  • Katchkie Ketchup. Made from the harvest of an organic tomato farm in upstate New York, this ketchup is packed with farm goodness: organic tomatoes and onion, green bell peppers and apples, plus cider vinegar and a load of spices. All of the other ingredients dilute what could be more robust tomato flavor, and the ketchup is very sweet with light brown sugar.
