I regularly triple or quadruple this recipe. Keep in mind that this is a guide and the seasonings can be adjusted to your individual tastes. You can add less salt, more hot pepper or onion. Just keep things proportionate. It looks hard but I promise it isn't. It takes time but it is worth it. I work full time but still make this every year. Sometimes I make "hot" ketchup for the daring ones in our bunch. Other times I pretty much follow the recipe. My family now consider commercial ketchups overly sweet and...ordinary.
