In the late 1600′s, Dutch seafarers brought back a spicy condiment from China known as ke-tsiap, or ketchup. Variations in the recipe evolved but in break with tradition we believe tomatoes don’t own ketchup.
As sweet things abound in harvest season our ketchup brings the fruity, bold bite of typical Dutch foraged Terschellinger Cranberry, with a hint of spices/ginger and a sparkle of Lowlander Autumn Ale. Despite the fact Terschelling produces everything from cranberry gin and cranberry hot sauce to cranberry vinegar and cranberry sweets, we didn’t discover a true Dutch cranberry ketchup. So we decided to make one ourselves, cooked with botanicals. This very first cranberry ketchup of the Lowlands is pretty much perfect for topping, dipping, and dressing any Autumn celebration.
