From 2007 files - these instructions
Preparation: Mix the vinegar, water, sugar, ketchup and salt together and bring to a boil. Mix together the cornstarch and water. Add to other ingredients and stir to thicken.
If desired, you can add pepper cut into chunks or pineapples after adding the cornstarch. For a thicker sauce, double the cornstarch while keeping the water constant.
Notes: original recipe had all vinegar, no water. And ¾ cup sugar. Have cut the vinegar by 2/3 and the sugar by 1/3
Also had note to add food colouring if a really RED sauce was desired
