What if we was to do the unthinkable with our burgers, as we watch the Super Bowl?
Now that I have your attention, lets talk about ketchups for a second. It's made with tomatoes. There done with that subject. What? No I'm not done with the subject, but I just cant stop thinking. Why does it or where does it say that all ketchups have to be made with tomatoes?
Why can't ketchups be fun and flavorful? Well, I think it's time for a revolution. A war with the ketchups!
Here are just three of my favorite types of ketchups.
Select 4 pounds ripe grapes, white or black. Remove the grapes from the clusters, wash and drain them. Place them in a stockpot with 2 cups of water and boil the mixture until the fruit is cooked to a pulp, stirring it frequently. Rub through a sieve and to the sieved pulp return to the pot and add 1 cup of vinegar. Boil over moderate heat for 4-5 minutes. Blend together 3 cups sugar, 3 teaspoons of cinnamon and 2 teaspoons each ground cloves, ground mace and salt. When thoroughly mixed, add to grape mixture. Cook until the ketchup is the consistency of heavy pulp with no free liquid to separate from the pulp. Pour the ketchup into hot jars and process them in boiling water bath for 5 minutes. Seal and store in a dry cool place until ready to use.
