It was moved because it was not a question about canning or preserving ... the question you asked was debating what to call something that had been canned.
FWIW - ketchup (by any spelling) is a sauce
(a thin to thick liquid) ... and I agree with Constance - what you described sounds more like a relish
Calling what you had ketchup may just be a regional colloquialism
to describe any condiment, probably one not made with mustard.
