Copycat Heinz Ketchup

I found the honey to really add a very nice sweetness, almost floral hint to the ketchup. I really liked that. And the celery seed also added a really nice twist. I love celery seed, I use it in a lot of sauces but mostly in meat rubs. Start with a little and see how you like the flavor before adding the full 1/4 teaspoon.

I also made a french fry dipping sauce the other day that is rather nice if I say so myself. Check it out! And nothing, absolutely nothing, is better than a copycat of the classic McDonald’s hamburger topped with homemade Heinz ketchup!
