Keto Homemade Ketchup

Homemade Ketchup With a Kick

I was making these amazing spiced goat cheese stuffed meat cups and I wanted to serve it with ketchup.  I am NOT a huge ketchup fan, but sometimes you just need it!

So I spent a few minutes to come up with my very own keto ketchup recipe.

I had my hubby try it and he says "It tastes like ketchup".  I was happy with that answer.

Then at dinner when he added it to his meat cup (like I asked him to because I wanted his opinion on the "complete meal"), he again said "It tastes like ketchup".

So I called him on it and asked what that even meant.  He said, "Honey, I HATE ketchup with a passion.  This tastes like ketchup, that's all I can tell you".  Ok, fine!

However, as much as he "hates ketchup", he kept adding more to his dinner.  I'll take that too!

Now one thing I will say is that if you are used to that high sugar and high HFCS type of ketchup, then the real thing will take a moment to get used to.

If your taste buds have already changed through the course of your keto lifestyle, then you won't notice a difference.

Many homemade ketchup recipes are pretty high in vinegar.  Mine is not.  There is a small amount of Apple Cider Vinegar in mine.

The common spices are there as well.  But what sets mine apart is the little kick it has.  My secret ingredient is a smidgen of sriracha!  Not enough to make it too spicy, but just enough to give it a little kick!

How to Make Homemade Ketchup

It is so incredibly simple to make homemade ketchup.  You literally just need to throw all the ingredients into a blender or food processor and blend until smooth and creamy!

That's it!  Some people heat theirs on the stove for a while, but not me!

How should I store homemade ketchup?

Homemade ketchup is best stored in an airtight glass container in the refrigerator.  I suggest not storing it past 1 week which is why this only makes 1 cup worth.

I imagine it would last longer, but fresh, homemade food tends to spoil faster because it is not processed!

Is Ketchup Keto Friendly?

Not your regular run-of-the-mill ketchup off the shelf at the grocery store.  Those are pretty high in carbs.  Even keto ketchup carbs can add up if you are just dumping it on your food!

A little keto ketchup here and there is just perfect!

This ketchup is 2 total carbs per 1 tablespoon serving.  So enjoy!

    1. I’m sure it lasts longer. But given that I do not have a lab in my kitchen to prove exactly how long it is good for, my general recommendation for stored foods is up to a week 🙂
