HAVE YOU TRIED... Here at Good Food HQ, we’re always trying weird and wonderful new food products, unusual drinks and interesting seasonal ingredients. This month, we shine the spotlight on a unique condiment…
What is it?
A sweet-savoury ketchup made from bananas, vinegar, chilli, ginger & turmeric.
Bananas in a ketchup?! Who’s behind this sorcery?
Rubies in the Rubble, a gourmet condiment company that uses fruit & veg that would otherwise be wasted. In this bottle alone, two bananas are saved (a whopping 1.5 million bananas are discarded every day in the UK).
That’s all well and good, but how does it taste?
Unsurprisingly, it tastes a lot like bananas! It’s sweet and fruity, but balanced by the sharp vinegar and fiery hints of ginger and chilli.
So how would I use it?
Our experts reckon the sweet Caribbean flavours in this ketchup would be great with spicy jerk chicken or pork, in a bacon sarnie, or as a dip for sweet potato fries. Sounds great. Where can I buy it? From rubiesintherubble.com or ocado.com, £3.50 per bottle.
