Roasted Red Pepper Ketchup

By David Harbilas

Yes, this does contain tomatoes!

In fact, roasted red pepper is just included as a “seasoning” to a regular homemade ketchup recipe.

The entire process is quite simple, though time consuming.

For a short-cut, simply puree roasted red peppers and fold into commercial ketchup. The results are a bit more satisfying, however, if done from scratch.

Makes about 4 cups ketchup

  • 1 red pepper, roasted, peeled, and seeded
  • 2 pounds red globe tomatoes, peeled, seeded, and rough chopped
  • 1 pound roma tomatoes, peeled, seeded, and rough chopped
  • ½ cup onion, diced Read the rest of this entry »

By Vanessa Richins

It’s funny how sometimes the smallest things can make the biggest difference.

In West Virginia, Menis Ketchum used ketchup to propel himself from an unknown Democratic lawyer to the newest state Supreme Court judge.

Ketchum had a problem. As an article in the Charleston Daily Mail discloses, a poll that he conducted showed that only 4% of people even knew who he was. Tom Vogel, executive director of the state Democratic Party, suggested that Ketchum do a ketchup ad.

His ads are set in Read the rest of this entry »

Ketchup Banned in English Schools

By Vanessa Richins

In England, schoolchildren will no longer have a favorite condiment available.

Many schools there have decided that ketchup is too high in sugar and salt.

They are also banning Marmite, a salty yeast extract used in sandwiches.
