Condiments: The best down home ketchup yer ever gawna taste!

July 27, 2011

Ketchup is surely one of life’s greatest pleasures. But, you’ve never tasted ketchup ’til you’ve tried this one. It’s honest to god the bees knees. Make it and you’ll never douse your hot chips with Heinz ever again. This is another Mark Sisson recipe that I’ve adapted slightly, using less apple cider vinegar than the original recipe calls for. It does still need that vinegar though, to give it a real bite.

Condiments are well worth time investing in, because they help jazz up lots of different meals even when you’ve got no motivation to make anything special.  Depending on the ingredients, they can also last quite a while in the fridge – the apple cider vinegar in this ketchup means it will keep for weeks.

Ingredients

280g of tomato paste (usually 1 can or 2 small tubs)
1/3 cup apple cider vinegar
1/3 cup water
3 tbsp raw honey or maple syrup
3 tbsp white onion, minced
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tsp sea salt
1/8 tsp ground allspice
1/8 tsp ground cloves
1/8 tsp black pepper
