Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons peanut or vegetable oil

  • 1/2 cup finely chopped sweet onion (about 1 small onion)

  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic (about 2 medium cloves)

  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped seeded jalapeño from (about 1 small jalapeño)

  • 2 teaspoons freshly grated ginger

  • 1/2 teaspoon ground turmeric

  • 1/4 teaspoon ground allspice

  • 1 1/4 cups mashed ripe bananas (about 4 large bananas)

  • 1/2 cup white vinegar

  • 2 tablespoons honey

  • 2 tablespoons rum

  • 1 tablespoon tomato paste

  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt, plus more to taste

  • Water, as needed

Directions

  1. Heat oil in medium saucepan over medium heat until shimmering. Add onions and cook, stirring occasionally, until onions have softened, about 5 minutes. Add garlic, jalapeno, ginger, turmeric, and allspice and cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds.

  2. Stir in bananas, vinegar, honey, rum, tomato paste, soy sauce, and salt; bring to simmer. Reduce heat to low, cover, and cook for 15 minutes, stirring often. Remove from heat and let cool for 10 minutes.

  3. Transfer ketchup to a food processor fitted with a steel blade and process until smooth, about 1 minute. Thin with water as needed to reach a ketchup-like consistency. Season with additional salt to taste. Transfer to an airtight container and store in refrigerator for up to two weeks.
