Do-It-Yourself Tomato Ketchup / Catsup

Why make your own ketchup, when you can buy it everywhere?

Because this recipe is sugar free!

Now, don’t go thinking that it loses any flavour because of that. This sugar-free ketchup is just as delicious as the regular sugar-full versions that we buy in the shops. But you can eat this safe in the knowledge that your not taking on board too much sugar.

I have to admit, I’m not a great ketchup fan! But, I do love mixing up different sauces; which ketchup is very useful to use as a base to add other ingredients to.Ketchup Recipe sm

Flavour Full Stop

For Christmas this year Caroline and I bought each other experiences and edibles.

One of the gifts I got Caroline was a three-month subscription to an artisan food box, from a website called Flavour Full Stop.

Each month they send out a selection of six artisan food products sourced in the UK and roughly built around a theme.

We both like artisan products and I thought it would be a fun way to try some new and different products from those we can pick up at our local farm shops and delicatessens.

Our first package arrived yesterday and, as Caroline predicted, it was based around detoxing after New Years celebrations.
