Ketchup (or Catsup) (American English) or tomato sauce (Commonwealth English) is a sweet-and-sour condiment typically made from tomatoes, vinegar, sugar or high-fructose corn syrup, and an assortment of vegetable seasonings and spices such as onions, allspice, cloves, cinnamon, garlic, and celery.[1] Ketchup is often served with fried foods such as french fries and fish and chips and grilled foods such as hot dogs and hamburgers. It is also used to flavor cooked meat and as a base for other sauces. It is a typical accompaniment for the meat pies of Australia and New Zealand.
