Wonderful sauce, just used to make ham bbq.

Well, if ketchup is *not* from scratch one would need to make one's own mustard, brown sugar, steak sauce, dried minced onion and vinegar. I'm quite sure you always make your own.

Using ketchup is *not* "from scratch" though...

MMM Good MMM Good MMM Good!!!!!!!!!!!!!George S.
