Sir Kensington's ketchup last Christmas when I went shopping at the Real Simple pop-up shop in Bryant Park. They had a bunch of cool and interesting products on display, but it was the ketchup that caught my eye because of the elegant vintage-style packaging and the fact that it's made with no high fructose corn syrup or other funky ingredients.
So much so, in fact, that I bought four 6 jars of it! (Some to give as gifts; some to keep.)
I was even more impressed with the flavor, and been using it regularly since then--even serving it at some private cooking events I hosted this year.
A few weeks ago, as my spoon scraped the bottom of the glass jar, I realized that I would have to quickly replenish my supply. The ketchup is sold at gourmet stores like Williams Sonoma, Sur la Table, Dean & Deluca, and Whole Foods, so it's pretty easy to find, but I was even more excited when I found out via Twitter on Tuesday that Fresh Direct (the online grocery store I use most often) was now carrying it!
Sir Kensington's makes both a regular version and a "spiced" one; the latter is definitely my favorite. It's got a mix of sweet and savory spices (think chipotle, cilantro, honey, etc.) that work beautifully with any number of dishes. (I actually really love it on hot dogs or with crispy panko-baked chicken fingers; it's kind of a great way to adult-up those childhood favorites.)
(If you prefer the old fashioned kind of ketchup, the "classic" is definitely your pick.)
