Peach Ketchup

imageThose of you who know me well probably saw this one coming. I have peach trees in my garden and one is very bountiful this year.imageIn my quest to find the best nightshade free ketchup, of course this recipe was bound to come. This one comes neck to neck with the raspberry ketchup. Time will only tell which ones my favorite.


2 cups cut peaches

1/4 cup apple cider vinegar

1/2 tsp salt

1 clove garlic minced


Combine ingredients in a sauce pot and bring to a boil over medium heat. Reduce to a simmer for 20 minutes. Allow to cool and then purée with immersion blender. Keep in  refrigerator for several days or freeze in ice cube tray to thaw small amounts as needed.image



Grilled Broccoli

imageWe love broccoli at my house. We eat it every week. In the summer we try to cook most things on the grill. Red Palm oil is a delicious, densely nutritious oil with anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. I love it because it’s so good for you, the flavor is amazing and it gives a rich color to your food.image

My red Palm oil is nearly liquid at this time of year, so I don’t melt it before tossing the broccoli. If yours is too hard to toss, just melt it fir 30 seconds in the microwave or on the stove top. At the stage on my AIP journey I have been able to add wine back in my diet. I can drink wine occasionally and definitely cook with it. If you are strict AIP, just leave the wine out. You can use twice the oil instead or replace it with bone broth. I usually make my bone broth from scatch, but I’ll link you to a broth that I have tried while traveling. Grill this broccoli until it’s done to your liking. I like mine crisp, but not burned.


4 cups of broccoli florets

2 TB avocado oil, divided

1 TB Red Palm Oil

1 1/4 tsp pink salt, divided

1/2 TB white wine or bone broth


In a large bowl, toss broccoli in 1 TB avocado oil, 1 TB red Palm oil and 1 tsp salt. Pour broccoli into a grill basket. Mix 1 TB avocado oil , 1/4 tsp salt and 1/2 TB wine in a cup and set aside. Grill broccoli in the basket for 35-45 minutes flipping the basket and shaking it up from time to time. Drizzle the broccoli with reserved oil mixture occasionally while grilling to keep it moist.
