Bulk Ketchup

I have had this huge can of ketchup in my pantry for over a year. I'd been waiting to crack it open until barbeque season knowing that we'd be using large quantities of ketchup. I did some calculating and figured to fill 4 bottles. I had been saving these bottles in the pantry specifically for this purpose & I do the same with syrup bottles. Remember though, that I threw out a bunch of excess bottles when I was cleaning the pantry.

As it turns out the can filled 3 very full bottles with about 3 tablespoons left over so I just left it at 3.

I think this #10 can was between $3.00 & $4.00 at Costco or Cash'n'Carry. Ketchup sale prices tend to run between $1.50 and $2.00 for this sized bottle so buying the big can is the way to go if you'll use this much ketchup over the course of a few months. If you get screaming sales plus coupons the prices probably work out about the same.
