Homemade Gluten-Free and Corn-Free Ketchup

Total Time
Prep 5 mins
Cook 25 mins

Perhaps the hardest part of a gluten-free, corn-free diet is the inability to find ketchups on the grocer’s shelves that are safe to use. Here is a recipe that will take less than 1/2 hour to prepare and will keep in the refrigerator for several months. It is idiot-proof, I promise, and tastes good too. In no time at all you will once again be able to enjoy ketchup again.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Bring ingredients to boil on the stove. Simmer 15 minutes, then take ketchup off heat for 10 minutes. Pour into a condiment jar and refrigerate. Makes a little over 4 cups of ketchup.

I think the original poster forgot to include water as an ingredient. I put 2 cups in, added more spices. Some white pepper, more garlic and onion powder, and added salt. I also used a little more sweetener...I chose honey and maple syrup. It's perfect now!

I have been using this to make our own ketchup since June of 2011 because of the corn syrup and white vinegar in store-bought ketchup. While I can't say I like it quite as much as store-bought, it works with our diet. The flavor is okay, but the texture is quite a bit thicker, which some people might enjoy. I will continue to use this recipe. I have found however that the recipe makes closer to 2 cups ketchup and not the 4 cups as stated.

Thank you for sharing this. I love it and we use it in place of our ketchup all the time.
