Easy fermented ketchup
This is what I did when my husband bought about 8 bottles of ketchup at the store because it said "no corn syrup!" Well, I guess that's better than what you normally get, I thought. But what to do with all of this ketchup with sugar that I still didn't want anyone eating...
I made a batch of mineral-rich fish broth a while back and froze it into small amounts (little jars or ice cube trays work). So, what I did was empty the ketchup into quart jars and add a small amount of fish broth and some whey. I let this set out to ferment the sugar out. The taste is really good with the broth, though it sounds pretty weird. It's really good!
Whenever we get a new bottle of ketchup, I just take a little frozen amt. of fish broth out of the freezer, plop it into the jar with the ketchup and whey, and viola....fermented ketchup in a day or so! Great to get those probiotics with our meals.
That's my cheating way of making easy, fermented ketchup!
P.S. I've made it totally from scratch before from the Nourishing Traditions Cookbook (with fresh tomatoes, too). That's a LOT of work for not much output. You could start with organic tomato paste or puree, if you cared to, to save some time.
