Can you tell the difference in the taste of brands of ketchup?

@Mame,
When I moved from Michigan to New Hampshire, I tasted all the brands of mayo available and decided that Hellman's was it (my mother would buy whatever was on sale, salad dressing or mayo). We ran out one day and I had to buy Cain's. My kids were so upset that I gave the rest of the jar to a neighbor.

A woman I had a talk with in the supermarket said her family didn't care about mayo but they had to eat Heinz ketchup. Frankly, I could tell the difference between Heinz, whatever the other was and the store brand but I didn't think any of them were bad.

I don't eat much ketchup but I have an organic bottle here with only 4 g of sugar and that's actually quite tasty. I don't use the ketchup they offer in restaurants
and fast food joints.

@Zetherin,
I have a friend who makes her own ketchup, as it happens, and I brought my niece to visit her one day, now ten or twelve years ago, when my niece might have been ten. This is a very interesting woman, creative on many levels, architect, design teacher, weaver, artist, great cook, designs gardens for elementary schools, on and on. Fabulous small house they remodeled for themselves, abyssinian cats, la la la. Married to a wonderful painter. Oy vey. But then he died. So, even paradise has severe trouble.

I saw my niece last year. Somewhere in the days of conversation she asked, how is the woman who made her own ketchup?

@Mame,
But I really liked that pan fried noodle recipe, back in the day. I'm in Albuquerque though. Talk about miserable chinese food. Plus, the packages of chinese noodles at the market are made for a small mouse.

So what do you put on your French fries dear CJ?
Mayonaise? Vinegar? Salad cream? Poutine? Perhaps you don't partake in French fried potatoes?! Shocked

@tsarstepan,
Actually, I feel the same way about ketchup on french fries that I feel about crackers in soup: nyet. Miss Manners once wrote that she does not crumble crackers into her soup as she dislikes flotsam.

yes

PC (the one with the dark label) first
Heinz next

hate most home-made/craft ketchups

I'd rather have an old-style Canajun chili sauce than other ketchups

use mild or medium salsas in a few preps that call for ketchup

I don't distinguish between brands per se, but I find "catsup" superior to "ketchup."

Specifically, catsup ******* rules while ketchup takes like ****.

Nothing really, I like the taste of french fries alone. When having them at
home I might add a bit of mayonnaise and a bit of tomato paste and mix it up.

Scrambled eggs with green peppers and a little chipotle catsup...works wonders!

@Zetherin,
Hi Zeth!

It was tagged as 'Philosophy'. I felt the need to alter this.

Kind regards!

It took me so long to respond because I feinted as soon as you posted this reply and I just became conscious right about now.

a bit of mayonnaise and a bit of tomato paste and mix it up.?! Sounds like DYI holistic ketchup if made completely homemade.
