#TIL Ketchup, both the #condiment and the #word, originated in China's Fujian province. It was originally made with pickled #fish.

Known as Ke-tchup in #Fujian's #Hokkien dialect, traders brought the #sauce to #Malaysia and #Indonesia where it was picked up by #Dutch and #English sailors.

The original #recipe tasted more like #Worchestershire sauce than today's #tomato-based variety. In fact, it took hundreds of years for someone to invent tomato-ketchup. It was far more common to make #Ketchup from #lemons, #walnuts, #elderberries, #mushrooms, or even #beer.
