In a saucepan over medium-high heat, warm the oil.
When hot, add the onion and celery and cook, stirring, until the vegetables have softened, about 7 minutes.
Add the catsup, vinegar, water, sugar, cayenne and salt and stir well.
Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat to low, cover partially and simmer until the sauce has thickened slightly, 15-20 minutes.
Remove from the heat and let cool.
