    what are some DIFFERENT condiments you use & what do you use them on?
    chipotle cranberry sauce, chipotle raspberry sauce, homemade chipotle mayo & jalapeno jelly (must not be made w/ vinegar) all used on meats & meat sandwiches. my favorite use of the chipotle mayo is on "hotdogs", w/cheese & kraut. (for our non american friends, a chipotle is a ripe red jalapeno pepper dried & cold smoked)
    i also love to mix fresh horse raddish into sour cream for potatoes (baked, roasted, boiled, smashed it doesnt matter), turnips, rutabaga & parsnips.
    i love to use fish sauce to add salt & flavor to meats but the DW hates it so i rarely get to use it. (i also use it to make sum tum)

    these are mine what are yours?

    Love salsas, especially mango salsa. Melinda's XXX is a favorite too. Basically I can eat just about anything if I have a bottle of habanero sauce :eek:

    When I worked at Panera Bread I put their chipotle mayo on everything. Chips, sandwiches, baguettes, breakfast sandwiches.

    That is what I miss most about working there LOL!

    We had a fig tree in the yard. Fresh fig was awesome on everything. Scoop it out on meats, in a peanut butter sandwich instead of jelly, mixed into yoghurt, etc. It was awesome. I will miss that tree.

    I cant really think of any. My husband puts salsa on almost everything. I really like balsamic mayo with sweet potato fries or on some sandwiches etc.


    Totally OT but I always twitch a bit when I see it called Panera lol....It is supposed to be St. Louis Bread Co. It drove me nuts that they changes their name for out of town locations when they expanded...yeah, I pick weird things to get bothered over. (Then they went and switched from Coke to Pepsi:yikes:) Still eat there all the freaking time though

    Awesome! I didn't even know you could grow them here! And I'm a gardener! LOL. You are so lucky. Figs are wonderful and sooooo good for you.

    Renee...you're brave. My BIL also likes habeneros...the hotter the better. He eats them straight, just like an apple. I couldn't take it. I like a little hot, but not extremely. And they're about as hot as you can get. I do love that mango or peach salsa. That stuff is tasty!

    I love sauerkraut Pops. It's very healthy too. These things that are fermented add an extra health benefit. I love that stuff on really good bratwurst. I use mustard, ketchup and salsa on some things. Pickle relish is good too. I don't know....I guess I don't eat that many things that you'd put condiments on these days, so don't use too much of that stuff. I like humus all right if it's flavored with something...like on crackers or celery sticks. But I don't go out of my way to get it....just if the spirit moves me when I'm in the store, I might grab some once in a while.

    Oh man, I'm heading back up there and going to beg the neighbor lady for cuttings. lol. This tree is about 40 feet tall and is covered with thousands of figs every year. The summer never lasts long enough for the breba crop, but that's okay. Last spring I rooted some out but accidentally let their jar dry up before getting them in the ground. If you want one they would probably do well up at your place too.

    The starlings go crazy for them and come by the thousands. It's like national geographic or something. lol. Here's a pic from my old bedroom window.

    Jalapeno jelly is good on most anything.

    Actually in my world everything is better with jalapenos, avocado, and cilantro.

    Also like chipotle mayo for sandwiches. Also like pepper jack cheese.

    Pretty much anything with peppers. I also love horseradish mixed on things. Or wasabi.
