I think we all reach for condiments with a lot of food we eat – ketchup, mustard, hot sauce and so on. Have you ever stopped to read the labels on the containers? High Fructose Corn Syrup, Distilled Vinegar etc.
This article, from David Wolfe, gives recipes for making 5 of the more popular condiments. None of them are difficult – try them and see what you think!
Chances are, if you’ve got even half-baked cooking skills, you’ve attempted to make everything from homemade cakes to pies and brownies.
However, there are a few items in your refrigerator or pantry that you’ve probably never thought about whipping up from scratch on your own – things so basic that you probably never even give them a second thought.
For starters, I am talking about those friendly condiments – the ‘who-knows-how-old’ packets that collect in your kitchen drawers.
But why not make a meal that’s entirely homemade, right down to the ketchup and mayo? It is the only way you’ll be able to harvest the natural, fresh power of those items without all the added preservatives and sugars that come with even organic condiments.
