Homemade Organic Almost Heinz 57 Sauce

Wow, I am so glad that I was able to make this sauce.  The recipe that I adapted can be found here.  I added more turmeric to the recipe to get the traditional color.  Otherwise it would look much more like ketchup mixed with raisin puree.  I think it turned out pretty well.  The taste matures in the refrigerator, so allow it to marinate overnight.

Here’s What You’ll Need:

  • 1/3 cup organic raisin puree
  • 1 cup organic distilled white vinegar
  • 1 cup organic raw apple cider vinegar
  • 1 cup organic cane sugar
  • 1 cup [8 ounces/ 7 ounces plus 2 Tbsp.] organic tomato paste

  • 2 Tbsp. homemade organic applesauce
  • 1 1/2 tsp. Real Salt
  • 2 Tbsp. organic lime juice
  • 1/2 tsp. pureed organic onion
  • 1 organic clove garlic, pureed
  • 4 tsp. organic turmeric
  • 1/8 tsp. Homemade Chili Powder
  • 1 pinch organic cayenne pepper
  • 1 pinch organic celery seed

Here’s How I do it:

  1. Pour the 1/3 cup of raisins into a pint-and-a-half jar with 1/3 cup of water.
  2. Allow to sit for 30 minutes.
  3. Add the garlic and onion to the raisins, and puree for a minute on low with an immersion blender.
  4. Put the puree and the remaining ingredients into a 2 quart chef’s saucepan.
  5. Bring the mixture to a boil.
