Swapping Bought For Made

We all know that sometimes bought items such as ketchup can contain a lot of nasties. We wanted to explore making some loved items and then taste testing and comparing against their shop bought alternatives. We wanted to see whether making these items was better then buying - or not!

As part of our Foodie Focus we did just that - inviting people to suggest store cupboard staples that could be made rather than bought!

For those who took part, we asked them to rate how homemade faired against bought (with a rating of 1-5… 5 being highest)

  • How did it taste?
  • How easy was it to make?
  • How cost effective it was?
  • Was it healthier?
