What is Ketchup
Also known as ketchup (although ketchup and ketchup are not the same thing , according to many people), ketchup is a sweet tomato sauce. Ketchup is of Chinese origin and was brought to the West by British sailors. It is worth mentioning that the original version of this sauce did not contain tomato among its ingredients. It was the American Henry J. Heinz who in 1876 added it to the recipe we know today. Currently, this sauce is prepared with tomato (concentrated tomato sauce), sugar, salt, vinegar, spices and aromatic herbs, garlic and onion. Ketchup is considered one of the most popular dressings in the world, along with mayonnaise and mustard.
