    Hiya Guys

    Basically my downfall is not chocolate, but tomato ketchup.

    Honestly, can't eat a meal without the stuff! And that really takes up precious syns I do have.

    I was hoping somebody could suggest some syn free condiments I could try instead of tomato ketchup. Or a syn free ketchup would be amazing! But is there such a thing?

    Hope you can help me out :)

    xoxo

    if you search the recipie bit there are recipies for a syn free tomato sauce and a syn free barbeque sauce.
    both are gorgeous and i depended on them throughout my journey although now im at target i dont bother i just use normal.

    a fellow ketchup lover myself i was eager to make a syn free ketchup in one of the slimming world magazines a month or two back, however i was very diapointed, i followed the measurements and ingredients exactly only to find a disgusting spicy vinagar tasting sauce, not very helpful for what you wer asking i know but just thought id share my ketchup disappointment :(

    I made the syn free BBQ sauce and although, yes it tasted nice, it wasn't quite BBQ sauce and had a backing taste of sweetener/artificial taste. My OH loved it and said I could bottle the stuff haha, so maybe it is because you know what's in it?? Some sort of voodoo psychological thing at work :D

    As for tomato sauce...I don't ever want to replicate the yumminess of organic heinz!! :)

    Ketchup is my weakness too. I get the reduced salt and sugar stuff so I feel at least a bit virtuous, even though syns are the same.

    If you're a gravy fan, there's a nice recipe somebody linked to on their blog for a syn-free onion gravy. It was a tasty alternative to my usual Bisto Best Roast Onion and good for saving syns.

    I've seen a few recipes, but not tried any as they look very faffy.

    Personally I use pasatta, and add balsamic, sweetner, a teensy bit garlic powder, soy and woucestershire sauce, tweaking the amounts until it tastes right. Give it a good shake and keep in the fridge. I used this for a couple of years, until Branston took out their ketchup, and I find that one VERY difficult to resist lol

    I make the syn free BBQ sauce & find its good. Only thing I don't like is the chopped onions in it so I use some onion granuals instead :D

    I used to make a nice Chinese BBQ sauce which was soy sauce, tomato puree, garlic, ginger, pinch of Chinese five spice and some sweetener. It made a really nice glaze or marinade and was ok for dipping too. I guess the tomato puree would need to be synned though, unless passata is substituted but the tomato puree does thicken it up a bit.

    I like red onion chutney.

    Frylite red onion and garlic. Add balsamic vinegare and water and Splenda - simmer for ages. The Splenda takes the vinegary taste away - as does the chilis I add some times. I've also added apple and made a similar one with mango. Try it with a baked pot and cheese or on a quorn burger. My next batch will be used to make a goats cheese and red onion tart using a Smash base like the SW pizza.
