Pickapeppa Sauce, also known as Jamaican ketchup,[1] is a brand name Jamaican condiment, the main product of the Pickapeppa Company, founded in 1921. It is made in Shooters Hill, Jamaica, near Mandeville.[2] The ingredients (in order on the product label) are: cane vinegar, sugar, tomatoes, onions, raisins, sea salt, ginger, peppers, garlic, cloves, black pepper, thyme, mangoes, and orange peel, aged in oak barrels.[3] The sauce is sweet, sour and mildly spicy. The company makes several variants of the sauce, including mango and extra hot Scotch Bonnet pepper varieties.[4]

One traditional use of the sauce is to pour it over a block of cream cheese, to be spread on crackers.[5]

A noted fan of Pickapeppa sauce is supermodel Naomi Campbell, who carries a bottle with her. [6]
