This is simplicity itself. To reduce the sodium content simply omit the salt.To reduce the sugar content replace the brown sugar with 1-teaspoon molasses and 1/4 cup granulated Splenda.Regular ketchup is full of things you don't even want to know about. I found this recipe on Hillbilly Housewife site.

I made this recipe because I couldn't go to the store to buy ketchup so I made it. I needed ketchup for a recipe and it was perfect. Maybe the taste is not exactly like store-bought ketchup but for a recipe that's great. Thanks Gloria :) Made for cookbook tag game

I'm sorry, but this ketchup was just not to our liking. The cinnamon just did not belong. I tried to fix it up by adding onion and garlic powder, but just couldn't lose the cinnamon flavor. Thanks anyway!

This was just what I was looking for as a replacement to store bought HFCS ketchups. I quadrupled the recipe and filled an old ketchup bottle (36 oz with just a little bit leftover). I also used a hand blender and added about 1/2 C water total so it would go through the funnel a little bit more easily. The kids loved it!
