If you are researching ketchup, you will find a lot of different years where the popular red condiment, ketchup, is said to have originated. One of the years is 1879 where Henry John Heinz is said to be the proud founder of the popular dipping sauce. However, after a little more research it shows, that up till the 1700's, tomatoes were believed to be poisonous and in fact were nicknamed "the poisonous apple". However, this theory was dropped when it was discovered that Europeans were eating tomates. So, where the Heinz story is not adding up, is that a scientist in Philadelphia back in 1812 published the first known recipe for ketchup with tomatoes. Until then, tomatoes where no where to be found in the red dressing. So, who do you think is right?
The name for the sauce also spins a tail to have originated from the Chinese word kê-tsiap, which is the name of the sauce derived from fermented fish.
