Prune Ketchup

  • ACTIVE: 10 MIN
  • SERVINGS: makes about 1 1/3 cups
  • FAST

This sweet-tart condiment reveals Grant Achatz's love of dark fruits and fennel-like flavors such as star anise. It's a great complement to highly seasoned meats, like meat loaf and sausages, and simply cooked duck and pork.

  1. 1 cup pitted prunes
  2. 1 cup water
  3. 1/4 cup unsulfured molasses
  4. 1/4 cup sherry vinegar
  5. 2 tablespoons sugar
  6. 1 star anise pod
  7. Salt and freshly ground pepper
  1. In a medium saucepan, combine all of the ingredients and bring to a boil. Simmer over moderate heat until prunes are very soft, about 20 minutes. Discard the star anise pod.
  2. Puree the ketchup in a food processor. Transfer to a bowl and season with salt and pepper.
Make Ahead The ketchup can be refrigerated for up to 1 week.
