Useless Fact Of The Week

Ketchup (catsup) was invented in Asian and Indonesian cultures. Its history dates back thousand of years. It was originally called ke-tsiap or kecap. The original recipe was made from pickled fish (anchovies), walnuts, mushrooms, and kidney beans. This was very popular as ke-tsiap in China in the 17th century. British seamen brought it home and the name was changed to catchup then ketchup. Tomatoes were added by New Englanders in the late 1700's.
