"Ketchup has not always been made out of tomatoes. It started out as a general term for sauce, typically made of mushrooms or fish brine with herbs and spices. Some popular early main ingredients include anchovy, oyster, lobster, walnut, kidney bean, cucumber, cranberry, lemon, and grape."

Webster's Dictionary of 1913: "Catchup n. A table sauce made from mushrooms, tomatoes, walnuts, etc. [Written also ketchup.]"
