Ketchup is one of Amercia's favorite condiments so you may be thinking, if it ain't broken, why fix it? We're not trying to fix it , although we are suggesting a little oomph to our beloved sauce. Variety is the spice of life! Thanks to chef Duran from The Food Networks' s Ham on the Street and TLC's Ultimate Cake Off, we have a bold ketchup recipe to mix things up a bit. The spice we're adding is madras curry powder. The piquent peppery flavor it provides to ordinary ketchup will surely have your guests take notice (in a good way) this barbecue season.
This recipe combines the powder with 100% natural store-bought ketchup but if you're feeling more ambitious, you can make homemade ketchup and then add whatever spices to really jazz up an otherwise typical condiment.
