Keto Ketchup

Keto is short for Ketogenics. As you probably know, ketchup has a lot of sugar in it which means it has a high carb count. We used to buy Hunt’s ketchup. It shows that there are 5 carbohydrates in 1 tablespoon. I like ketchup with sausage links or patties as well as on a hamburger.

the ketogenic cookbook” written by Jimmy Moore and Maria Emmerich had a recipe for Keto Ketchup which is shown below. This makes 2 cups with a carb count of 2.7 grams per 2 tablespoons in a serving. That’s quite a lot a ketchup for about half the carbs.

Even though you have to cook it, it is fairly simple and very tasty.

1 ½ c. water

    1. I think you are probably right that it will keep longer than 2 weeks. You just need to make sure it is sealed after use and keep an eye out for the beginning of mold.
