This is our first savory condiment from June Taylor - and it's the freshest, most flavorful, tastiest ketchup you will ever put in your mouth. We bet it will instantly bring a smile to your face.
In true June Taylor fashion, this ketchup was created with an artist's compassion and eye for excellence. As always, all of the work is done by hand, which is really what makes June's creations so especially distinctive. And don't think that there is a bevy of workers to help her out - when she has too much fruit to deal with, she brings in one more person . . . bringing the grand total to three!
To make this ketchup, June starts with organic, dry-farmed Early Girl tomatoes to which she adds sugar, white wine vinegar and (secret) spices. The result is ketchup nirvana.
About the Producer
From her kitchen in Berkeley, California, June Taylor takes advantage of the abundance and variety of local, sustainably grown fruit and her English heritage to produce a mind-boggling array of outstanding marmalades and conserves.
She uses the best seasonally available fruits, including those ignored by large-scale producers. No batch of delicious fruit is too small for June. Making every attempt to stay local and organic, she is interested in high quality and good flavor, and so if a particular fruit is substandard or poor she will pass on it that season and try something else.
The fruit is hand-cut and then cooked. She adds only minimal amounts of sugar and no pectin, based not on a formula but on taste, and so each batch is different. She would rather produce a soft set preserve in which the fruit shines through than meet some artificial expectation of how stiff it should be. The process is involved and labor intensive, but once you've tasted them you'll wonder why anyone does it differently.
Available in very limited quantities.
