There is a Ketchup made from bananas

During World War II, there was a wide shortage of tomatoes and on the other hand an rise in the production of bananas. In order to make up for the shortage, María Orosa a Filipino food technologist, invented the “Banana Ketchup”, which was made mainly out of bananas (and was painted with red food coloring to resemble the original ketchup). This strange Ketchup has gained popularity among Filipinos, and to this date it has a significant role in many Filipino dishes.
Now a days you can get it anywhere in the Philippines and also in countries where there are many Filipinos like Australia, New Zealand The US etc.
