Ketchup, Cultures, and County Fairs

This long hot summer is almost over! We've had our first pickle in months at a friend's house on Monday.

We made ketchup from Nourishing Traditions but we spiced it up. We doubled the garlic and tripled the cayenne; Cajuns and Texas boys prefer strongly flavored condiments.

The ketchup will be featured in the Ft. Bend County Fair at the end of the month, BUT the judging is apparently all about presentation. What?!? No taste test? Strangeness

I'm just glad to be back in the kitchen, culturing good food and community connections.
