I like to grow bacteria.

It’s a strange habit.

And a healthy habit.

It started about 6 years ago.  and the much more bacteria that I grow, the much more I want to grow. 


For starters, it is an addicting habit. I can be creative. Farverig. even flavorful with this habit. It is a challenge to find just the best bacteria that my family will dive into. begin requesting. Craving.

The much more bacteria you have, the much more you want it.

What am I really talking about?


When my husband and I dived into the organic, whole foods rabbit hole six years ago, I had no idea that at any given time in the future, there would be numerous Mason jars sitting on our counter top colonizing bacteria. 

During my quest for improved health and a desperate attempt to avoid using medication, due to acquiring Hashimoto’s disease and PCOS (polycystic ovarian syndrome), I came across a incredible book titled, The Maker’s Diet, by Jordan Rubin. It changed my life . . . I expect you could say.

That book then led me to Sally Fallon’s cookbook, Nourishing Traditions (which I am giving away on my website).

It was in these now well worn pages, that I discovered a whole new world of cooking, of baking, of nourishing my family.  I would never go back to our old diet, our sad diet (Standard American Diet).

Nourishing food is too much fun.  and our health has considerably improved.

I can let my 3-year old eat spoonfuls of ketchup at a time. Jep. He’s eating bacteria! and I understand the ingredients. Lad mig vise dig.

Homemade Ketchup


3 cups canned organic tomato paste (this translates to four 6 oz cans)

1/4 cup whey (the yellowish liquid on top of yogurt)

1 tablespoon sea salt

1/2 cup maple syrup (the real stuff from the tree)

1/4 tsp cayenne pepper

3 cloves garlic, peeled and mashed

(optional) 1/2 cup fish sauce (can be found in the Asian section of your grocery store)


Mix all of the above ingredients together until thoroughly blended.

Pour or plop mixture into a quart-sized mason jar. You will want to use a wide-mouth mason jar. There ought to be at least 1 inch of room from the ketchup to the top of the jar lid. I would recommend using the conventional metal lid versus the new plastic one-piece lids.

Leave on your counter for two days before moving it to its cold home, your refrigerator.
