Traina California Sun Dried Tomato Ketchup {Review} & Slow Cooker BBQ Pulled Pork Recipe



I am a big ketchup fan. A fry (and a few other things) cannot be consumed by me unless I have it. Although I do not use ketchup on anything unusual I do like to use it in my cooking. I had the opportunity to try Traina California Sun Dried Tomato Ketchup and I knew this would be something I liked.

Traina California Sun Dried Tomato Ketchup is a full flavor Ketchup. The gourmet sun dried tomato flavor is wonderful. It takes 4 pounds of ripe Roma tomatoes to make just 1 bottle of Traina California Sun Dried Tomato Ketchup. My family and I enjoyed it on fries and it is was great in my Slow Cooker BBQ Pulled Pork Recipe too!

Buy It

  1. Wow this sounds really interesting! So many ketchup brands don't really offer anything else from the other brands, I love the idea of one that has more seasoning and flavor. I'll have to keep an eye out for this.
