Homemade Low-Carb Ketchup

Yes, regular store bought Ketchup contains actually quite a bit of sugar, up to 5g of sugar in a single tablespoon! I’ve tried most of the sugarfree versions that are out there and have been rather disappointed. I’ve found that I get a tastier and healthier (and much cheaper!) version when I make it myself with my Homemade Low-Carb Ketchup recipe. You can spice it up as it suits you with more chili and enjoy only 1g netcarbs per tablespoon!
