If a tomato is a "fruit"... (in Off-topic)

TheHatchetman July 23 2012 1:42 PM EDT

Does that make ketchup (catsup, whatever!) a "jam"?

On another note. Someone tried saying "no" using the logic that people do not put ketchup on their toast. I said "sure they do", but they insisted that they do not, and I, personally, don't, nor did I know of anybody specific offhand that did. So does anybody here put ketchup on their toast?

Well, I like to dip my grilled-cheese sandwiches in ketchup. Is the toasted bread not toast, just because it has cheese on it? I think not! So, yes, I do put ketchup on my toast, but only if the toast also has cheese on it. :P))

If it is Garlic Toasted Bread then yes I put ketchup on it. I alternate with marinara sauce and yes it is great with cheese also.

No, it does not make ketchup (catsup, etc) a jam. That is because the process of what makes a "jam" a jam is different that how one makes a ketchup.

A simple jam usually takes a "fruit" boiled with sugar.

Whereas in a ketchup, you would usually puree some ingredients with vinegar being the focus.

Ketchup on anything besides hamburgers or fries is dreadful.

I can't stand ketchup at all >.<

Joel July 23 2012 4:38 PM EDT

What about ketchup on hamburgers with "toasted" buns, eh? :P))

I'm the opposite, I have to have ketchup on EVERYTHING.

Some people will put ketchup on literally anything.

ketchup would be a butter, like apple butter.
