homemade ketchup recipe


2 Tbs olive oil
1 medium onion, chopped
1 clove garlic, chopped
1 28-oz can tomato puree
1/2 cup honey
1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
1 Tbs tomato paste
2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp ground mustard
1/8 tsp ground cloves
1/4 tsp allspice
2 tsp red pepper flakes
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
1. Saute onion in olive oil over medium heat until translucent [about 6-8 minutes]. Add in rest of ingredients and stir to combine. Increase heat to high and bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low and simmer for 45-60 minutes, stirring occasionally until it gets thick like ketchup.
2. Use an immersion blender, food processor, or blender to puree the mixture until smooth.
3. Pour into container(s) and refrigerate for up to one month.
**for a more “normal” ketchup taste you’ll want to use less cloves and allspice, or none at all. also, if you don’t like things spicy then don’t add the red pepper flakes or cayenne pepper. taste as you go along to get the right kind of flavor that you like   recipe saource

Remove Puke from Carpet

With all the talk going on about viruses and the flu I thought I would step back and offer a common sense step. To many of us PUKE is repulsive and at all cost should be avoided. So what happens when do have to clean it up and worst of all it is in carpet?? So if you find yourself in this predicament here is a detailed plan for you to follow (be careful it is graphic)

  • 2-3 old towels
  • A plastic garbage bag
  • Baking soda
  • Carpet cleaner (Resolve) and cleaning cloths (only if the carpet gets stained)
  • Vacuum cleaner
1. Scoop up the solid bits with a big, absorbent towel. 
I use a beach towel. BIG and ABSORBENT are key because you can wrap everything up in the towel and throw it straight in the washer. If there are a lot of solids, dump what you can in the toilet — but usually the washer will take care of the worst of it. Throw towel #1 in the plastic bag.
2. With a second towel, blot the big, wet spots.
The more pressure, the more the towel will suck up moisture. Throw towel #2 in the plastic bag.
3. Only if the vomit leaves a stain, saturate the stain with carpet cleaner, and clean as directed.
It’s rare that we need to do this, but when we do we use Resolve. Throw the cleaning cloths into the plastic bag.
4. Sprinkle the wet spot with baking soda.
Use more than you think you need to, and press it into the carpet with the corner of a towel. This will neutralize any smell. 
5. Throw all the dirty laundry in the washer.
You’ll be so glad you did this right away. If you don’t have a washer, you’ve got everything sealed up in a plastic bag, ready for the laundromat.
6. Let the spot dry, then vacuum.
I’ve left the baking soda overnight with no problems.
7. Polish your parenting medal.
You know, the one you were awarded the last time you did this?

Key Lime Coconut Parfait

2 cups of water
1 cup sugar
½ cup cornstarch
5 egg yolks
¾ cup key lime juice
1 Tbsp coconut extract
5 or so drops of green food coloring
1½ cups whipping cream
3 heaping Tbsp powdered sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 sleeve graham crackers, coarsely crushed (that is 9 full graham cracker) sheets

Place water in a sauce pan and bring to a boil over medium heat. Once boiling, remove from heat and let sit for 5 minutes. While the water sits, place the egg yolks in a bowl and whisk together. Set aside. Place the sugar and cornstarch in a bowl and whisk together. Add the sugar/cornstarch mixture to the water. Whisk until well blended. Pace over medium heat and whisk constantly until thick like pudding. Remove from the heat and add a couple spoonfuls of the mixture to the egg yolks that are set aside and whisk together. Add a couple more spoonfuls to the eggs and whisk again. This will temper the eggs so you don’t end up with scrambled eggs. Add the egg mixture to the remaining pudding mixture and whisk together. Then whisk in the lime juice, coconut extract, and food coloring. Add enough for coloring to get a nice shade of green. Set aside. Whip the whipping cream until soft peaks form. Add the powdered sugar and vanilla to the whipping cream and mix until well blended. Give the lime pudding a whisk again before layering in the dishes. In 5 mini trifle dishes or other similar dishes, layer graham crackers, cream, and lime pudding. Repeat layers leaving some whipping cream to top the parfaits and a little graham cracker to sprinkle on top also. Pipe or spoon whipping cream on top and sprinkle with a little graham cracker. Refrigerate for 2 hours and serve.
