4 roasted red peppers( I roasted and peel the skin, removed the seeds and chopped)
1/4 fresh onion(diced)
1/4-1/2 peach diced and rehydrated if you used dehydrated(dehydrated,fresh, or fresh frozen)-Pear would sub fine.
1/3 cup braggs apple cider vinegar
1/4(or less) cup sweet potato(next time I will skip this, I don't think it did anything to help the ketchup besides bulk)
1/2 cup cane syrup or granulated sugar(Domino's)
1/2 garlic powder
salt(used pink himalayan, and be prepared it takes lots of salt)
1-2 teaspoons of black strap molasses(MUST be blackstrap)

In sauce pan combine the roasted red peppers,onion, peach(or pear), sweet potato, garlic powder and about half the sugar, half the Braggs and about 1/2 teaspoon salt. Cover and allow to simmer low and slow until everything is tender.

Once cooled puree in blender. Now start tasting. I needed a lot more vinegar and salt to balance mine out. I added a bit more cane syrup at one point, it came down to tasting and tasting and adding until I thought we were close. It was still missing something so we added about 1 teaspoon of blackstrap(1/2 teaspoon at a time-powerful flavor)and that made it perfect! So guilty of not measuring in my haste to conquer tomato free ketchup for Abby.

The peach/onion buried a lot of the red pepper flavor but the red pepper is still strong. I wish she could have white vinegar- the Braggs was a bit shy on "tang" but, overall we were very pleased. As long as you like roasted red peppers this is going to be a tasty alternative to tomato based ketchup.

NOTE: The fries in the pic are a mixture of yuca and potato fries. I made the yuca exactly as I do potato in the oven. They are a bit starchy and the ones that baked in more of the oil on the cookie sheet turned out more tender. So yuca fries may be better fried then baked. Still, tasty for us though!
