Ketchup: King of Condiments

This light-hearted history of ketchup delves into little-known facts about the condiment's origins, development and interesting uses. For years, Americans have dolloped this simple mix of tomato paste, vinegar, corn syrup and salt on everything from hot dogs to scrambled eggs, pasta and even ice-cream. Ketchup: King of Condiments features a quirky cast of characters and places, including an avid ketchup bottle collector from Detroit, the "World's Largest Catsup Bottle" in Illinois, and an insider's tour of the H.J. Heinz Co. plant in Ohio. Along the way, author and food historian Andrew F. Smith chronicles the history of tomatoes and this American staple.
