Cranberry Ketchup~ A La DiStasio~

I just LOVE that show..Friday nights my favorite activity is watching her..her guests..the gorgeous cinematography..
She's so charismatic and many of her guests are also..

On this particular episode..there were some Christmas treats..

Turkey Tourte..looked wonderful...and they suggested serving it w/ a cranberry ketchup..
I knew I would try it the next day..I had everything on hand..

It's's got Madras Curry in it..and you use your hand held motor blender..

La Recette~

1 onion chopped
1/3 cup of oil

10 cups cranberries
a generous pinch of salt
1 tablespoon of Madras Curry
2 cups of Maple Syrup..

Place all ings in a pot..bring to a boil..simmer ap 30 mins until skins pop.. Use your hand blender to puré in sterilized jars..

My notes.. I halved the recipe..My cranberries had been frozen..they had said it would be didn't take 30 mins to cook..It bacme thick enough sooner than later and they popped sooner than later..
They suggest that you can pass through a sieve if you wish..I didn't..
I did hot water bathe my pots after~

This will be served as an accompaniement to my son-in-laws fabulous Turduckken(SP?) on the a condiment will work for tourtière also..a turkey sandwich etc..the curry gives a nice flavor~You don't need a lot~

Hope everyone likes it..Jacques did~


  1. Beautiful Monique, lovely recipe and FAB colour as well as photos!

  2. What a wonderful recipe!!! But cramberry must be fresh, right??? because here in Italy we don't have them but dried!! :(

    HAve a nice day, hugs, Flavia

  3. Yes fresh Flavia.. fresh frozen or fresh..not dried..

    ..have a great day ladies..

  4. Un gros merci! I have never heard of La DiStasio You are introducing to a new program as well as a new site. Will be checking this out; you know I love cooking shows. Ton ketchup a l'air tellement bon!

  5. That does look good. Ketchup with curry is right up my alley. I have never seen the show though... a Canadian thing, Yes?

  6. Yes..she is from Montreal.. has a few beautiful cookbooks..the show.. she's perfect:)Perfectly everything..and her show is top quality..From beginning to end~

  7. Oh, the color of the ketchup is just fantastic! Wow and of course your photo just makes it look like it is in the middle of a snowscape. How fun to try it on the turducken (spelling again!) I have seen that on a show but never had it. I bet it is amazing.

  8. Une recette bien alléchante... Je te vois très enthousiaste...
    Lorsque je suis allée en Turquie, j'ai toujours bien mangé... beaucoup de ragoûts... mais si délicieux! des épices qui me reviennent encore!...
    Les photos qui accompagnent ta publication sont toujours fascinantes...
    Je te fais de gros bisous

  9. Beautiful--and they sound delicious! What a nice treat to have on hand to send home with holiday guests.


  10. This is definitely different but something worth repeating!!!!

  11. It is very different..that's what I love about her show..always something unique..last Christmas..the Pine Tree salt etc..But she is also very earthy.. simple..elegant..her guests add a touch of whimsy.

  12. I so wish her show was available here! I've not had Turducken but have read lots about it. It just be a wonderful treat and only made better by this lovely ketchup. I LOVE cranberries!

    I see a familiar stocking :)

  13. Hello Monique, un petit mot pour vous dire que je suis à nouveau sur la toile, bises et bonnes fêtes de fin d'année, Miette

  14. I love that show too! That ketchup loks and sounds amazing.



  15. Your photo is beautiful, Monique. It couldn't be more festive. I add a little curry powder to my cranberry sauce and we love it! I am sure this is heavenly on a turkey sandwich.

  16. Love anything with curry in it! Can't wait to try it.

  17. Bonjour te rends visite!:)

    Happy Holidays everyone..Hope to share a few more little things before Christmas.Thank you.

  18. This is a very nice recipe and so festive this time of year. I'm always looking for new ways to make things with fresh cranberry. Thanks so much for sharing!

  19. This sounds like a great addition to a turkey sandwich which I love anytime of the year. I wish we could get TV from Canada. We are so close yet so far when it comes to programming on TV.

  20. I must admit we don't have numerous shows..but the ones I love..I love..
