"Local ketchup business is alive and Kickin'"

David Bro, for the Orange County Register, Feb. 21, 2013

​Michael Lee's San Juan Capistrano home was the testing center for three months last year when his and three other families came together every evening with plans to bottle a homemade ketchup recipe they had been using for years at family and neighborhood get-togethers. Through 40 gallons of ketchup, 12 to 20 people tested the recipe one french fry at a time before narrowing it to one taste everyone liked.

"We had our original flavor and started on a spicier version," Lee said. "Really it was way too spicy, and the kids helped us to bring it down so they liked it. And they were right."

"This product is a HIT! I was surprised when I read the ingredients that there were no chilies or pepper in the ingredients to give 'the kick', but there is a kick and it's coming from a recipe of garlic, onion and natural flavor. It has a nice clean burn. The ketchup is also extremely sweet - and that's what you taste first. Made with real sugar and not high fructose corn syrup."

"Ohhhhh, am I ever excited to share this week’s recipe! Maili had a stroke of genius with this one. I have always loved meatloaf, but haven’t had it in years because I don’t eat meat. Knowing this, Maili came up with the most scrumptious meat and gluten-free meat loaf. It is so doggone good and I hope that you will enjoy it as much as we are. Oh, and if you like spice, you absolutely must find this Kickin’ Ketchup. Talk about a Silver Lining!"
