Sun Dried Tomato Ketchup

I’ve been working on my little blog for almost a year.  It’s really unbelievable how fast time flies.  I have enjoyed every post and all of the feedback I’ve received.  Among the various forms of feedback received, I managed to wrangle a free sample of Traina’s California Sun Dried Tomato Ketchup.  I love free.  I really, really do.

But, with free comes great responsibility.  I will not tell you, dear readers, that I like something when I don’t.  I’ll do a fair review of the item and let you know what I think of the product.

This is a thick, rich and savory ketchup made by the folks at Traina using sun dried tomatoes.  For the kids, the ketchup was a disappointment because they were looking for the very sweet Heinz ketchup.   For the adults, it was just a world of possibilities.  My husband can’t wait to use this in his barbeque sauce.  I believe it will be an amazing addition to this recipe for barbeque sauce, just use it in place of the regular ketchup.   But for this post, I wanted to do something different.

This is a rich and savory ketchup and I immediately wanted to use it in a thick, tomato based sauce.  My husband was working late, and I had the kids by myself, so I took some meatballs out of the freezer, made a quick sauce using the ketchup as a base, and had meatball sandwiches.  Very easy weeknight meal!

Making a sauce out of the sun dried tomato ketchup was a breeze.  Added a touch of water until about 2 cups of sauce was a bit loose and more of a sauce than a ketchup.  Added a bit of salt, pepper, and oregano to taste.  Super, duper easy!!!

Overall,  this is adult ketchup that is incredibly thick and savory.  A great take on a classic American condiment!
