A good slightly spicy slightly sweet catsup substitute for those who don't like or can't have tomatoes.

Easy recipe to make. I made this twice. The first time I found it way too sour & tart for my taste. So I altered the recipe by using 6 cups of homemade crab applesauce, instead of 4, 1/2 cup brown sugar & 1 1/2 cups vinegar, & followed the rest of this recipe to a T. It was a lot better the second time. Made it sweeter. Works great with red meat & proteins. Thanks!
