    I'm not really sure, but once, I mixed some salt in some tomato paste and dipped my french fries in it. It was definitely no Heinz, but it worked when I didn't have ketchup.
    I was thinking about trying that... it might do (although I'm not sure how long it'll keep).

          If you want it sweeter than the recipe posted, why not just more honey/syrup?

            Please do not use palm sugar. Read below:

              I used to use coconut palm sugar to make my papaya salad years ago, instead of the disappointing white sugar most Thai restaurants in the USA really use(saves them $). In time, I decided I didn't need/want any extra added outside sweetener in my food. For the papaya salad, I simply used less lime juice & less fish sauce & no added sweetener & quite quickly, I got used to no sweetener in it. After reading the article posted by Tee, on the possible threat of Philipine coco sugar against the future stability of their entire coco oil & flake/flour industry, I'll pass on the info to my koo-koo-for-coco sugar lovin' friends. Whoda' thunk it?

                Here is a link to a traditional lacto fermented tomato ketchup, which will keep well for several months. (Hovere, if you don't like ketchup enough to finish this quantity in far less time than that - why bother making it at all??!!)

                  This looks great, and I agree about the time frame! Just cooked a hunk of roast beef that is screaming for some sauce for the leftovers

                      Sugar is a huge part of ketsup, even "healthy organic" ones. I just made my own, took a couple of hours to boil down the 'maters but zero sugar (touch of stevia) & now I'm lightly fermenting it, woo hoo

                        TBH I've just started using crushed tomato in its place. Works just fine for me. Tomato has enough sugar in it on its own to be sweet IMO.

                          So true. The ripe beefsteak 'maters my cousin gifted me, were SO sweet, naturally, or maybe hybridized to be sweet... Regardless, tomatoes are fruits & tonight's 'maters tasted as sweet as any other fruit I've eaten this past week. A pinch of stevia is all I added to my ketsup, as some of the natural sugars in it will be consumed in the fermentation process...

                            Stevia is not splenda. Of all the natural sweetners, only stevia had health benefits: good for your pancreas, no dental or gum decay. Splenda, um, no thanks. Splenda Side Effects | A New Look At The Dangers Of Splenda | Is ...www.peertrainer.com/.../complete-guide-to-sweeteners.aspx
                            I used coconut palm sugar for many years, as I've cooked certain dishes as true to the traditional Thai recipes as possible. But palm sugar, though it has a better nutritional profile than other sugars, still is, in the end, sugar. If I want to sweeten something, I tend to use a mashed up banana or a pinch of pure stevia. Chaco recommended Stevita brand, as the cleanest, & as I'm almost out of my bottle(after 2 years of use, 1 small bottle!), I'm ordering Stevita off Amazon soon...

                              A friend of mine has made that lacto-fermented ketchup from the Nourished Kitchen and I can attest to its awesomeness. I have plans to make my own fermented ketchup and some preserved lemons.

                                This looks easy and yum...particularly if it does last that long.

                                Thanks for the link
