1tspallspiceI use my home made blend of equal parts nutmeg, cinnamon, cloves and a bit of ginger
1/2cupof wheyplus another 3-4 tbsp set aside
Mix paste, vinegar, honey, maple syrup and the 1/2 cup of whey, add in seasonings and mix until smooth. Thin out with a little bit of water until it's at your desired consistency. I prefer thicker (think of the old heinz glass bottle ketchup that poured so slowly) so I don't add any water.
*4 will give you a very acidic tasting ketchup so as a first timer go with 3 and alter on the next batch if you want it more vinegary. If you are anything like me then sometimes your kombucha goes a little too long and ends up as vinegar for your dressings or in your ketchup.
