Why reach for a preservative-filled jar from the store when Homemade Condiments shows how easy it is to make your own using fresh, flavorful, natural ingredients? Chop, stir and simmer your farmer’s market tomatoes, onions and habaneros down to a delicious, spicy ketchup perfect for topping your hot-out-of-the-oven sweet potato fries. Blend herbs from your garden with mustard seeds and vinegar for a spread that adds a tangy bite to your croque-monsieur.
