Sugar Free Ketchup


I'm not a huge fan of ketchup.
I don't hate ketchup. I just don't eat a lot of the foods that require ketchup on top or on the side. I don't usually eat french fries and burgers for example.

How to Make Sugar Free Ketchup

There are some foods that we all can pretty much acknowledge belong with ketchup.

Sugar Free Ketchup

I remember years ago seeing an expert of some kind on TV who showed just how much sugar is actually in a jar of ketchup. It was devastating as I was French fry person at the time.

I like making my own ketchup for the same reason that I like to make a lot of other foods. I like to know what is in it. I don't like a lot of extra ingredients that may not have to be in there.

I will store this ketchup in a jar in my refrigerator for about a month. It's nice to have around when I am making any kind of loaf- such as a turkey loaf.

Here is what you will need with this recipe

Whole tomatoes




Tomato paste

Coconut Palm Sugar

Extra virgin olive oil

You can make this in a
blender if you want to.
