Recipe by MarthaGee
Lacto-fermented ketchup made with honey and fresh whey. Dark honey and spices give it a complex flavor profile. Cooking time is fermenting time. You may omit the whey and use the ketchup right away without fermenting but it will only keep for a few days in the refrigerator. The preservative qualities of fermenting will take 3-5 days to develop. Flavor profile will also deepen.
- 7 ounces tomato paste
- 2 tablespoons dark raw honey
- 3 tablespoons fresh whey
- 1 tablespoon raw apple cider vinegar
- 1 teaspoon powdered beet juice (optional)
- 1⁄2 teaspoon sea salt
- 1⁄2 teaspoon onion powder
- 1⁄2 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1⁄4 teaspoon allspice
- 1⁄4 teaspoon ground cloves
- 1⁄4 teaspoon coriander

- Cover tightly and refrigerate. Will keep for several months.
