…and the three weirdest
The foodstuffs that have raised eyebrows this year

Banana ketchup
It’s red, you eat it with chicken, but it tastes like banana. There’s something weirdly wonderful – and distinctly exotic – about banana ketchup. What’s more, it’s really rather good. We just can’t figure out how they made it red, but perhaps some things are better left unknown.
