When we heard about Aphrodite’s ketchup we were intrigued, because the main ingredient is pomegranate molasses, a very little-used ingredient and something we hadn’t come across in a sauce before.
The owner of the company, Aphrodite (AKA Dixie) is a Professional Cookery graduate of Westminster Kingsway College who was also a finalist on Channel 4’s ‘The Taste’.
One morning while contemplating what she could slather on her bacon and egg sandwich, Dixie discovered pomegranate molasses, her favourite Middle Eastern ingredient, in the cupboard. She mixed it with Turkish tomato puree salça and a blend of spices, and in doing so she unknowingly made her first batch of Pomegranate Ketchup.
After months of tweaking and improving the recipe, Pomegranate Ketchup was born. Late in 2015, Dixie and her partner Will built a kitchen in an East London railway arch and began to produce and sell their delicious Ketchup.
Pomegranate ketchup is sweet but has a very subtle underlying spice. We see it as somewhere between ketchup and relish, and serve it with basically everything.
It goes particularly well with grilled meats, and rich meats like duck and lamb.
It’s also an excellent glaze to use in cooking, just brush it on your choice of meat before grilling, for a sweet and sticky finish.
Dixie has put together a selection of recipe ideas using pomegranate ketchup, just click here to view them.
We really hope you’ll enjoy Aphrodite’s Pomegranate Ketchup as much as we do.
