My son texted me one night before coming home and asked if we had fries. I said I only had sweet potato fries in the freezer and he told me to cook it. I did. I thought he would make hamburger for dinner. He came home with this ketchup looking bottle and said he went to an Asian food store. He wanted fries with his new-found ketchup. It was not ketchup at all but tasted like one. It is called Banana sauce. Some Filipinos called it Banana Catsup.

I did not know they can make ketchup from bananas so I did a research on it.

Now, if you are from Batangas, you ought to be proud of what I discovered. Banana ketchup was invented by Maria Ylagan Orosa, a food technologist and pharmaceutical chemist from Taal, Batangas in the Philippines.
