Hark! I've Figured Out the Best Way to Get Ketchup Out of a Bottle

  Hark! I've Figured Out the Best Way to Get Ketchup Out of a Bottle What's the best way to get ketchup out of a bottle? A fascinating question, one you may believe is too pedestrian to merit serious, sustained scientific inquiry. Well, you're wrong. Last month, Dr. Anthony Stickland, a physicist at the University of Melbourne's School of engineering, presented his findings on how to get this smooth, soft solid made of tomato and vinegar out of a glass bottle. By nature, ketchup's concentration of solid particles means that it's got a lot of give, akin to toothpaste or paint. Coaxing it out of a bottle requires reserves of patience and encouragement, and Stickland has outlined a three-step process to make it a bit simpler. Please follow along. Jersey Tomato Ketchup (3-Pack) Spicy, Curry & Smoky Ketchups (3-Pack) 1. Shake the bottle. Keep the cap on and “briefly invoke your inner paint shaker,” Stickland instructs. This will distribute the solid particles in the ketchup more generously within the bottle. (Make sure that you keep the bottle’s lid on.) 2. Turn the bottle upside down and thrust it downwards, stopping after a bit. This will goad the ketchup towards the bottleneck. You're almost free, table sauce genie. 3. Twist open the cap, tilt, aim, and pour that ketchup out. Remove the cap now—this can actually be very difficult! Once that's done, you may want to begin with tilting the bottle to a 45-degree angle and increasing as you go. Point the bottle opening towards your food.
