This is a recipe I started making after I decided to stop buying products with refined sugar. This recipe is from Sally Fallon’s Nourishing Traditions. (A Must Have Book)
Take these ingredients and mix together in a blender. Then put them into a quart jar with lid.
- 3 C. canned tomato paste
- 1/4 C. whey (I make this from Raw Milk)
- 1 T. sea salt
- 1/2 C. maple syrup
- 1/4 t. cayenne pepper (If you like spicy food… increase this.)
- 3 cloves garlic, peeled and mashed
- 1/2 C. homemade or commercial fish sauce (Fish sauce can be found in Asian food stores or in the Asian Section of your favorite grocery store.)
Let sit at room temperature for a couple days to ferment and then place in the refrigerator. Use on and in your favorite dishes that call for ketchup. Grady loves it on potatoes as well as meatloaf. We warn guests who want to try it that it doesn’t taste like store bought ketchup. Try thinking about the flavor of tomato paste instead.
Have you ever tried a recipe from Nourishing Traditions, what did you think?
