    Don’t forget about that other cult: Ketchup

    Looks like the police will be playing ketchup.
    Eva is one hot tomato.

    Walnut Catsup For Fish (Credited to: Elizabeth Schramek)

    1 cup English walnuts
    2 cups water to cover
    2 tablespoons salt
    2 cups vinegar
    1/2 teaspoon white pepper
    1/4 teaspoon powdered ginger
    1/4 teaspoon powdered cloves
    1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
    Few grains cayenne pepper
    1 teaspoon minced onion
    1/4 teaspoon celery seed

    Prick each walnut with a steel-tined fork, place in jar, cover with salted water.
    Allow walnuts to stand in brine for a week.
    Drain. Cover with vinegar that has been heated to the boiling point; let stand for a few hours.
    Drain off the vinegar and save it.
    Crush the walnuts to a pulp, combine with the vinegar.
    Place minced onion in a small bag with the spices and drop it in saucepan with the walnuts and vinegar.
    Bring mixture to a boil.
    When it boils, turn down heat and simmer for one hour.
    Cool and bottle. Makes 1 pint.

    Notes from me:

    I’m guessing from the “white pepper” that the vinegar is to be white to, and not dark.
    Another guess on my part is this is why catsup, or ketchup, used to be (and maybe still is in some places) specified as “tomato.”

    There is a conventional tomato catsup recipe here. It’s the 11th comment.

    In the recent past, Heinz made ketchup in the condoments industry, while del Monte and Hunts made catsup.

    Reagan changed that when he tried to make ketchup and not catsup a vegetable. Hunts and del Monte are changing over to the other spelling.

    For years, millions of small children were told catsup actually was a short version of cat soup, and some of the children were told cats went to the catsup factory when they died.


    (No Casey, I would not dream of making my favorite KittyCat into any kind of food. Strokes kitty, while she plots how to get food and litterbox cleaning as she closes her eyes and fantasises about clawing my throat open.)

    He’s still upright…. if he’s the victim, what’s the crime?

    I mean, I know whoever did…um….
    whatever it was…
    probably isn’t playing with a full bottle….
    But who are they labeling a criminal?

    Heinz catsup is mostly hi-fructose corn syrup.

    Hunts is much healthier..

    A father and son tomato were out for a walk. The father tomato was becoming impatient as his son kept falling behind. Finally the father turns around and says to his son “please son would you ketchup”.

    At least it wasn’t salsa, the ketchup extremist cult.

    Heinz is an expert assassin. Perfect vision.
    Especially in hind sight viewing the case.

    @Homer J.

    Actually, according to Pulp Fiction:
    Momma, poppa, and baby tomato were walking down the street. Baby tomato kept falling behind. Poppa tomato turned around and squished him and said, “Ketchup!.”

    And this catsup cult thing was so tragic, especially right after the big salsa scandal.
