Pickled Walnut and Date Ketchup Recipe

Matt’s tip – The ketchup is amazing with a full English breakfast or our butchers dry cured bacon for the ultimate bacon sandwich.  The pickled walnuts will be available to purchase from our Farm Shop or at any premium supermarket.

INGREDIENTS 

1 Jar of pickled walnuts 330g 

300g dates

200g white wine vinegar

200g dark brown soft sugar 

200g light brown soft sugar 

Pinch of sea salt – to taste

Pinch of Black Pepper

 

METHOD

Remove the pickled walnuts from the jar, place the walnuts in a blender and pour the liquid into a small saucepan.

Add the white wine vinegar and the dark and light brown sugar to the saucepan, place on a low heat and bring to a simmer to dissolve the sugar. 

Place the dates in a bowl and pour the liquid over the dates, cover with cling film for about 10 minutes or until the dates are soft.

Place all the ingredients into the blender and blend until smooth. Pass the ketchup through a sieve to remove any small bits and it leaves you with a velvety consistency ketchup.

Allow the mixture to cool, place in an airtight container and store in the fridge and bring out for the ultimate breakfast accompaniment! 

Enjoy!
