Ketchup
« on: August 11, 2013, 11:02:55 AM »
Can anyone recommend a good sugar free ketchup?   Looks like Nature's Hollow ( the people who make that good syrup) have one, but I don't know if it's any good.  It's a little pricey.

I'll probably have to make my own....   but I just don't feel like it.

Aaaaagghhhh! Stupid iPad just killed my long post.


Long post short, I keep this on hand. I know you said you don't want to make it, but its easy and suggest adding Cinnamon if you like a more Smokey flavor. Might try Walden Farms on store bought ketchup? I know they make Sugar free Pancake syrup, not sure if its WB compliant, but worth researching to see if they also have Ketchup. HTH.

That looks pretty easy.  Any guess on how long that would stay good in the fridge?

Rita,


I would go three weeks tops. If you don't think you'll use it often, cut the Recipe in half. I used to be a Heinz ketchup fiend and since starting Wheat Belly, I rarely even think about added sauces like Ketchup, but I have enjoyed having this on hand in a pinch and I'm sure someone coud take this base and figure out how to make a BBQ sauce also.


Someone who is a more seasoned cook may have a more accurate shelf-life suggestion.  :)

I have a BBQ sauce recipe that we like a lot. It has honey in it, so if you NEVER eat honey, you'll have to adjust it. I'll post it under Recipes.

Rita....I've ordered and tried most of Nature Hollow's condiments....BBQ sauce, ketchup and maple syrup (which was high carb!).....and while good, they were pricey. I now make my own maple syrup (easy) and BBQ sauce.....now will try the ketchup recipe posted today!

I actually "stole" this recipe from another who creates and posts awesome LC recipes. I will try and find out......


Just got a reply from the creator, and she says...................


"It seems to keep for a very long time or at least I've never had any go bad. I've had some in the fridge for many weeks or even a couple of months or longer and it was still good. I kind of lose track because I don't use ketchup that often. I do put the date on the top of the jar and I just checked my latest batch. I made it in June and it's still fine."
