Featured Video: Make Fermented Ketchup with our Fermented Veg Kit

Fermented Ketchup is not the ketchup of your childhood. Homemade fermented ketchup is the cool, worldly older sister to the stuff you buy at the grocery store. The ketchup in this natural fermentation recipe is rich in flavor and depth. In this video, Erica from FarmSteady shows you how to make homemade fermented ketchup using natural fermentation.

About Us


Before FarmSteady, we started Brooklyn Brew Shop to help people make beer. But before we started brewing, we were making pasta, cheese, ice cream and pretty much anything else we could in the kitchen. Whenever we ate at a restaurant and noticed the word “housemade” on a menu as in housemade ricotta or housemade pickles, we’d say to each other: “Let’s make that in our house… or at least our apartment.”

So much of what tastes great doesn’t need a lot of equipment, space or even a ton of practice. With high quality ingredients and some knowledge, the possibilities for what you can make from scratch are nearly endless. Whether we’re recreating traditional methods or developing new ones, our goal is always to make something that tastes as good (if not better) than what we can buy in a store or order at a restaurant.

We want to help you understand what it is you’re eating, how it’s grown, how it’s cooked and how you can truly make it your own.

Erica & Stephen, Founders of FarmSteady & Brooklyn Brew Shop
