Heinz ketchup – Plant Bottle

Nearly two years ago I compared ketchup brands, to see if I could find a ketchup that tasted as good as Heinz. I could not. To me, there is no ketchup that can beat it.

What I have pleasantly come across recently is the fact that Heinz now uses bottle made from plants. They’ve launched a little ‘Guess what my bottle is made of?’ campaign in support of Earth day. Using 30% plant based bottles is a good positive step. Now I can feel good about spending a little bit extra for my ketchup because I’ll have no other.

I think a lot of companies are finally starting to change their ways which is good. I’ve always recycled bottles, but who knows how many plastic containers still end up in land fills. Some areas still don’t even have government run recycling programs. Imagine that.

Anyhow,this was  just a little update on Heinz ketchup.

Here’s an easy meatball sauce recipe that I love. The main ingredient is Heinz tomato ketchup. Try it out, it’s delicious.

All you need is a cup of ketchup, 1/2 cup brown sugar, 2 tbsp white vinegar and 1 tbsp margarine. You may add more brown sugar and vinegar to taste. I don’t actually measure anything, but it’s sooo good I had to share. Stir all the ingredients over medium-low heat in a pot. Once heated and melted through, pour the sauce over your favourite tasty homemade meatballs(or store bought ones if you prefer).
