In many tropical
countries where bananas are more common than tomato
es, many condiment
s are made from bananas instead of the ketchup
-based sauces that are more familiar in America
. One of these refreshing differences is Jufran, a red banana ketchup made in The Philippines
that has permanently converted me away the plain old American stuff. Most people should be able to handle the hot Jufran, which features a pleasant chili
heat without an overpowering vinegar taste.
I've pretty much stopped eating french fries
because so few restaurant
s offer Jufran as a condiment, so I've started baking more tater tots
at home instead. You should be able to find medium-sized glass bottles of Jufran at Mexican or Asian grocery stores for about US$1.75. Go there for the Jufran, and who knows what else you'll find while you're there.
