    3 cup tomato sauce (could also use some of this as tomato paste for thicker ketchup)
    6 tbsp cup raw honey, maple syrup or whole unrefined cane sugar (see sources)
    1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons fresh whey*, divided
    3 tablespoons raw apple cider vinegar, plus extra for thinning the ketchup, if desired
    1 teaspoon unrefined sea salt
    1 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
    1 teaspoon ground cloves


Homemade Ketchup: Method

Spoon tomato sauce into a large mixing bowl and fold in raw honey or other natural sweetener of choice.
Whisk in one-quarter cup fresh whey or vegetable starter culture into the sweetened tomato paste along with apple cider vinegar, sea salt, spices and cloves. Continue whisking these ingredients together until the paste is smooth and uniform.
Spoon the homemade ketchup into a mason jar, top with remaining two tablespoons fresh whey or vegetable starter culture, cover loosely with a cloth or lid and allow the ketchup to sit at room temperature, undisturbed, for three to five days.
After three to five days, uncover the homemade ketchup and give it a thorough stir before transferring to the refrigerator. Naturally fermented homemade ketchup will keep for several months in the refrigerator.

TIME: 5 minutes (active), 3 to 5 days (fermentation)
YIELD: about 1 pint.
DAIRY-FREE? Omit fresh whey and substitute one packet vegetable starter culture (see sources) dissolved in one-quarter cup plus two tablespoons filtered water.
