Variations on Brownwood Farms’ classic ketchup recipe include:
Bacon Ketchup: Made with real applewood-smoked bacon (without nitrates or nitrites) and a splash of bourbon, for a smoky flavor.
Dill Pickle Ketchup: Tart dill pickles and sweet tomato ketchup make a terrific combination. You can still add dill pickles to your burger, hot dog, or sandwich.
Kickin’ Ketchup: For those who like some heat in their food, ghost chili powder makes it spicy but not overly hot.
