Default Re: ketchup

Not as crazy as it sounds. When ketchup was originally invented as ke tsiap in 1690 it was made of picked fish & spices. It wasn't until 100 years later people started putting tomatoes in it, since before then they thought tomatoes were poisonous (they're related to belladonna and nightshade, after all). Then they stopped using the fish all together.
