Chances are, if you have got even half-baked cooking skills, you’ve tried to make the lot from homemade cakes to pies and brownies.
Nevertheless, there are a few items in your fridge or pantry that you’ve probably never thought about whipping up from scratch on your very own – things so simple that you perhaps never even give them a second thought.
For starters, I am talking about those welcoming condiments – the ‘who-knows-how-old’ packets that gather in your kitchen drawers.
But why not make a meal that’s completely homemade, right down to the ketchup and mayo? It is the only way you will be able to produce the natural, fresh power of those items short of all the added preservers and sugars that come with even organic condiments.
Let’s start with the apparent.
Ketchup is maybe where many of us get our daily dosage of tomatoes. But next time you whip up a batch of homemade chips, ditch that store-bought red sugary gunk and make some of your very own.

Another method by Chocolate Covered Katie calls for the following:
- 3 cups of cherry or grape tomatoes
- ¼ cup of sliced onion
- 1 tablespoon of apple cider vinegar
- ¼ teaspoon of salt
- Sugar to taste (or not)
The recipe teaches you to preheat your oven to 400 ℉, bake the tomatoes and onions for about 45 minutes and then blend with the other ingredients. Cool in the fridge.
