I'm trying to switch us to a natural/whole foods diet as much as possible (hence the homemade ketchup), but don't know if using corn syrup is defeating my attempt?
I try to avoid all corn syrup. Do you have Trader Joes near you? Their organic ketchup (and I think most other organic ones in general) avoid using any sort of corn syrup. They taste wayyyy better!
