Recipe(s) of the Week: Blueberry Ketchup

Ketchup has a much deeper and longer history of replication before reaching it current state. Ketchup originated in China as a salty pickled fish sauce in the 1690s. This sauce, then called ke-tsiap, was taken back to England by British sailors, where it started getting ingredient additions like mushrooms, anchovies, oysters, and walnuts. 100 years later tomatoes found their way into ketchup. Using blueberries is now more common than you think as a spread on meat and even french fries as in sweet potato fries.

One cup of blueberries provides 24 percent of a person's recommended daily allowance of vitamin C. It has been shown to protect against heart disease and cancer, and help maintain bone strength, mental health and healthful blood pressure. Blueberries were distributed at all three Farms2Table Farmers Market locations in Florence, Mesa and San Tan Valley last weekend.
