Low Sodium Ketchup Recipe

If you need to control your salt intake, this ketchup is a tasty substitute that won't leave you feeling like you are taste-deprived.


* 2 C no salt added tomato paste
* 2 Cups water
* 1/2 Cup sugar
* 1/2 Cup vinegar
* 1 onion, chopped
* 1 stalk celery, chopped
* 2 tsps. brown sugar
* pinch cloves
* pinch cinnamon
* 2 Tbsp. butter
* pinch basil, crushed
* pinch tarragon, crushed
* pinch freshly ground
* black pepper
* 1 tsp. molasses


Mix first 6 ingredients in blender. Place in large saucepan on stove. If blender is not available, proceed with cooking and run through a strainer and cheesecloth at the end of the cooking procedure. Add remaining ingredients to saucepan.

Simmer over low to medium heat until reduced by half, stirring occasionally to prevent sticking. Let cool.

Refrigerate in sealed containers. May be canned if desired.

Yield: Makes 4 servings
