A history of condiments. Interesting. — “Today, you can tell how strongly a man or woman yearns for freedom by counting the condiments in his or her refrigerator.” — I’m not going to bother to count mine but the door shelves in my refrigerator are full. Also, hollandaise sauce is not a condiment and most hot sauces are bland. Even if they’re very hot.
I do like trying new condiments. I wish they came in smaller containers, which would make trying more of them easier. My current favorite condiment is Bronco Bob’s Bacon Chipotle Sauce.
UPDATE: Thanks, Sya, (in the comments) for the Periodic Table of Condiments. Hmmm… I have kept some condiments much longer than what’s recommended on the table.
UPDATE II: The table is way wrong, most notably regarding honey which can remain safe to eat indefinitely, depending on humidity. The owner of the website linked in the above paragraph emphatically denies any responsibility for the Table of Condiments and provides a link to this site, which also denies responsibility. It seems no one wants to claim this thing.
