if tomatoes are fruits, doesn't that mean catsup is a jam

I'm not sure...aren't jams supposed to be somewhat jellied? Tomatoes don't seem to have much pectin, and catsup doesn't set like most jellies or jams I've seen.

I think it would be more of a fruite puree

Want to know the origin of the name ? ...

In traditional written Chinese, tomato is 番茄, and juice is .

In Hong Kong (Cantonese speaking), 番茄 is pronounced faan-keh, and is pronounced tsap.

When combined as 番茄汁, faan-keh is shortened to keh, making the combination pronouced as keh tsap, which when pronounced in English is ke-tchup or ca-tsup.

Corn syrup is often an ingredient in ketchup. So like a fruit smoothie I think?

I don't know what catsup is, but from this conversation it sounds horrible.

Tim, it is truly horrible. it is like a steak sauce without the spices. the most amazing thing I have heard for a while is that president Trump likes catsup(ketchup) on his steak

Jeanne, I think you are right. the corn syrup ruins it. it makes it junk food

Ketchup on steak!! No thank you.

On my first ever visit to the United States way way back on my 21st Birthday I had steak with "A1 Steak Sauce". It was pretty good and I found it to be very similar to "HP Sauce" also known in the UK as "Brown Sauce".
