We've been making our own ketchup and chili sauce for over 20 years. After trying numerous recipes, we settled on this one as our all-time favorite. It is an adult version of that stuff you can buy that has all those unknown quantities of unknown things in it. Oh, and if you happen to have an empty 20-ounce squeeze bottle from brand H, rinse it out and use it to store this one!
