Gourmet Ketchup Sauces To Tantalise Your Taste Buds

Ketchup, ketchup, ketchup…. my must have condiment when ever I have my meat. My wife tells me that I would die without it…I just love it.

Just because of Summer, it doesn’t mean that you can’t enjoy ketchup at any time. I know, because I do. Burgers, hot dogs, and steaks are great with this top-selling condiment, it’s actually No. 3 in the US, after mayo and salsa, and well used everywhere in the world. In Australia there have been many a debate at dinner tables and bbqs alike as to what we actually call it…Tomato Ketchup or Tomato Sauce…Whatever the preference, it is never far from the table at any time. 

If you’re not a real fan of just plain old ketchup, then with a few simple tweaks, you can easily make a sauce that can jazz up a plain everyday burger and turn it into an elevated gourmet meal. And the beauty of it is, you can control what goes in, rather than using a supermarket brand that may have mysterious ingredients, it’s easy to go that extra mile and start with an organic ketchup and then simply add spices, herbs, fruit and more and make your gourmet zesty secret sauces. 

You can easily get all of these ingredients on Amazon and have then delivered right to your door for your convenience.
