Do you spell this ketchup or catsup?
Here in the south it’s ketchup. Who says “CATS-UP”?
Um, that would be nobody. That I know of, anyway.
We put it on french fries, burgers, hot dogs and butterbeans. Yes, butterbeans. I said it. Ok, fine that’s just me, but we do NOT put it on eggs. That, my friends, is nasty. Oh, but I do mix it with mayo to dip fries in. Only when I eat cheeseburgers, though. I know, quirky.
I’m gonna share this fantastic spin on ketchup I made (summer-style with fresh peaches, BTW), but first let me fill you in on a giveaway I have coming up. It’s pretty awesome.
International Can It Forward day, a live event hosted by Bravo’s Top Chef Hugh Acheson in Brooklyn, NY is August 16th. Jarden Home Brands graciously sent me a goodie box for review and now you can win one too. Here’s the package:
- 1 case of the new limited edition Spring Green Heritage Collection Jars pint size
- 1 case of the new limited edition Spring Green Heritage Collection Jars quart size
- The Ball® Fresh Herb Keeper
- A set of the Ball® Dry Herb Jars 4-oz
- The new Ball® Frozen Herb Starters
- Ball® 5-Blade Herb Scissors
- A copy of the Blue Book Guide to Preserving.
I’m literally obsessed with the little dry herb jars. I think I may be obsessed with mason jars in general. I love the vintage green color of the jars (limited edition, BTW).
I made a batch of Jalapeno Peach Ketchup and used my pretty new jars. It’s different, but different in a good way.
- 3 peaches, peeled and diced
- 1 jalapeno, chopped
- 1/2 onion, chopped
- 1/3 cup apple cider vinegar
- 1/3 cup ketchup
- 2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- 1 tbsp honey
- 1/4 cup light brown sugar
- 1 tsp chili powder
- 1/4 tsp cayenne
- Throw everything in your food processor (or blender) and puree until smooth. Adjust seasonings according to taste.

Sometimes you gotta step outside of that tomato box!

I, too, am obsessed w/mason jars! I use them for all kinds of things. Drinks, quick pickled veges, pickled creamy cucumbers, making and storing salads and salad dressings, marinades, I use them for all kinds of things! So, this would enable my obsession even more ;-).

I’ve heard awesome things about keeping salads/lettuce in jars…I think I’d try that. Apparently it keeps the salad fresh for a long time.

So yummy! That appears to be amazing.
CarolsueAugust 14, 2014 at 11:56 PM
I would use them for canning pickled beets

My daughter and I have been wanting to make pickels!
PeterAugust 14, 2014 at 1:17 PM

Monica LavoieAugust 14, 2014 at 10:26 AM
I have been wanting to learn to can, I think the first thing I would try is something simple like apple sauce.
Laura V.August 14, 2014 at 10:14 AM
Those jars are so cute! I would use them to can some tomatoes or some muscadine jelly…or something wonderful!
Melissa BoesAugust 13, 2014 at 10:48 PM
I’d love to have the jars to make homemade goodies! And even maybe use 1 or 2 to drink out of! =)
latanyaAugust 13, 2014 at 8:48 PM
I want to try the salads in the jar
Tamika T.August 13, 2014 at 6:48 PM
I would use them for spaghetti sauce.

Outstanding photos of what looks to be a wonderful ketchup! ~ I don’t enter these giveaways often, but I’m a preserving fool and these nifty tools would come in quite handy. 🙂
SheaAugust 13, 2014 at 5:07 PM
Adam, they are such fun toys for foodies like us 😉
KyleAugust 13, 2014 at 4:47 PM
I love anything jalapeño and can’t wait to try this! But where is the jalapeño? Do you use chipotle chili powder?
SheaAugust 13, 2014 at 5:09 PM
Kyle, thank you so much for pointing that out!! How could I leave that ingredient out of the recipe – it’s there now. I should be ashamed.
Adam J. HollandAugust 13, 2014 at 7:39 PM
Don’t be ashamed, Shea. I am guilty of drunk-blogging too. 🙂
SheaAugust 13, 2014 at 8:04 PM
Oh dear. Adam, we’re officially BFF’s.
