The New Condiment Basics

gastronomics | Oct 30, 201310:52 AM

SO. I started a board on condiments yesterday, but while the suggestions all sounded great, if I were to follow the advice of everyone there, my fridge would become entirely comprised of condiments (instead of just mostly).

What I'm wondering is what essential condiments you think the general populace - people that aren't foodies - is missing out on. Everyone has ketchup. Everyone has mustard. Everyone has mayonnaise, and BBQ sauce, and salsa, sriracha, and Frank's Red Hot. But what ESSENTIALS, are they missing?

I'm looking for a maximum of three condiments you'd nominate to sit alongside ketchup and mustard.

I ask because I'm working on a blog right now. Things I'm considering based off the suggestions I saw on the last board - Harissa, Maggi Sauce, Ponzu, Chilli Oil. Agree? Disagree?

UPDATE NOTE 1: The list of things everyone has is not exhaustive. Several people mentioned soy sauce, but let's just pretend I included that and every other basic, basic condiment out there.

UPDATE NOTE 2: When I say "everyone" I'm speaking in hyperbole. What I'm getting at is the average, non-foodie American.
