During my lifetime, US tomato catsup (or "ketchup") got sweeter

"Sit up in a bead, like caulk." THAT is good, Jenise. That is going into my Food Quotations file
The recipe I posted is in the "Picked Foods" section of the book. I believe Catsup was originally a way to pickle, thus preserve, fresh tomatoes.Jenise wrote:Max and Howie, on my first trip to Vancouver, I had a snack of Bison Ribs with Homemade Catsup at the Rain City Grill on Denman St. I, not a ketchup fan at all, ordered it out of sheer curiosity for both, and it was a revelation of spice and tang. This was a delicious sauce, and it gave me my first view into the original creation that predated the bottled goop, which since it is ubiquitous and had been around all my life, I had never wondered about the origins of. This recipe looks like it would get to about the same place as the Rain City version.
Just thinking about it makes me want a batch of French Fries.

But then, I would have that view because on pain of death you couldn't get me to dip a french fry into mayonnaise. It looks like snot.
