Guinness ketchup

Guinness ketchup put into action

Tired of the blasé condiments you pick up at the grocery store? Has it even dawned on you that there are other options you could choose to top off that burger or dip fries into? Irish Food Revolution has added the rich smoothness of Guinness Stout into a sweet and spicy ketchup that is a perfect complement to anything you’d eat with regular ketchup. The results are full-flavored, sweet and spicy and you probably have most of what you need already on hand.


  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • ½ onion, diced
  • ⅓ cup granulated sugar
  • ¼ cup brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons dijon mustard
  • ¼ teaspoon ground pepper
  • ¼ cup malt vinegar
  • ½ teaspoon cayenne pepper (reduce or omit if you don’t like spicy heat)
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 16 oz. can fire roasted diced tomatoes
  • ¾ cup Guinness Stout

In a large saucepan, heat the olive oil over medium, then add onions and cook until softened and translucent. Add the remaining ingredients, bring to a boil and simmer for about an hour until thickened. Let cool for a few minutes and add to blender, or simply use an immersion blender. The ketchup should last a few weeks in the fridge.
