What is artisanal—made in small batches—all artistic? I don’t know. But it’s hot now.
I tried some artisanal ketchup—now that is a pretty downmarket item to be artisanal but what can I say?
It was delicious! Sweet and tangy.
New Jersey tomatoes are famous—huge, flavor packed, you can imagine yourself with a salt shaker in the garden plunging into one like a big apple!
These babies do not ripen in a train car with gas—they suck down nutrients from the vine out in the field until ketchup-ized.
You can get this from www.first-field.com.
Oh—and this stuff has 60% less salt, 50% less sugar, and 25% fewer cals than the “H” kind in the tall bottle.
Yuh-um! Like summer on the tongue.
