Heirloom: Ketchup/Catsup

This recipe has been handed down to me from my great-grandmother’s recipe collection.  Originally written in German, it was translated to English; now I’m sharing it with you.  Wonderful, alongside of April’s heirloom recipe (BBq Sauce) at a barbecue/picnic or with March’s National Day of Something on a Stick (Corndogs).
