This is apparently a real product and I was compelled to watch the video all the way through. The production is great -- very clear audio and crisp video, plus the narration is brisk and amusing. You have to wonder how a person who is capable of all that decided to do the whole thing on a velour sofa, though.
According to Wikipedia, invented in the United States in the 1950's.
For those who don't even know what it is: French dressing, in American cooking, is a creamy, ketchup-based dressing which varies in color from pale orange to bright red. It can be made by blending olive oil, vinegar, tomato paste, ketchup, brown sugar, paprika, and salt. Western salad dressing is another variation of french dressing.
However my daughter cooks spare ribs with a sauce made of ketchup Coke and honey - I think. May d the honey is not necessary. It tastes good actually. Gaston la gaffe - a cartoon character - was a fan of morue aux fraises. Cod with strawberry 🍓. Never saw it on the menu.
I believe that the logic of putting honey or molasses or brown sugar in sauces for baked (such as ham) or grilled meats is because of how the sugars caramelize and deepen during the cooking process. In other words, it's to enhance flavors, not to make the meat taste sweet.
