I am picky about my ketchup and this has a very delicious taste. Being on Atkins I can assure you that this is low in carbs. There is no way it can be high. For the amount you use it is minimal. It is really good with cheeseburgers and steak. My dh even liked it and that is a stretch because he is a Heinz man like me. Give it a try I am sure you will love it. Wonderful job gingerkitten!!!

Thank you so much for posting this,you are saving me big bucks. The stuff they sell in the stores is so expensive. I have made this recipe twice. The first time it was too peppery for me, but think that is just my taste. The only other adjustment I made was to make it without the Splenda, then let it cool and add the Splenda when it was cooled (to me Splenda cooked into things has an odd aftertaste).

I used Xylosweet (Xylitol) instead of splenda as it is a healthier choice, and sweetened to taste. Other than that, it is a good recipe.

This was pretty good. I simmered the mixture for several hours and it still did not get very thick so I added about 1/4 c of tomato paste and it worked beautifully. This was also much too sweet for our taste and I ended up having to add more cider vinegar and more tomato sauce to temper the sweetness. The spices were very nice though and with my additions I will definitely make this again!

Great catsup recipe for anyone! We are on the South Beach Diet and it is perfect for us, but the taste is just right, I love the mix of spices, and I will use it in any recipes that call for catsup and the whole family will like it. Thanks, Carole in Orlando

I made half recipe using only 8 ouces Hunts tomato sauce (3 grams carbs per 1/4 cup). This put carb count for 1 tbs at 1.7 grams - less than half of catsup's usual 4 grams. A very good catsup substitute for those watching their carbs. The flavorings were just right, but the final product was not as red as catsup (who cares?) Nice job, GingerKitten!
