About the music: Well, this is funksauce, and when you think funksauce it is hard to imagine, at least for me, any other music to listen to while making this besides the pure unadulterated funk. And by god we have really done it this time. What follows is one hour of music that just makes you want to take your pants off, grow an afro and dance around naked in your house. We cover all the bases, from the classics to those deep cuts you have probably never heard of. So press play, prep your sauce, and get dancing you funky people. Oh, did I mention that Falcon Punch mixed this himself, so you know its good.
Serves: all of your ketchuping needs
Prep time: 1-3 hours, depending on your patience level.
1 white onion, diced
2 tbsp olive oil
28-ounce can of whole tomatoes
1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
1/4 (or a litte more) cup brown sugar
2.5 tsp Maple syrup
1/2 tsp Cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground cloves
3 chipotle peppers in adobo
salt to taste
So this recipe is incredibly easy to make, and my oh my is it ever delicious. First, as always, hit play on the playlist and stretch it out a bit before groovin’ and chopping. Dice up your onion and throw it into a medium to large sized pot with the olive oil. Cook the onion on medium low heat until the edges start to brown up a little. Add in the tomatoes from the can along with all their tomatoey juices to the pot and crush up the tomatoes with the back of a spoon. Combine all of the rest of the ingredients into the pot and stir it up gingerly. Bring the mixture to a boil and then let it all simmer for about an hour, stirring when you are so inclined. After the simmering pot reaches a fragrance point so overwhelmingly potent that you can’t take it anymore, throw it in a food processor, or blender, or what have you and puree that shiz. Toss it in the fridge and wait till it cools down. Once chilled, devour it like a relentless beast.
If, after pureeing, the sauce isn’t at a desired thickness, continue to simmer it until it suits your fancy.
