Hello Friends, Rakshika Jain here again
Today lets make Tomato Soup. I think you do not have any idea about Tomato Soup. Let me explain you how it can be prepared.
What is Tomato Ketchup?
Ketchup is a sauce used as a condiment. Originally, recipes used egg whites, mushrooms, oysters, mussels, or walnuts, among other ingredients, but now the unmodified term usually refers to tomato ketchup. Various other terms for the sauce include catsup, catchup (archaic), ketsup, red sauce, tomato sauce, or, specifically, mushroom ketchup or tomato ketchup.
Ketchup is a sweet and tangy sauce now typically made from tomatoes, sugar, and vinegar, with assorted seasonings and spices. The specific spices and flavors vary, but commonly include onions, allspice, coriander, cloves, cumin, garlic, and mustard; and sometimes include celery, cinnamon or ginger.
The market leader in the United States (60% market share) and United Kingdom (82%) is Heinz. Hunt’s has the second biggest share of the US market with less than 20%. In much of the UK, Australia and New Zealand ketchup is also known as “tomato sauce” (a term that means a fresher pasta sauce elsewhere in the world) or “red sauce” (especially in Wales).
Tomato ketchup is most often used as a condiment to dishes that are usually served hot and may be fried or greasy: french fries, hamburgers, hot dogs, chicken tenders, tater tots, hot sandwiches, meat pies, cooked eggs, and grilled or fried meat. Ketchup is sometimes used as the basis for, or as one ingredient in, other sauces and dressings, and the flavor may be replicated as an additive flavoring for snacks such as potato chips.
