If you’re struggling without ketchup, then this paleo ketchup recipe will save you! This recipe is pretty easy to cook up and should keep for at least a couple of weeks in the fridge.

Paleo Ketchup

If you’re like me, this was one of the first things to go from the cupboard because most store-bought varieties are loaded with sugar and artificial preservatives and flavors.

Unfortunately, ketchup was also one of my favorite condiments so making a paleo friendly version was on the top of my list of items to replace. This recipe is a bit different from the store-bought varieties but still tastes amazing.

This ketchup goes amazingly well with some of our paleo sweet potato fries. It also goes great with pretty much any recipe where ketchup is a must!

Cooking Tips

  • If you want a thicker or thinner paleo ketchup, then simply adjust the water. More water would make it thinner while less would make it thicker.
  • If you do love a bit of sweetness to your ketchup, then you can try adding some honey. I would start off with one tablespoon and keep tasting and adding more until you get it to something that suits your needs. Keep in mind while honey is paleo friendly it’s important not to go too overboard with it if you’re looking to lose weight.
  • Store any leftover ketchup in the fridge for later use. Make sure the container is sterile, and you don’t store it hot. Storing it hot will allow condensation to form and will encourage mold to grow on the food.
