Mango Ketchup

By • May 9, 2012 • 19 Comments



Author Notes: I love mangos. I love spicy flavors. And, true confessions, I love ketchup. I love its complex range of flavors: tart, sweet-ish, spicy, umami-deep. Playing around with a fruity version has been in the back of my mind for a while. Right now, there is a bison burger waiting to be grilled, and this is what's going on it.boulangere

Makes about 3 cups

  • 15 ounce can organic tomato sauce
  • 1 large deeply red mango, peeled, flesh removed, roughly chopped (or 2 small)
  • 1/4 cup Thai-style spicy sweet chili sauce
  • Juice of 1 big lime, or two small
  • 2 large cloves garlic, roughly chopped, or 3-4 small
  • 2 teaspoons sea or kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground allspice
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  1. A note about the Thai-style spicy sweet chili sauce. Roland makes a good one that is the perfect balance (to my taste buds) of spicy and sweet. If you can't find that, Mae Ploy will do as Plan B. Be aware, though, that it is on the sweeter side, so be prepared to add 1/2 teaspoon or so of chili powder to compensate.
  2. Place all ingredients in the bowl of a food processor or in a blender. Purée until completely smooth. Taste for seasoning. The spiciness should definitely be there, as well as the sweet-tart balance among the mango, tomato, and lime. You should get an umami finish from the spices. You should fall in love.

I recently made a corn ketchup to go with some spicy lemongrass sausage banh mi which had some very similar flavors. I think your mango version would be excellent too! I will have to try it next time....lovely color too.

Now this looks addictive! We just got our barbecue out for the season and I can see this ketchup will have a place at the table.

I responded a while ago, Hannah, but it hasn't shown up. I can't imagine a better bbq companion. Save me a spot at the table!

Fabulous! Don't have any bison on hand, but I am positive it will be awesome on a regular burger!

I imagine so, too. I'm also thinking fish sandwich.
