I'm on a bit of a ketchup kick.
May all time favorite is Heinz.
In my opinion, Heinz simply is ketchup perfected. And then some.
But then I've been sort of challenged to find a housemade ketchup that is better (to me, anyway) than the classic Heinz iteration.
So, 'Hounds, what say you?
What places make really great in-house ketchup? Good enough to give Heinz a run for its money?
I enjoyed Chef Laurent Quenioux's housemade "green" ketchup at Bistro LQ, served with the amazing cheese tray.

Generally I'm with you... I don't like most housemade ketchups including Umami... their flavor profiles are always off. But the one that is closest to Heinz, but still gives off a good flavor is at Chili Addiction on La Cienega... I'd even take theirs over heinz...
