Crockpot Ketchup (Easiest recipe ever!)

crockpot ketchup

I’ve never ventured into the homemade ketchup business. Honestly, I’ve been a little scared that my kids wouldn’t like it. I buy organic Heinz ketchup at Costco, and that’s been just fine until now. This amazing sauce is like a cross between ketchup and BBQ sauce–tangy, but not too tangy. Sweet, but not too sweet. Perfect, really. It’s so simple, you literally throw everything into the crockpot and fuh-get about it! I have officially been converted to homemade ketchup!

    I’m interested in trying this Shanti but need to make a substitution for the coconut sugar. It is as sweet as brown or white sugar, or what about honey?

      Ketchup freezes well but does dry out a little similar to soup. If the water separates, just give it a good shake after it thaws and before you use it :)

    Have you tried canning this? I don’t think my family would use it fast enough – I would love to make my own – but I would need to can in at least 1/2 pint small jars. Thanks.

    I bought a huge can of tomato paste in hopes to make ketchup, soup, sauce, etc… how would I adjust the recipe from tomatoes to paste? TIA!

    Hi there. I tried this and it turned out really watery. I ended up adding some tomato paste to get it to thicken, but it took away from some of the flavor & spice. Do you have any tips to avoid that in the future? I did use a regular blender because I don’t have an immersion blender…do you think I could have blended it too hard?
