2 - 6-ounce cans tomato paste
1-1/3 cup cider vinegar
2/3 cup water
2/3 cup Splenda
4 tablespoons minced onion
4 cloves garlic
2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/2 teaspoon guar or xanthan*
 
Just throw everything in your blender and run, scraping down the sides from time to time, until the onion and garlic disappear. Store in a snap-top container in the fridge, and use just like any ketchup.

* this item is not essential but makes your ketchup a little thicker and helps keep the water from separating out if don’t use it quickly. I was able to find packets of xanthan by Hodgson Mills at my local Wal-Mart store.
