Ketchup is about as familiar as any food on our shelves, having been with us in its present form since the mid-eighteen-hundreds.
As quintessentially western as it seems, ketchup originated in China, during the seventeenth century, and its progenitors called it ke-chiap; a fish-based sauce bearing little resemblance to French fries’ favourite companion here in Bermuda.
The Primal Kitchen, as their name suggests, deliver a pared-down organic, unsweetened version. As a result, the flavour of the tomato is revealed, as is its surprising natural sweetness.
Try it this month! Available at Lindo’s Market, Devonshire.
