Let’s be honest – what house doesn’t have ketchup in it? Not the healthiest condiment, but for most indispensable. So here we are going to give you a probiotic, preservative free version!
This recipe is for plain, basic ketchup, without additional herbs or spices, but if you want to add in something you like such as garlic, cayenne, herbs etc, go ahead.
1 fermentation vessel with lid/seal
Combine all of the ingredients except any starter liquid that you might have, and blend or whisk together. At this point you can taste a little bit to see if you want to add more sugar/honey. Also check the consistency. If it is too thick for your liking add in the filtered water until the consistency is the way you want it.
