Ketchup: It's Red Magic

I got this wonderful pamphlet cookbook from a lot on eBay, and am not sure of the year. It is filled with weird recipes and really cute drawings. Over the next few days I'll share these.

Inside the cover it says "It's Red Magic." then it has Appetizers made with Ketchup, including:
Red Magic Dip

Blend 1 package onion soup mix with 1 pint dairy sour cream and 3 to 4 tablespoons Heinz Tomato Ketchup Cover; chill at least 1 hour.

Coral Cream Dip

Add 1/3 cup Heinz Tomato Ketchup and 2 tablespoons Heinz India Relish (??) to 1 cup dairy sour cream.

Stuffed Celery

1 package (3 oz.) cream cheese

1 tablespoon Heinz Tomato Ketchup

3 tablespoons finely chopped pecans

Combine ingredients. Stuff crisp celery with mixture. Chill. Makes 1/2 cup.


This reminds me of the book Mrs. Pig's Bulk Buy where she buys only ketchup to feed her many little pigs as that is all they want to eat. Soon they are sick of it - it is a lot funnier than I am describing.

Heinz India Relish

I have to say that I have used Heinz Ketchup in recipes as a substitute for tomato puree and it makes great Marie Rose sauce. What I like about it is that it doesn't have loads of artificial ingredients in it. Looking foward to some more Red Magic!

Great find! And gee, the Corning dish pictured the front with the blue flowers is the type my mom had when I was a kid... and she did use ketchup in cooking too ;)
