This will make a thick, dark colored, sweet and spicy ketchup which is not far in flavor from the commercial kind. This recipe only yielded about 4 generous Tablespoons, although it could be thickened instead of reducing for a larger quantity with a milder flavor. A and B secretors might try this using the No Tomato Tomato Sauce as the 'tomato' base, but I haven't explored this.

Best Used By Blood Types:
  • Type A Non Secretor (4 beneficials)
  • Type AB (3 beneficials)
  • Type AB Non Secretor (5 beneficials)
  • Type B Non Secretor (4 beneficials)
  • Type O (3 beneficials)
  • Type O Non Secretor (3 beneficials)

  • Other

  • 14 oz can of tomatoes
  • 1 medium red onion
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • juice from half a lemon
  • 1-2 Tablespoons molasses according to taste
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon allspice (or only a pinch of ground cloves)
  • a pinch or two of cayenne pepper (if not compliant, increase amount of ginger)

How to make it:
  1. Finely chop the onion.
  2. Mix all ingredients in a saucepan and bring to the boil.
  3. Simmer for 10 minutes to allow flavors to blend.
  4. Press the mixture through a sieve to extract as much liquid as possible.
  5. Keep the tomato and onion to flavor stews/soups.
  6. Reduce the resulting liquid on a medium to high heat until thickened to the desired consistency.
  7. Keep stirring to avoid burning as it will thicken quickly.
    Note:Fantastic with sweet potato fries or freshly baked soda bread!
