  • 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!

Boy Held by Chicago Hospital in Medical Kidnapping Case Returns Home

Boy Held by Chicago Hospital in Medical Kidnapping Case Returns Home

Local Fox News affiliate Fox4kc in Kansas City has reported that 17-year-old Isaiah Rider has returned home to Kansas City, even though the State of Illinois still retains his custody rights. Isaiah was released from Luries Children’s Hospital in Chicago where he was being held against his will, and the will of his family. He is reportedly staying with grandparents while his mother fights back against “medical abuse” charges for disagreeing with the hospital’s treatment and wanting to transfer him to a different hospital. Isaiah lost 5 months of his life to confinement in a hospital, and is now anxious to get back to school and resume his life.

Isaiah’s mother Michelle believes they held her son to conduct medical experimentation on his rare disease, Neurofibromatosis. Michelle will return to Chicago Friday to face trial. But in the meantime, at least Isaiah is back home in Kansas City, staying with his grandparents.

Baking Gluten Free Cookies with Coconut Flour

Baking Gluten Free Cookies with Coconut Flour

Coconut flour is one of the trickiest, if not the trickiest, most finicky, temperamental, fickle gluten free flour to work with. However, when you get it right, coconut flour baked goods will be some of the best you’ve ever had, gluten free or otherwise.

One of the hardest baked goods to transfer over to gluten free with coconut flour would be cookies. How do you do it? It’s either not the right texture, too crumbly, too dense, requires too many eggs or simply bakes up into sawdust.

Here are some proven tips to making successful coconut flour cookies based on three textures: crispy cookies, cakey cookies, chewy cookies. I include 10 kitchen-proven recipes to get you started.

CDC’s Purchase of $4 Billion of Vaccines a Conflict of Interest in Overseeing Vaccine Safety

CDC’s Purchase of $4 Billion of Vaccines a Conflict of Interest in Overseeing Vaccine Safety

Pin It

Do you trust the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC) to oversee vaccine safety, when they have an annual budget of over $4 billion to purchase vaccines from drug companies? In 2015, they want to increase that amount by another half a billion dollars.

Dr. Brian Hooker says the CDC should not be trusted to oversee vaccine safety, and after 10 years of fighting legal battles with the CDC via Freedom of Information requests to secure raw data on vaccine safety studies, he now has solid evidence to back up his claim of fraud within the CDC.

In a shocking news story that rocked the online world but was almost totally ignored by the mainstream media a couple of weeks ago, senior vaccine scientist Dr. William Thompson was revealed as a whistleblower within the CDC, admitting that the CDC had withheld information from a key study in 2004 that supposedly showed that the MMR childhood vaccine was safe.

The CDC was forced to issue a response, and Dr. Hooker has now shown that the CDC response is clearly trying to cover up ethical lapses and explain away key data that was omitted from their original study. This data which was hidden from the public for more than 10 years was not favorable towards their own bias and what they wanted the public to believe about vaccines and autism. Dr. Hooker has clearly shown that the CDC has a conflict of interest, and cannot be trusted with research on vaccine safety when it is spending more than $4 billion of taxpayer funds to purchase vaccines from drug manufacturers.

So what’s next? Will this fraud within the CDC be allowed to continue? There are reports that there are other whistleblowers within the CDC that would like to come forward, but are too fearful at this point. Dr. William Thompson is now represented by one of the top whistleblower attorneys in the nation, and has reportedly turned over more than 1000 documents to Congressman Bill Posey.

The pharmaceutical industry is the richest and most powerful political lobby in the world, however. Will there be enough members of Congress to come forward and oppose them? Does the American public even care enough about this issue to take action and threaten lawmakers who refuse to act and remove vaccine safety oversight from the CDC? Will they demand that taxpayer funds NOT be increased by over a half billion dollars next year to fund the purchase of more vaccines that are produced by pharmaceutical companies who are convicted criminals, and whose products have not been proven safe?

Alzheimer’s Disease is a modern plague on the seniors in our society. More evidence continues to be published that Alzheimer’s is primarily a prescription drug induced disease. Coconut oil is an alternative to toxic drugs that has shown tremendous results in helping or even reversing Alzheimer’s disease. But your doctor will not likely know about either the causes of Alzheimer’s disease, or how coconut oil can help. Here is what you need to know.

How the FDA Deceives You About Mercury Amalgams

How the FDA Deceives You About Mercury Amalgams

Pin It

57 Percent of Americans Do Not Know Amalgam Contains Mercury!

Why exactly is the FDA so opposed to informing the public about the true nature of amalgam? The answer is simple: because the agency has been penetrated through the revolving door that’s so common in other industries. Just like Monsanto has penetrated the federal government’s regulatory agencies, amalgam profit centers have penetrated and effectively lobbied the FDA to remain complacent on this issue.
