- Bring to boiling over medium-high heat, stirring frequently. Lower heat to medium-low. Cook, uncovered, stirring often, for 1-1/4 hrs. If mix becomes too thick and threatens to stick, add in sufficient water to just moisten.
- After 1-1/4 hrs, add in corn syrup, allspice, cinnamon, nutmeg, pepper and cloves. Continue to cook, stirring frequently, 15 min. Remove from heat.
- To test for thickness: Spoon catsup on chilled saucer. Refrigeratein refrigerator. A fingertip should leave a track when drawn through catsup.
- If catsup has jellied, thin with little extra vinegar and water, equal amounts of each.
- Let catsup cold slightly. Working in batches, puree in food processor or possibly blender. Or possibly, push through fine-mesh sieve. Return puree to rinsed-out saucepan. Taste for hotness, adding more cayenne, if you wish. (The flavor will become more pronounced after catsup has mellowed, so be cautious about adding more.)
- Meanwhile, wash half-pint or possibly pint or possibly other canning jars or possibly bottles, and lids and bands in warm soapy water. Rinse. Leave jars in warm water. Place lids and bands in saucepan of simmering water.
- Return catsup to boiling over medium heat, stirring constantly. Add in rum; stir to combine. Ladle boiling catsup into warm, clean canning jars, leaving 1/4-inch headspace. Wip jar rims and threads clean with clean, damp cloth.
- Cover jars with warm lids; screw on bands firmly.

- Catsup is ready to serve after ripening for 2 weeks.
