A healthy, slightly sweet and tangy homemade Apple Ketchup that is sugar free, very flavorful and can be used in and on so many dishes. Everyone’s favorite condiment just got a flavor boost that is a little different.
We all can agree, ketchup is good for just about anything and it probably is the worlds most popular condiment (hello French fries) but did you know there are flavored ketchups out there?
Probably the 2nd most popular to regular ketchup (or tomato sauce as we like to call it in England) is curry ketchup.
Speaking of curry ketchup, I do have a recipe that I serve with my Mini Pork Apple & Sage Sausage Rolls. That I really think you need to check out also.
I made this apple ketchup as a topping and a side to Pork, Apple and Sage Meatloaf (see below). When I decided I wanted a tomato sauce to complement the ingredients in the meatloaf, I gave this apple ketchup a try, and liked it.
So easy to make, this homemade ketchup is so versatile, you can use it in and on burgers, grilled chicken, really anywhere you would use regular ketchup.
Here’s the step-by-step: The recipe starts with softening onions. Grated apples (and their juices) are what gives this ketchup natural sweetness. I used honey crisp because they’re in season and the sweetest right now, but you can use what’s available to you.
The grated apple is cooked with the onions, tomato paste, vinegar and tomato sauce is added, cooked for 15 minutes, blend and you have a delicious ketchup.
I would say there are probably countless ketchup variation you can make, so, watch this channel. I may surprise you with more.

This sounds so delicious. I can’t believe it’s so easy to make this Apple Ketchup. I would love it.
This apple ketchup sounds amazing! I love making preserves and sauces/condiments! This is wonderfully fall too!
This is so good! I love making my own ketchup. I have used red pepper in the past, but, never apples. This will be so much fun to make
How wonderful to make your own ketchup! And especially this ‘posh’ version with apple in it as well. I wonder if there is a way of bottling this up in sterilised jars so that you can keep it for longer?
I love homemade condiments! And since your meatloaf has apple in it, an apple ketchup sounds just perfect. 🙂
I’ve never tried apple ketchup, but now I’m excited about it! I’m sure I’ll like it! Honey crisp are my favorite sweet apples, too!
This was an experiment with a good ending, I was very happy the way it turned out. Thank you Mira.
This sounds so yummy. I love apple butter and I always enjoy pairing fruit butters and jams with savory dishes! yum!
Thank you Luci, it’s a good recipe and it’s not too sweet.
