A delicious (and historic) alternative to your usual ketchup. Inspired by a nineteenth-century recipe in "The Carolina Housewife", the thick and well-spiced Mad Mary Catsup uses very little sugar compared to modern catsup. Of all the vegetables grown in America, none is more universally loved than the tomato, and yet, for many decades in the early part of the 18th-century, this delightful fruit was shunned by Americans who considered it poisonous. Thomas Jefferson became an early fan, embracing the tomato with revolutionary style. 8 1/2 oz.
The Spanish explorers introduced the tomato into Europe in the 1500s. It quickly gained popularity, especially in Italy, where the potential of the fruit was immediately recognized. In America, even though the tomato was introduced as a food crop and seed was first made available in 1820, the tomato was greeted with suspicion. Between 1870 and today as many as 1000 different varieties of tomato have been developed.
