I'm obsessed with this sugar-free ketchup I made from scratch.


Homemade Ketchup without sugar

Today I’m going to show you how to make homemade ketchup from scratch.

This sugar-free ketchup is made with fresh tomatoes, onions and apple.

I made this ketchup with fresh tomatoes, but you can make it canned tomatoes or tomato paste (but you’ll need a bit of sweetener in that case).

In a heavy bottomed pan, add the tomatoes, water, diced onions and chopped apple. Bring to a boil, cover and cook over low heat for 40 minutes.

Blend with a hand blender and push through the sieve to remove seeds and tomato skin.

Stir in the apple cider vinegar, tomato paste, mustard and salt to the taste.

Cook over low heat for another 10 minutes, or until thickens to your liking.

Let it cool and transfer to a jar or a squeeze bottle.






  1. Wow Sasha did I get a workout pushing the mixture through the strainer:)! I think I got every drop:) This tastes so good. I’m the only ketchup fan in my home so this will be a great treat. I’ll bet it if u mix it some mayonnaise it will make a wonderful dressing. Thank you for another winning recipe:)

  2. I hate how sweet commercial ketchups are, especially those made with high-fructose corn syrup, which most US brands have. But, with the exception of this one, all the recipes I’ve seen call for a lot of sugar and the weirdest collection of spices: star anise, fennel seed, cloves, etc. Yuck, can’t imagine what those taste like.

  3. This is a winner Sashaaaaaa!!!!! i feel from this version we can turn it in to many different things easily as well. like use some basil for pizza sauce, put some chili powder for sweet chili sauce, and etc….. This is brilliant !!!! Thank you Sashaaa always😍💝
