Real name for this "ketchup"?

I was at a family members house and tried homemade ketchup. It was made with cabbage, green tomatoes, and some jalapenos for spice. It put me in mind of sauerkraut. Anyhow, I was wondering if anyone on here knew the "real" name for this mix. I assume that ketchup is the southern country slang for whatever it is. Thanks

I'd call it a green tomato relish or salsa.

Ketchup or carsup may be closer to correct than you think. Check this out.

Around here, we make a relish from cabbage, green tomatoes and peppers called piccalilli. Ours is more sweet than hot, though.
I think what you're describing sounds more like chow chow.

Since this is a "canned" home made recipe.................I posted it in the "canning" section. Why it was moved, I haven't a clue. Thanks to everyone who tried to help.

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.
