Kecap Manis


A thick sweet and salty soy sauce that originated in Java, Indonesia. It has syrupy consistency and a pronounced sweet, treacle-like flavor due to the generous addition of palm sugar. It's used as a flavoring and condiment. Some believe that Kecap Manis was the original Ketchup, brought back to the West by Dutch colonists and then modified with the addition of tomatoes.
