Condiments are the unsung heroes of the food world, and while they’ll never get the recognition they deserve when paired with the usual suspects like burgers, hot dogs, or fries, you really start to notice how dry everything gets once they go missing. There’s nothing worse than a dry sandwich.
To better appreciate how important everyday condiments are, we set out to make our own from scratch.
We attempted the big three: Ketchup, mayonnaise and mustard.
Though mustard was definitely the most time-consuming of the three, mayonnaise was probably the trickiest.
Ketchup? Thankfully, the tomato legend was the easiest to make, by far.
Nonetheless, it was definitely a humbling experience making all the sauces we usually take for granted.
In a world without condiments, we’d probably all react like this. Don’t want that at all.
