Homemade Fresh Tomato Ketchup Recipe Using Your own Tomatoes!

by Sarah Shilhavy

  • 3 tablespoons coconut oil, or as needed
  • 1/2 -1 white or yellow onion, roughly chopped
  • 2-4 cloves garlic, peeled
  • 1/4 teaspoon celery seed
  • 1/2 teaspoon allspice
  • 1/2 teaspoon fennel seeds
  • 3 whole cloves
  • salt, to taste
  • 2 lb tomatoes, quartered
  • 3/4 cup coconut water vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons honey

Melt coconut oil in a large saucepan and add onion and garlic. Sauté lightly for about 20 seconds. Turn heat off and stir in remaining ingredients.

Simmer over medium low to low heat until ketchup becomes thick and reduces by half, approximately 2-4 hours. Stir every once in awhile as needed.

Purée ketchup in a blender, and then strain through a mesh strainer. If you wish, adjust seasoning to taste and if the ketchup isn’t at the thickness you want, return to the saucepan and simmer until it’s just the way you want it.

Cool, and then store in the refrigerator.

Don’t let the long ingredient list fool you. This recipe is actually very easy to make. I just got a little carried away with the spices.

But really? Allspice? Cloves? Are we making pumpkin pie? No, we’re not. Trust me, they all work together. It doesn’t taste like ketchup made with pumpkin pie spice mix. It’s really, really yummy.

You can give and take on the spices, if you want. But if you have all the ingredients on hand, make it just as is first and see if you like it. There isn’t much of each spice, so they all work together to create that ketchup flavor. If you think you can make it better to suit your taste buds, go right ahead! Then let me know what spices you did or didn’t use, and how you liked it.

The aroma of the sauce as it simmered on the stove was amazing, I kept coming back to taste it…and add salt. I’m not sure how much salt I ended up using (I kept adding a little more at a time) but just go by taste.

Since this uses all fresh tomatoes, it’s a great way to use up your summer crop if you’re growing a garden this year. And like I said, it’s easy. Really. For real. It’s one of those recipes that pretty much does it’s own thing and fills your house with nice smells in the process.

Oh, and another cool thing about this recipe? It uses honey as the sweetener (I used raw honey). I kid you not, my jaw literally dropped to the floor when I saw how much sugar some of these homemade ketchup recipes use. It really doesn’t need that much. Just a small amount of honey gave it a nice, sweet (but not too sweet!) flavor. Yum.

And for all you visual (and non visual) learners, we have a video for you today that will take you through the recipe step by step.

Happy ketchup making!

Boston Nurses Speak Out Against Mandatory Flu Shots

Boston Nurses Speak Out Against Mandatory Flu Shots

Pin It

Last month (September 2014) the Massachusetts Nurses Association sued Brigham and Women’s Hospital over a new policy that required nurses to receive the annual flu vaccine as a condition for employment.

The nurses were, of course, criticized by the medical establishment. They were accused of putting their own interests above the needs of patients. Lynn Nicholas, president of the Massachusetts Hospital Association, stated that the nurses were: “putting a pet peeve of theirs above the safety and well-being of the patients they serve, their families, visitors to the hospital, and their colleagues.”

Pet peeve? Really?

When nurses all across the United States and Canada are willing to sacrifice their jobs and careers to avoid the annual flu shot, it is time to sit up and take notice. This is obviously something much more than a “pet peeve.”

Trish Powers, representing Brigham nurses in Boston fired back a comment that The Boston Globe published. It is titled “Brigham nurses know flu vaccine can do harm.”

Will There Be An Ebola Outbreak in America?

Will There Be An Ebola Outbreak in America?

So here is what inquiring minds want to know:

Why did U.S. health officials in Atlanta and on the ground in Africa ignore the exploding Ebola epidemic last spring?

Why did U.S. government officials fly American aid workers infected with Ebola to the U.S. rather than treating them with experimental drugs at hospitals in Africa?

Why did the U.S. government press the United Nations to adopt a resolution calling for no restrictions on international travel from Liberia and other Ebola-stricken countries?

Why did the Centers for Disease Control, supposedly the world’s leading infection control agency, fail to immediately assist Texas health officials when the first case of Ebola was diagnosed on US soil to guarantee that, at a minimum, the kind of infection control measures used in most nursing homes in America would be carried out?

Why has the Director of the CDC repeatedly stated that the only way a person can transmit Ebola is if they have a fever and said that people cannot get Ebola unless they have direct contact with the body fluids of an infected person – but that under no circumstances is Ebola airborne – when he knows, or should know, those statements could be false?

And why are experimental Ebola vaccines being fast tracked into human trials and promoted as the final solution rather than ramping up testing and production of the experimental ZMapp drug that has already saved the lives of several Ebola infected Americans?

A logical conclusion is that some people in industry, government and the World Health Organization did not want the Ebola outbreak to be confined to several nations in Africa because that would fail to create a lucrative global market for mandated use of fast tracked Ebola vaccines by every one of the seven billion human beings living on this planet.

Michigan Only State with Pharmaceutical “Immunity Law” Determined to Prosecute Mother for Refusing to Drug Daughter

Michigan Only State with Pharmaceutical “Immunity Law” Determined to Prosecute Mother for Refusing to Drug Daughter

Michigan, the only U.S. state that has a pharmaceutical “immunity law” seems determined to prosecute Maryanne Godboldo for refusing to administer a dangerous antipsychotic drug to her daughter.

When will the deliberate persecution of Detroit mother, Maryanne Godboldo, come to an end? Despite four court rulings exonerating Godboldo of any wrongdoing, the state prosecutor is, inexplicably, committed to what can only be described as a relentless attack. The Citizens Commission on Human Rights (CCHR), the nation’s leading mental health watchdog, has launched an in-depth investigation into Michigan’s mental health policies to get to the bottom of the state’s seemingly endless prosecution of Godboldo.

Doctors Expose Cancer Drugs Scandal

Doctors Expose Cancer Drugs Scandal

The CBS News program 60 Minutes aired an investigative report this week on the scandalous practice of pharmaceutical companies’ actions with cancer drugs.

The report featured Dr. Leonard Saltz, chief of gastrointestinal oncology at Memorial Sloan Kettering, one of the nation’s premier cancer centers. Dr. Saltz is a leading expert on colon cancer. Also appearing in the report was Dr. Peter Bach, also from Memorial Sloan Kettering.

Is this a clear case of doctors in the cancer industry developing a conscious and blowing the whistle on the system they earn their living from, and the powerful pharmaceutical industry?

The real question is can the current cancer industry really be fixed? While this interview does expose some of the fraud and corruption in the cancer industry, it is still not dealing with the basic issues of how the industry needs sick cancer patients to survive, not cures.

As a result, any treatments for cancer outside of this lucrative pharmaceutical market is aggressively pursued by the FDA and squashed.

Dr. Suzanne Humphries on Vaccine Safety: “They Don’t Want You to Hear the Other Side”

Dr. Suzanne Humphries on Vaccine Safety: “They Don’t Want You to Hear the Other Side”

Dr. Suzanne Humphries is a medical doctor with specialties in internal medicine and nephrology. She has years of experience in seeing and treating illness resulting from vaccine damage, particularly kidney failure. It is highly unlikely you will ever hear her interviewed in the mainstream media, because the mainstream media only presents one side of vaccine safety.

Dr. Humphries was recently interviewed while traveling in Sweden last month. The information she shares in this 22 minute video is information every person in America should have access to, particularly doctors and those administering vaccines. We summarize and review the video here.

I have been covering the vaccine issues for many years now, and I must say that what Dr. Humphries covers in this 22 minute video is by far the best presentation on vaccine safety I have ever watched. People, watch this video!! If you have doctors who are open-minded and want to learn about the inherent dangers of vaccines, show them this video! Churches and other places of worship need to get together and show this video.

Let’s educate people on the entire truth of the issue of vaccines, because the government and medical system does not want you to know this, and the mainstream media in general is not doing their job in covering this issue. Learn why this doctor who used to administer vaccines now says: “I don’t believe in vaccines. I don’t even believe a little bit in vaccines. I believe they can do more harm to me than I may ever be able to make up for.”
