    1. 1
      Heat the oil in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add the onion and cook until soft and translucent, about 5-7 minutes. Add the garlic and tomato paste and stir to combine, cooking 2-3 minutes until the tomato paste breaks down and melts into the onion and garlic.
    2. 2
      Add the mashed banana and stir until they pick up the reddish-orange hue from the Annatto Oil and tomato paste. Pour in the vinegar and water, stirring to scrape up any browned bits from the bottom of the pan.
    3. 3
      Add the brown sugar, black pepper, ground clove, salt, and soy sauce and stir to combine. Drop the bay leaf into the pan and bring mixture to a boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer, partially covered, for 20-30 minutes. Remove from heat and discard the bay leaf.
    4. 4
      Once cool enough, pour mixture into food processor or blender and puree until smooth (I only pureed about 2/3 of the mixture, adding back the 1/3 that wasn't pureed for a bit of texture). If the banana ketchup is too thick, it can be watered down with additional water. Taste for seasoning and add more sugar if a sweeter ketchup is desired.
    5. 5
      Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 2-3 weeks.
    6. 6
      Optional: For a spicier version, add 1-2 chopped Thai chili peppers or 1 small jalapeno pepper with the onions and sautee. Continue with the rest of the recipe as directed.
    7. 7
      Note: You can vegetable oil if you don't want to make Annatto Oil. To make Annatto Oil - combine 2 cups of canola oil, 1/2 cup annatto seeds, 2 tsps whole black peppercorns, and 1 bay leaf in a large saucepan over moderately high heat. Warm the oil until it just begins to bubble. Remove from the heat and set aside for 1-2 hours to steep. Strain through a fine mesh strainer, discarding the solids. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 3-4 weeks.
