Paleo Pork Sliders With Smokey Chipotle Blueberry Ketchup

Tonight, it was just my daughter and me. 
So, we made one of our favorites.
Whenever I tell anyone what ketchup i like to make and eat with these sliders...well, I get funny looks.
Can I tell you just how jam packed with flavors this meal is?
Here is what goes into it...
• 1 lb. Ground Pork
• 2 Large Sweet Potatoes, sliced into ½” wheels
• ¼ Cup Almond Flour
• 1 Egg
• 1 Clove Garlic – minced
• 4-5 Slices Uncured Bacon – Chopped fine
• ½ tsp Dried Sage
• Dash Red Pepper Flake
• Salt and Pepper to taste
• Olive Oil
1. Preheat oven to 400f
2. Combine all ingredients in a bowl and loosely mix, 
    by hand.
3. Divide the ground pork mixture into 3 or oz patties.
4. If you haven’t already, clean and slice the sweet potatoes into 
    1/2” wheels.
5. Lightly coat the potato wheels with olive oil, and sprinkle 
    with salt and      pepper.
6. Place the pork patties and the potato wheels onto a foil lined 
    baking sheet.
7. Bake the patties and wheels for 8 minutes, flip all, 
    bake an additional 9 minutes.
8. Remove the potatoes.  If your patties haven’t browned to 
   your liking, return to the oven for a couple more minutes.
9. Remove the patties and build your sliders using your 
    favorite condiments.  

I know that Blueberry Ketchup sounds strange....and Chipotle Blueberry Ketchup even stranger.
But, I promise its gooooood.  Especially with Sweet Potato Fries.
The aromas are a little strong when its cooking...because of the vinegar, but the flavors are killer.

Here is how you do it:

This makes about 3 cups.

  • 2lb fresh blueberries
  • 1 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1 cup honey (can also use maple)
  • 1/4 onion - minced
  • 2 chipotle in adobo (use the actual peppers and not the powder)
  • 2 tsp ginger (fresh grated is best)
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 lime - zest and juice
  1. Dump all of the ingredients into a sauce pan (about 6 qt).
  2. Mix and stir until all are combined well.
  3. Turn stove to high heat and bring to a boil, then reduce heat to medium to medium-high and simmer the berries for about 30-40 minutes. (It will thicken).
  4. Remove from heat and LET COOL before pouring into a blender. (Alternately, you could use a stick blender (immersion blender).)
  5. Taste and adjust seasonings.
  6. Will keep in the fridge 1-2 weeks.
