- Place the raisins, onions, garlic, tomato paste, bananas and 2/3 cup honey vinegar in the bowl of a food processor fitted with the metal blade. Process until smooth and pour into a large, heavy saucepan.
- To the banana mixture in the saucepan, add remaining 2/3 cup vinegar, 3 cups water, brown sugar, salt and "Picante" Spanish paprika. Stir to combine.
- Bring mixture to a boil over medium-high heat, stirring often. Reduce heat to low ad cook uncovered, stirring the ketchup occasionally, for 1 hour and 15 minutes. If the ketchup gets too thick and begins to stick, add some of the remaining water (up to 1 cup).
- Add honey, allspice, cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves. Cook over medium-low heat, stirring often, for another 15 minutes or until it is thick enough to coat a metal spoon. Stir in the rum and remove from heat. Let cool for 10 minutes.
- Push ketchup through a fine strainer, mashing the solids with the back of a spoon. Let cool to room temperature, pour into glass bottles, cover and refrigerate. Use within 1 month.
Note: Spiced banana ketchup is excellent with pork and poultry.
