Recipe: Homemade Fries and Ketchup

It all started when I noticed the ketchup bottle was getting low and I didn't have another bottle of ketchup in the pantry. I really didn't want to purchase another over priced, loaded with high fructose corn syrup bottle of ketchup, so I experimented and worked the ingredients until it came out just right.

Homemade Ketchup
1 (4 ounce) can tomato paste
1/4 cup honey
1/8 cup white vinegar
1 teaspoon granulated sugar
1/4 cup water (or more, if needed, if ketchup is too thick)
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon onion powder
1/8 teaspoon garlic powder

I love French fries with ketchup. As I was making the ketchup I kept thinking about how perfect it would be if I could test my homemade ketchup with some hot, salty fries. It really couldn't be that hard right?? I remembered I had pinned a French fry recipe on my Pinterest boards awhile back. Now was my chance to find it and try those French fries. There it was pinned under my Food - Snacks board...Gwyneth Paltrows No-Fry Fries.

Gwyneth Paltrows No-Fry Fries
2 large russet potatoes
2 tablespoons olive oil
3/4 teaspoon coarse sea salt

Peel the potatoes

Cut the potato in half

Using the half piece of potato cut it into smaller strips.

Soak the potato strips in a bowl of cold water for about 5 minutes.

Drain the potato strips.

Dry the potatoes on a clean towel.

Add potatoes to a bowl and drizzle olive oil. Mix well to coat.

Spray the baking sheet with a non stick spray. Put potatoes on a baking sheet and sprinkle with sea salt.

Bake in oven at 450 degrees for 27 minutes.

Now, dip the French fries in your homemade ketchup. Yummo!! It is even healthy and you know exactly what is in it. Not to mention really easy and there is no deep frying mess to clean up.
