No reference to the former Sec. of State.
There've been lots of threads about the sheer number/variety of condiments most of hounds seem to hoard. But how many of you eat so-called condiments by themselves every now and then? Dips without chips, hot fudge without ice cream, spreads without bread, etc.?
If you're calling "dips" a condiment, then:
ranch dressing spiced up with tobasco - just learned that one this weekend!
chocolate syrup on a spoon, or if lacking utensils then squeezed/poured directly into mouth. Canned (we aren't exactly talking about high cuisine here, people) whipped cream squirted directly into mouth until over flowing. Open refridgerator door impromptu hot sauce tastings (with spoon). Can also be done with mustard. Dips, oh dips. Dont get me started.
In college I was nicknamed the "condiment queen". Love 'em sometimes more that the stuff I am putting them on.
I nicknamed myself that then! But you win cause someone did it for you.
Because I just drank all the pickle juice—one of my faves, though I suppose not technically a condiment— from the jar before the pickles were gone, I thought I'd better replace it with something; didn't have the vinegar to fake brine, so I poured the rest of the bottle of gin into the jar. Wonder how that'll go?
Hmm....I have been known to eat good mustard out of the jar while making a sandwich.
Hummus is not so much a dip/spread for me but an entire food group, so this as well.
Also, red pepper jelly, apple butter and pumpkin butter.
OH and Gomasio (sesame seeds with sea salt)
