Author Notes: Tis the season for hot dogs and bbqs and with that comes condiments. As a mother to a ketchup fanatic I would constantly have to deny her requests for bread with ketchup when she was younger. I do cringe slightly every time we lather on the Heinz 57, but what dog is complete without sauerkraut, sweet relish, mustard and ketchup? It made total sense I stir up a batch of the summer’s dynamic duo forgoing some not so natural ingredients. For the mustard I envisioned it sweet to contrast the spiciness but not nearly the overkill of honey mustards we are used to. The ketchup I find similar in taste to the store bought varieties but with a brightness that the others lack.
I hope you find the recipes straightforward and easy. They both yield enough to share. So gather up the empty jam and pickle jars you saved, fill them up and hand them off to those special people who will invite you over to their homes for a summer gathering.

I made this today after soaking seeds overnight. Before blending, I poured off 2 cups of the liquid then added back all but 1 cup as I processed it in my VitaMix. Decided to omit the extra honey as the original sugar made it sweet enough for my taste. I really liked what the beer (Shiner Bock) added to the flavor. I think it would have been too runny if I'd used all of the original liquid.

Mine never did thicken enough. I will drain next time or use less beer.

ok, I went back after I posted and it seems to be thickening already.

it seems really watery in consistency, will it thicken as it ages? or do I need to add some kind of thickener?
