Banana Ketchup is a popular condiment found all over the Philippines and Mama Z has brought Manila to Manchester with her very own version!
The Philippines heavily relied on imports of tomatoes and with a shortage during the war, a clever lady created the condiment using the local ingredients around her-Bananas. Maria Orosa is to thank for creating this sauce during WW2 and is a house hold name recognised by many Filipinos. Read about her here https://food52.com/blog/24700-maria-orosa-profile
Bring some tropical flavours from the Philippines to every meal with this versatile sauce. Perfect for marinating and dipping, keep an eye out for recipes on Mama Z's socials (@cookingwithmamaz) and blog via her website www.cookingwithmamaz.com
