Rhubarb Ketchup

This ‘ketchup’ is tangy and sweet. It’s much better than ketchup and definitely retains rhubarb flavor. Great for steak sauce!

    I was excited to see this nightshade free ketcup, but i think i missed something. When I tried it, the vegies were pretty dry after 40 minutes in the oven. I added water, just to be able to puree. The end result tasted great, but I’m going to roast differently next time.
