Ketchup Time!

  • 6 ounces tomato paste
  • 2/3 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 2 tbsp of your preferred sugar substitute (optional)
  • 2 tbsp onions
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/8 tsp ground allspice
  • 1/8 tsp ground cloves
  • 1/8 tsp pepper

Combine ingredients into food processor or Magic Bullet.  Continue blending until onion disappears.  Serve and/or store in airtight container in the refrigerator.

Barbecue Sauciness

  • 2 strips of thick bacon, chopped fine or 1 teaspoon of smoked paprika, or chipotle powder to taste
  • (this gives the sauce its smoky flavor, so using either the bacon or the spices is fine!)
  • 1 small onion (minced)
  • 1 clove garlic (minced)
  • 1 6oz can tomato paste
  • 1 tsp liquid smoke
  • 1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/4 cup ketchup (again, use your homemade version!)
  • 3 tbsp mustard
  • 1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 pinch ground cloves1 pinch cinnamon
  • Hot sauce to taste (any variety is fine!)

Fry bacon in a smaller pan using no oil.  Continue until cooked through.  Add onion and cook the combination until onion begins to brown (about 3-5 minutes.)  Add garlic, then after a minute mix in other ingredients and allow to simmer for about 30 minutes.  Test the mixture.  Add spices, vinegar, and hot sauce to taste.  To store, scoop into a large plastic container and keep refrigerated.
