It arrived on Tuesday while I was in Montreal. It was a gift box with a couple bottles of Nanny Hudson's Homestyle Ketchup, a large measuring cup and a thermometer.

and Arthur Hudson
Nanny taught her three daughters and two daughters-in-law to make their family favourite, Homestyle Ketchup. Many of her sixteen grandchildren enjoyed this preserve and went on to make it for their own families. Jars given as gifts have been happily received by friends and relatives who cannot take the time to make this family favourite, termed "red gold" by some.
A few years ago, a couple of the Hudson cousins began to inquire why Burnbrae has never considered making available Nanny Hudson's ketchup to all the those who enjoy Burnbrae Farms eggs. Nothing goes better with scrambled eggs and omelettes than a big spoonful of Homestyle Ketchup. Sadly no one listened. Then, Margaret Hudson, President of Burnbrae Farms, ran out of Homestyle Ketchup and had no time to make it!
It is now with enormous pride that we offer you our family's speciality. This preserve, with its beautiful aroma, evokes so many happy memories for us. Our Nanny was beloved in the small village of Lyn where many of the children called her Nanny Hudson. We hope that as you savour our product, you share in her warmth and love.
In addition, there are also a couple coupons for a dozen eggs and Egg Creations, and two recipes that sound delicious ... one for Nanny's Apple Maple Pork Ribs and Gourmet Mexican Fried Rice.
Can't wait to try the ketchup!
September 6 update: I BBQed a burger for lunch today and tried the ketchup. It was chunky, which was fun. It tasted sweet and was delicious!
