I have always been a fan of the homemade ketchup that I have had at all the fun brunch places in the city. Since the store bought ketchup is filled with preservatives and high fructose corn syrup I figured it’s the guilt free foodie cuties job to change that. My version is so good you will eat it out the jar. Its low sugar but you would have no idea.
2 (6oz) Cans of tomato paste
¾ Cups of apple cider vinegar
2 ½ Cups Water
1 Tbsp Onion Powder
1 Tbsp Garlic Power
2 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon or all-spice
Place all ingredients in a pot and mix well. Cook uncovered at a low simmer for about an hour until it is at the thickness you desire. Allow it to cool and then place in a jar in the fridge. It should last at least 3 weeks.
As always, feel free to take it up to the next level and get creative. Try making it spicy or adding some fun spices and give it your own spin.
Ketchup does not need to only be a condiment, try using it in some fun recipes like my family’s favorite honey chicken.
Good Morning! This sounds delicious! Hugs, Nancy Have a great day!

Give it a try!
Looks great, but I wouldn’t use that much ketchup in 3 weeks. Do you think I could freeze some of it?
I have actually still had a jar of it for 2 months and it been great. I think the vinegar helps keep it similar to pickling. But freezing would be fine just make sure to drain any liquid off after you defrost it.
Alright, I am going to make this when I go home for Christmas! It’s a must make! 🙂
Thanks!!! Let me know what you think!!!!!
Awesome recipe! Just wondering if you can use tomatoes in place of tomato paste?
I don’t think that will work. Tomato taste is what is need to make it thick. You can get a small can for under $1 at the store. Being gluten free it is a great substitute for any thickening agent in sauce.
