Ketchup

Posted by lotsalittlelambs

I just wanted ketchup on my hotdog! This is one thing I miss… So, here is my homemade sugar free ketchup recipe! I liked it, and most of my kids liked it. But one complained about it ‘burning’ her mouth. I served it hot the night I made it… and it does have a pretty good tang from the apple cider vinegar. I think it tastes ‘real’ and I don’t want flavorless ketchup! 🙂 But, cut down the apple cider vinegar if it is too much for you..

I did have second thoughts about sharing my recipe… because I have also added this ketchup ready made, to my store to sell…

Ketchup, sugar free, 7oz.

So if you don’t want to make it…. 🙂

But, here is the recipe! This would be a FP if following THM.

Ketchup
2 6ounce cans tomato paste
3 empty tomato paste cans of water
12 Tablespoons apple cider vinegar
9 Tablespoons Powdered Sweetener https://lotsalittlelambs.com/powdered-sweetener/ (or you can use Gentle Sweet from THM)
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon glucomannan

Instructions: put all ingredients into the blender or vitamix. Blend well. Transfer to a small saucepan and bring to a boil.

Makes about 2 pints or 4 half pint jars.

You could also water bath these, to have ready made ketchup in your pantry.

    What brand would you compare this to? As in pre-thm? I grew up using Heinz and others similiar to that and I’m scared to make a whole batch and have myself and the kiddos not cate for it. I’m a scaredy cat to try something new but now that I’m aware of all the ingredients in a bottle of ketchup, well yuck! Lol

      Not sure. I’ve never really payed attention to different brands. I always shop 2 ways… by the cheapest and by the healthiest. Sorry. That doesn’t help much…

    How long will this keep/store in the refrigerator (air-tight)?

      Well, I am not sure. It hasn’t gone bad on me. I use it up pretty fast with 11 kids. I did have the last batch over a week and still seemed good. I’m hoping it will last quite awhile with the vinegar… But have yet to test that!

      I would probably water bath about 15 minutes…
