    I really try to avoid high fructose corn syrup, but ketchup has always been one of those items I eat anyway. Nice to have an easy recipe for making this healthier! And congrats on raising so much money for St. Jude’s!

    I buy ketchup from the health food store that uses sugar instead of corn syrup, but no sugar is better. I don’t have brown rice syrup. Do you think agave would work?

    [Reply]

    Amy Reply:

    @Linda, I know that you can buy agave sweetened ketchup so I’m sure it would. Just taste and adjust as needed. Brown rice syrup has a different flavor than agave, deeper and earthier. And, I think that agave is sweeter than brown rice syrup. Maybe someone else has some thoughts on the differences, too.

    The Ketchup looks wonderful! I’d never thought about it as being something with so much sugar, but I’m sure it does! I also don’t remember the last time I ate any, as it was never my favourite thing.

    I honestly thought the food fest was this week – keep forgetting about your Thanksgiving! Anyways, it looks like a wonderful giveaway =D.

    @Lauren, When I read about your Thankgiving I wondered if I had somehow made a huge mistake – I think we all feel so connected that we forget we’re in different parts of the world. Neat, huh?

    @Amy, So very true! In so many ways, Canada and the States are a lot alike, but we’ve got certain things that make us worlds apart! Not to mention, most of the time it feels like we could just reach through the screen and say hello – makes the distance not so far =D.

I’m thankful for you, Amy Green and all you’ve done for me since I found your blog this past summer. You’re a very special person and I pray you receive as much as you give.

I also love that it’s sugar-free! Thanks so much for sharing–can’t wait to try it!

    Tomatoes are coming on in my garden now, more and more every day. I’m going to try this with fresh tomatoes, but I think I’ll omit the sweetener altogether. Who says ketchup has to be sweet? I love the taste of tomatoes! Maybe I’ll wimp out, but maybe not. Thanks for a great recipe.

    [Reply]

    Amy Reply:

    @Susan, This ketchup isn’t sweet – the brown rice syrup just balances out the acid in the tomatoes. If you have home grown tomatoes and they’re really sweet it’s possible you won’t need anything at all. :)

    My son was recently diagnosised with Type II diabetes and ketchup is like a vegtable not a condiment to him. This recipe looks great but my question is, I found several different organic brown rice syrups at my health store but they all had alot of sugar in them. Does the sugar cook out of the recipe? I asked a one of the nutrition specialists at the store about the sugar content and they did not sell a sugar free version of the syrup and she was not sure if the syrup cooked out or not and she was not sure of a substitution. If the sugar does not cook out, can sugar free honey be used as a substitute?….I did find a bottle of low carb ketchup that had less than I gram of sugar, but it was $2.99 for a very small bottle and my son does like it, but the bottle does not last long. I have found other recipes but they all call for artifical sweetners and I would rather not go that route either. Any info you can give me on this would be greatly appreciated.

    Amy Reply:

    @Diane Nicoloff, There is a form of sugar in brown rice syrup. I have found that I can use brown rice syrup instead of white sugar and not have a toxic “I can’t get enough food” reaction. There is sugar in the tomatoes, too. I use natural alternatives to white sugar, not artificial chemical alternatives. You can always try to make this and use stevia instead of brown rice syrup – just use a little at a time until it tastes the way you’d like. It’s potent.

    Very anxious to make this recipe! The first ketchup I made with another recipe was too much trouble! I’m also wondering if there is a suitable sub for the brown rice syrup. Rice products make my arthritis flare up. I can have stevia, coconut palm sugar or maple syrup. Is maple syrup a good sub for the brown rice syrup?

    [Reply]

    @Susan, I would use the coconut palm sugar instead of maple syrup. You also might use some coconut palm sugar and add stevia to taste. Just play with it until you find the best combination for you.

    Anyone know where to get organic tomato puree that isn’t canned? The lining in cans has a chemical that acts like a synthetic estrogen and the acid in tomatoes leaches it pretty badly into the food. *SIGH* The things they do to our food! Garrr.

    I’m a little confused. I’ve been diagnosed as a border-line diabetic. I was happy to come across your recipe titled ” Homemade Sugar-Free Ketchup Recipe “. I came across one of the ingredients that I did not know, so I clicked the link to find out more info. The ingredient was 1/4 cup organic brown rice syrup. The website had the label listed. It said 2 tbs contained 22 grams of sugar. 1/4 cup would be 44 grams of sugar in a sugar- free recipe. Why is this ?
    Thanks
