Harwood Gold’s Farm Style Catsup

Tastemaker
By Kristi Kates | Oct. 6, 2018

Back in the day, catsup — the OG recipes anyway — leaned on such diverse ingredients as egg whites, walnuts, oysters, and mushrooms, but most of those on the shelf today stick to far less imaginative basics: tomatoes, sugar, and corn syrup.
           
Harwood Gold in Charlevoix has managed to get back to basics but with far more panache. Their Farm Style Catsup has neither preservatives, thickeners, or time for modern day’s phonetic spelling (read: ketchup).
           
This savory blend of tomatoes, onions, red wine vinegar, celery, garlic, and spices is sweetened only with Harwood’s own pure maple syrup, and is gluten-free and vegan, all ready to upscale the burgers at your fall tailgate parties.
           
Available in 8 oz. ($6.95) or 16 oz. ($9.95) sizes. Find it at Parsons Farm, 00061 Parsons Rd., in Charlevoix, or order online at www.harwoodgold.com. (231) 547-2038
