Tropical Fruit Ketchup

Once you try this Ketchup, you will never eat Heinz again!

1 (28 oz) can whole tomatoes in puree
1 medium onion chopped
2 Tbsp olive oil
1 Tbsp tomato paste
2/3 cup packed dark brown sugar
1/2 cup cidar vinegar
1/2 tsp salt
1 soaked and seeded ancho chili
1 grilled mango
1/2 grilled banana

Puree tomatoes (with puree from can) in a blender until smooth.

Cook onion in oil in a 4-quart heavy saucepan over moderate heat, stirring, until softened, about 8 minutes.  Add pureed tomatoes, tomato paste, brown sugar, vinegar, mango, banana, salt, and chili pepper and simmer, uncovered sirring occasionally, until very thick, about 1 hour.  (Stir more frequently towards the end of the cooking time to avoid scorching.)  Puree Ketchup in 2 batches until smooth (use caution when blending hot liquids.) Chill, covered, at least 2 hours (for flavors to develop.)
