History of Ketchup

Ketchup dates back as far as 1600 AD when sailors traveling to China learned a sauce made of soy or oysters called ‘ketsiap’. This
version quickly changed ingredients to include mushrooms, anchovies, shallots, and lemon peel. Then in the late 1700’s tomato ketchup
appeared in Nova Scotia and started the transformation to today’s sweet tomato version.

Ketchup started to be commercially available in the United States during the 1830’s when a New England farmer bottled and sold his version of
the tomato condiment. In 1837 ketchup gained in popularity when Jonas Yerkes bottled and sold ketchup in quart and pint sized bottles.
Then in 1872 HJ Heinz started to sell what we know today as Heinz Ketchup. Heinz’s recipe is the same today as it was when he placed this well loved
condiment on store shelves everywhere.

The catsup spelling went out of popularity in 1981 when Ronald Regan’s administration declared ‘Ketchup’ a vegetable that could be used in
school lunches. Public outcry caused a reversal of this ruling and today ketchup is back as a condiment.

If you want to try making ketchup for yourself here is an simple recipe that can be modified to satisfy spicy or sweet pallets.
