ketchup, just substitute water for the beer in this recipe.

Beer Ketchup

6 oz tomato paste
1/2 cup beer (you can also use water)
2 T apple cider vinegar
1/4 tsp dry mustard
1/3 tsp salt (or to taste)
pinch of ground cloves
pinch of ground allspice
pinch of nutmeg
pinch of cayenne pepper
pinch of garlic powder
1/8 cup agave nectar (you can sub 1/4 cup brown sugar)

Mix together all ingredients in a medium bowl. Allow to sit for 10-15 minutes, then begin to taste for seasonings. Adjust as desired. Transfer to a glass jar and store in the refrigerator.

Ketchup should keep for 3-4 weeks in the fridge.
