Recipe Notes

  1. Serving Size: 1 tablespoon
  2. HoneyTip: To make measuring and pouring the honey out of the cup super easy, i.e. it doesn't all stick to the cup, I like to spray the measuring cup or spoon with coconut oil or olive oil spray.
  3. Is this recipe Gluten Free?  This Sugar Free Ketchup recipe is gluten free with the ingredients listed. Check all packaging ingredient labels to ensure that it does not contain gluten
  4. How long can I freeze this Ketchup recipe?  You can freeze this ketchup recipe in an airtight container or freezer bag for up to 9 months. Thaw in the refrigerator.
  5. Can I use tomato sauce instead of tomato paste in this ketchup recipe?  The tomato paste in this ketchup recipe really packs a punch in flavor. However, if you do not have tomato paste, you can use canned tomato sauce. Use 23 ounces of tomato sauce and eliminate the water. Follow the instructions for the remaining ingredients and steps.
