Before doing research regarding this company, I had no idea that ketchup does not have to contain tomatoes. But the Ketchups of Yesteryear were made from some unusual ingredients. They were made from oysters, walnuts, mushrooms, almost anything.
While the Hymen Pickle Company produced several products, the Hot Oyster Catsup was one of their top labels.
They had a large farm in Medora, and a storefront in southern Indiana.
