Ingredients

  • 3 - 24 ounce bottle of ketchup (catsup)
  • hot water
  • plain ole cheap vinegar
  • 1 - 4 ounce can of chili powder
  • 1 - 4 ounce can of black pepper
  • 1 - 4 ounce can of garlic salt (SALT, NOT garlic powder!!!)
  • 1/2 cup - sugar (is the ORIGINAL amount, why not TRY that, and adjust to your very own taste after 'brewing' mess up...likewise with Tabasco. See below)
  • 1 - small Tabasco (anywhere from 1 to 4 ounces..start with about 1 oz...you can 'play' to taste after whole mess is completed.
  • 1 - small mustard (size of an apple, just regular ole smear on a hotdog yeller mustard)

Directions

  • Wet Stuff
  • Mix in a large bowl:
  • 3 - 24 ounce bottle of ketchup (catsup)
  • Use the plastic ones, we will refill after making sauce.
  • Fill with hot water, swoosh around and dump contents into bowl.
  • Folks have asked: HOW MUCH WATER? Fill all three bottles, and dump all into 'Wet Stuff'
  • Pour in plain ole cheap vinegar. "THE" recipe calls for just less than a quart, do not sweat this. use anywhere from a pint to a quart, strangely, this amount has scant effect on final product.
  • Put "wet stuff' in a LARGE pan, put heat on "high"
  • by the time it is approaching a boil, you will have "dry stuff' prepared.
  • Dry Stuff:
  • Since you dumped wet stuff out of bowl, why not use for 'dry'?
  • Into bowl, dump:
  • 1 - 4 ounce can of chili powder
  • 1 - 4 ounce can of black pepper
  • 1 - 4 ounce can of garlic salt (SALT, NOT garlic powder!!!)
  • 1/2 cup - sugar (is the ORIGINAL amount, why not TRY that, and adjust to your very own taste after 'brewing' mess up...likewise with Tabasco. See below)
  • 1 - small Tabasco (anywhere from 1 to 4 ounces..start with about 1 oz...you can 'play' to taste after whole mess is completed.
  • 1 - small mustard (size of an apple, just regular ole smear on a hotdog yeller mustard)
  • Stir
  • ...btw, easier to put the mustard in last, and just swirl around till it looks like chocolaty brown tar.
  • Simmer
  • Dump all this stuff into pan on stove now approaching a simmer if you have been quick, and if you rinsed out the catsup with HOT water;-)
  • stir enough to make it evenly liquid...bring to a boil and immediately lower heat to a simmer.
  • 30 minutes, (stir fairly often to avoid sticking).. during which the vinegar will bring sweat to your forehead, and tears to your eyes...think ventilation here.
  • Finish
  • That is it.
  • Remove from heat, pour back into bottles you saved, unfortunately, you will have an excess of sauce. Improvise
