I like cumin particularly for Mexican dishes. It gives the distinctive flavor without any heat.
This is a very good explanation of the difference. Thank you for taking the time to share that.

It adds a nice touch to bread. Sprinkle some in when making the bread dough. Or else, sprinkle it on top of the bread before baking.

This sauce sounds great, but I hate ketchup... substitute the ketchup for a strong BBQ sauce and be sure to include a good amber ale beer for liquid. This will turn out amazing!!!

Fair enough. But IMHO, after you add all of the ingredients to the ketchup base, the finished product is basically a strong bbq sauce. Especially if you add the liquid smoke....

You're right, it is. And I have been known to use ketchup in my own sauces, in small quantities.

Your recipe truly does sound delicious. Don't worry about me, my problem is all in my head. I always seem to taste the darn ketchup, like the kid that claims they can taste the well-hidden veggies in their meal :)
