Jalapeno Peach Ketchup {And A Giveaway}

Sharing is caring!

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.

It’s “ketch-up”.


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.

    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.

    I have been wanting to learn to can, I think the first thing I would try is something simple like apple sauce.

    Those jars are so cute! I would use them to can some tomatoes or some muscadine jelly…or something wonderful!

    I’d love to have the jars to make homemade goodies! And even maybe use 1 or 2 to drink out of! =)

    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. 🙂

    I love anything jalapeño and can’t wait to try this! But where is the jalapeño? Do you use chipotle chili powder?

    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.

    Don’t be ashamed, Shea. I am guilty of drunk-blogging too. 🙂
