Today on Good Food, Deep End Diner Eddie Lin talks to Ernesto Uchimura of Plan Check about his signature condiment – ketchup leather. Essentially ketchup leather is a fancy farmers market driven fruit roll up that Chef Uchimura puts on his hamburgers.

What’s your vote – pure genius or gotcha gimmick?
