  • 4 cups (946mL) white vinegar
  • 2/3 cups (142mL) sugar
  • 1 1/2cups (355mL) Heinz ketchup (any ketchup is fine, Heinz is best)
  • Juice, pulp and rinds of one lemon
  • 1/2 stick of butter
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • Black pepper and Texas Pete to taste


Mix all the ingredients and simmer 2-3 hours until desired thickness. Keeps forever so if you want to double the recipe go for it.
