“My mother-in-law gave me this recipe when I was just a bride. I make two batches a year to keep up with supply & demand! The kids love this on sandwiches, burgers, brats, hotdogs, grilled cheese, fries, cake (okay, just checkin'!!!). One institutional size can of ketchup will yield 8 cups.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix and cook in a large roaster pan in oven at 325 degrees for several hours until thickened to your liking.
  2. Hot pack into pint jars; seal with hot lids and rings.
  3. Set jars upside-down on a thick towel for 15 minutes (set the timer); then put right-side up.
  4. As the jars cool, you'll hear some *kitchen music* which means they've sealed nicely.
  5. Store in a cool dark cellar or cupboard.
  6. NOTE: This is the base for my chicken barbecue sauce recipe which calls for 1/2 cup bbq sauce, 1/4 cup honey, 1/4 cup soy sauce--to DIE FOR!
