Found on a low carb site. I have not made this recipe.
- 1 (6 ounce) can tomato paste
- 6 ounces cider vinegar
- 1⁄2 teaspoon dry sweetener
- 1 teaspoon onion powder
- 1⁄2 garlic powder
- 1 teaspoon salt, more if desired
- 1⁄8 teaspoon allspice
- 1⁄8 teaspoon pepper
- simmer all ingredients for 15 minutes on low heat.
- cool completely.
- store in refrigerator.
I used this recipe when I was making another and didn't have ketchup. It worked ok, but I wouldn't use it on my burger. I only used 2 ounces of vinegar since most people said 6 ounces was too much. Texture wasn't quite right either. It's good in a pinch though. Thanks for the reicpe.
I made this today. It was very good. I used the suggestion of 3 oz of water and 3 oz of vinegar but it was still too strong for me. I ended up doubling to fix it. So in the future I'll use 1.5 oz (3 T) or less. and the rest with water (1/2 c. + 1 T.). I didn't use onion powder/garlic as I didn't think it was necessary and it sometimes bothers me. I didn't have allspice so I didn't use it either. Still, a very good recipe. It doesn't really need to simmer so long, a few mins or less, just enough to combine. Oh, and I used about 3/4-1 t. stevia powder in it, adjust to your preference.
I used sugar instead of sweetener, but next time I will be using 3 oz of vinegar and 3 oz of water instead of all vinegar b/c it was waaaay too much. It was almost more like cocktail sauce. I love that I can make this for less money than I can buy it and it has no corn syrup or MSG, as I am cutting both completely from my family's diet. Thanks for sharing!
