Posted:No WAY KIT!! Mayo is the king of kings for chippies!! And I'll be bringing some to Troon next week but don't worry, you won't have to eat it!!

As for vinegar...erm.....I'm kinda indifferent. But I don't use salt I use Aromat which is mucho nicer but doesn't bode well with chips. If there was an outright ban tho I'd have to save the malt stuff....but the clear stuff can dissapear forever for all I care!!

Posted:ketchup I can handle.

vinager seemed very odd to me when I was in the UK in January....but to each their own.

Let me have my ketchup and the vinager folks can keep their vinager.

And vanize? Ketchup may well have lots of vinager in it, but it's also got lots of tomato type stuff. biggrin

Posted:Personally, I think they should do away with all ketchup, mayo, mustard (hasn't been mentioned yet, but it's just as bad), and I guess vinegar now too on stuff.

I don't mean places shouldn't provide these oddities, but they shouldn't mandatorily put them on hamburgers or fries (chips). I can't stand any of them, and it's a good chunk of the reason I refuse to eat at fast food places. It takes forever for them to make a burger without ketchup or some other nasty on it, and then when they do, they usually screw something else up with it as well. So bluck to them all!!!

Ok...so...is it nap time yet?

Posted:ketchup=catsup=anything that sounds similar. It is all tomato paste (hopefully), vinegar, sugar and salt (sometimes no salt). the only real variations are the quality of the tomato paste and how much sugar or salt is used. For example, ketchup in south africa usually used more sugar and typically no salt - which I didn't care for much.

Posted:as far as I can tell, no. To be honest, I've not seen it called that in a while, but some folks call ketchup catsup and I have no clue why.

Mind you, Ketchup is an odd name considering it's tomato and vinager. Why not Vintom or tomvin or tomger or vinato?

Posted:ketchup
SYLLABICATION: ketchup
PRONUNCIATION: AUDIO: kchp, kch- KEY
VARIANT FORMS: also catchup (AUDIO: kchp, kch-) catsup (AUDIO: ktsp, AUDIO: kchp, kch-)
NOUN: A condiment consisting of a thick, smooth-textured, spicy sauce usually made from tomatoes.
ETYMOLOGY: Probably Malay kicap, fish sauce, possibly from Chinese (Cantonese) k-chap, equivalent to Chinese (Mandarin) qi, eggplant + Chinese (Mandarin) zh, sap, gravy.
WORD HISTORY: The word ketchup exemplifies the types of modifications that can take place in borrowingboth of words and substances. The source of our word ketchup may be the Malay word kchap, possibly taken into Malay from the Cantonese dialect of Chinese. Kchap, like ketchup, was a sauce, but one without tomatoes; rather, it contained fish brine, herbs, and spices. Sailors seem to have brought the sauce to Europe, where it was made with locally available ingredients such as the juice of mushrooms or walnuts. At some unknown point, when the juice of tomatoes was first used, ketchup as we know it was born. But it is important to realize that in the 18th and 19th centuries ketchup was a generic term for sauces whose only common ingredient was vinegar. The word is first recorded in English in 1690 in the form catchup, in 1711 in the form ketchup, and in 1730 in the form catsup. All three spelling variants of this foreign borrowing remain current.

so if something is in pulp fiction it makes sense? Sorry, but I don't get your logic on that one...



Besides, ketchup and vinegar are fat free, unlike mayo (so what if the fries are dripping with fry vat lard anyway!)

Posted:<---- been known to eat the pickled onions then sup the picklin' vinegar.

My god, and I thought I was picky! You can beat curly fries, softened up a bit with vinegar, then with squirts of the following around: Brown Sauce, Ketchup, Majonaise, English Mustard, or alternatively all of the above, mixed in together. Then you could have salt and sauce instead of those. Or even better butter some bread, then put the chips on and sprinkle vinegar over the whole lot, leaving you with a warm, moist chip butty.... Hmmmm. ubbloco

You can't beat chips with a lil bit of salt and viniger on 'em. I didn't realise you could use viniger for anything else part from pickled eggs confused

and here's where it all comes crashing down...

Vanize dear, we live in Australia. We dont eat horrible KETCHUP.

We eat tomato sauce.

Which doesnt have vinegar in it

Because vinegar is evil.

It makes people screw up their faces, which while at first is just amusing, in long term affects, quite distressing.

It also makes the chips soggy and completely unappealing to the eater.

hence, I put my vote on the NON vinegar side of this arguement!

Thankyou for your time, thankyou thankyou.

No... thankyou!
