I made the ketchup once and it was delicious!

I've just made up my first batch of Ketchup (Using the Nourishing Traditons recipe with whey and fish sauce)

Has anyone else ever made it, and if so, how did it turn out?

I've also just put my nasturtion seeds into a brine for two days before pickling them like capers...

I've used whey in the garden, the plants seem to like it :) you can also use it to make protein shakes

HI again, I get an email newsletter thingy about kefir, and someone mentioned using whey, kombucha and such in the garden, being acid it is apparently good for some plants, wondering if anyone else uses it in the garden in any way?

I have made an apricot jam using whey and also some pickles. The jam was a different texture but tasted good. I used and modified a recipe from Nourishing Traditions :)

Its a more traditional way like in the Nourishing traditions book for preserving food. Have never tried it myself and have not spoken to anyone that has done it, would love to hear from those who have done it this way.

Hi Tara, thanks for info. Will give it a go, but not sure about the process to make it Low GI (does anyone if this is good for you).

Has anyone tried whey to make jam?
Comment by Tara McFarlane on October 28, 2010 at 9:36pm
As sugar is what preserves the jams, you may find that many low sugar jams won't set, and will go off quite quickly. I've tried using splenda, stevia and other sweeteners - I now use the low GI sugar that Chelsea has just recently put out - just as sweet, but not the extreme high and low after eating it.
As a diabetic, I am aware of how much sugar goes into jam, so you just need to limit the amount that you

I might try that with liver, half the family tolerate it as long as there is a good gravy with it, i will try soaking it to note the improvement. One son absolutely refuses to eat it as he says the liver is an organ which deals with toxins, waste products, any comment?
