    Room temperature or refrigerated?

    Growing up, we never put our ketchup in the refrigerator. I don't think anybody I knew did.
    Restaurants left room temperature ketchup on the tables. With normal usage ketchup will be
    used up before it goes bad.

    Then I found out that some people actually keep their ketchup in the refrigerator. Why? I hate
    the taste of a hot french fry dipped into cold ketchup. Fish right out of the fryer? Same thing.

    Same with mustard. I store mustard in the pantry at room temp.

    I'm old. If someone is nice enough to fix my food, I don't complain whether the ketchup is hot or cold.

    I dunk my fries in mayo. Ketchup is gravy for meatloaf and that's all.
