Learn about 20 essential homemade condiment recipes in today’s guide.
Condiments are a basic part of our food these days. Can you even imagine having fries or burger without some sort of condiments like ketchup or mayo? Those are the most basic condiments of course, but there are more, and condiments have lots of uses.
The right condiment can, in fact, make or break a dish (especially when it comes to things like snacks) – like how the wrong BBQ sauce can ruin a BBQ meal. So yes, they are important. And you don’t always have to rely on the shops to get yours (which helps especially during these times of limited access to shops, what with social distancing and quarantines).
You CAN make condiments at home yourself, and fairly easily.
