Is there a difference between ketchup and catsup?
Asked by Gayle Bailey in Condiments, Food & Cooking
What is the worst condiment?
In the land down under where I'm from, I must say vegemite is hands down the worst thing that has ever entered my mouth, and there's been some crazy stuff in there before, lemme tell ya. That stuff is repugnant, vile, and abhorrent. We spread that around on our back patio to keep the gnats and kangaroos away it's that bad.

What makes fancy ketchup so fancy?
The “fancy” designation, which you’ve probably seen on Hunt's bottles or McDonald's ketchup packets over the years, actually used to be the USDA’s highest rating for ketchup. It has (somewhat mysteriously) fallen out of use recently, though; its current equivalent is U.S. Grade A ketchup. Ketchup can get an A, B, or C grade. To get an A, ketchup has to be at least 33 percent solid and have good color, consistency, flavor, and finish, as well as earn at least 85 points on the USDA’s 100-point scoring system. The USDA still uses “fancy” to describe the quality of some other foods (apples can even be extra fancy), but by today’s standards, “fancy ketchup” is as meaningless as it sounds.
