Making your own Convenience Foods: Ketchup

One condiment that we use... A LOT, around here is ketchup. We are big fans and use it frequently, with fried potatoes, or as a part of making some thousand island dressing or as a little thickener in some vegetable soup. 
There are a lot of homemade ketchup recipes out there as well! 
This is the Nourishing Traditions style of ketchup. It isn't exactly like your store-bought, and would take a little getting used to... but if you want to make it a very healthful way, this would be your go-to. 

Here is the recipe:
3 cups Canned tomato paste, preferably organic
1/4 cup whey
1 tablespoon sea salt
1/2 cup maple syrup
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
3 cloves garlic, peeled and mashed
1/2 cup homemade fish sauce or commercial fish sauce.
Mix all ingredients until well blended.  Will yield 1 quart, ketchup should be at least 1 inch below top of jar.  Leave at room temp. for 2 days before transferring to cold storage.
