Reduced Sugar Tomato Ketchup

A lot of children like ketchup but shop-bought varieties are high in sugar. My recipe is so easy to make and it contains just 0.9g sugar per tablespoon compared to standard ketchup which contains around 4g sugar per tablespoon.

This ketchup will keep in the fridge in a sealed container for 2 weeks, or store in the freezer in ice cube trays indefinitely!
