No Tomato Ketchup

With a number of fall fruits on hand I made some fruit based ketchup to serve with a few meals this fall and winter. My spouse has an intolerance for tomatoes but like ketchup on a few of the items that I cook in the colder months, so I started looking around for a recipe that had the flavor and consistency ketchup without the tomatoes I found a recipe on the Low Amine Recipes blog that I could adapt for our needs.
