Paleo Ketchup Recipe

Ketchup (or Catsup) is so common a condiment that we often forget it’s not Paleo! In fact, if you look at a bottle of Heinz Tomato Ketchup, you’ll find that it’s loaded with high fructose corn syrup, corn syrup, and “natural flavorings” (I always find this rather suspicious as it could mean a lot of different things).

The solution? Make your own Paleo ketchup! When I first decided to make Paleo ketchup, I thought it was going to be a ton of work, but it turned out to be remarkably simple. This Paleo ketchup recipe is my favorite one – there’s a great mix of spices to make it really flavorful.

Amazing TIP: In case you miss it in the recipe, I also added in little bit of gelatin (it makes it a tiny bit thicker but doesn’t really change the consistency even when refrigerated, but provides some added health benefits!).

Could you use Knox gelatin powder or perhaps chia seeds?

    Louise - June 28

    Yep – they should be fine as long as they don’t contain anything other than gelatin. You actually don’t need to add this to the ketchup – I like to add it just to boost the nutritional benefit of ketchup. The recipe will work just fine without it 🙂

Why use gelatin at , what use is it

    It’s just to add extra nutrition into the ketchup. You can omit it.
