|Where to Learn||Tomatosetta Stone (Floor 255 of Spring Mine)|
The recipe for Ketchup is obtained when you find the Tomatosetta Stone on the 255th floor of the Spring Mine, beside the Harvest Goddess’ waterfall. The best time to cook Ketchup would be in the Summer when you can grow and harvest the ingredients that you need!
Where To Learn the Recipe
You can get the recipe for Ketchup by mining on the very last level of the Spring Mine (Floor 255). Using your hoe on the dirt floor will have the chance to unearth the Tomatosetta Stone, where the recipe for Ketchup is written.
After you find the Tomatosetta Stone and learn the recipe, you can either store it in your cabinet, display it in your farmhouse, or sell it to Huang.
Selling this rare item to Huang can net you between 68,000 G and 77,000 G!
The equipment needed to make Ketchup can be bought from Jeff at the General Store.
The downside is that Jeff sells his kitchen equipment one by one, in 10-day intervals after you buy the first of Gotts’ house remodeling upgrades.
This means that you can only access the next piece of equipment 10 days after the previous one becomes available for purchase.

You only need two ingredients to make Ketchup: Tomatoes and Onions. These are both Summer crops that grow quickly and are relatively cheap, so you can make a lot of Ketchup to use in other recipes!

How To Sell Ketchup
Any dishes made in your kitchen can’t be shipped through Zack and the Shipping Bin. However, you can start selling food to Huang once you become friends with him at 4 friendship notes.
To sell a dish to Huang, stand in front of his counter while holding the item. Don’t interact directly with his sprite, as it will register as a gift instead.
Huang will then offer you a price, which you can actually reject for a chance at getting him to bid higher.
The price range for Ketchup is anywhere between 218 G and 227 G. If Huang offers you 225 G for the item, for example, you can turn him down and try again to get a higher price.
Keep in mind that his bids will never go lower or higher than this defined range, so 227 G is the maximum price you can get for selling Ketchup.
