Ever put ketchup on something? What do you think ketchup is?

Hmmm. My first impression was to agree with Chas. However, I do like  
ketchup, although I often find it bland. However, this sounds like a  
redaction question. My first thought of "vinegar stewed tomatoes" was  
of mostly whole tomatoes, or somewhat squished tomatoes, floating in  
vinegar or at least covered in vinegar, similar to those peppers in  
vinegar you can buy in jars. I think of ketchup as being much more  
processed and pulverized with more stuff added such as sweeteners and  
maybe a thickener.

Perhaps this is just an example of two people with two different  
redactions for the same ingredients. There really wasn't a recipe  
given.  Or maybe my idea of ketchup creation is wrong.
