Homemade Condiments: Artisan Recipes Using Fresh, Natural Ingredients

We rated this book:


So you love fresh, homemade food, right? Burgers, chicken, stir-fry… but, what about the sauce? If you go to the (eminently worthwhile) trouble of making a dish just the way you like it, wouldn’t it be worth the trouble to make your own condiments, too? Homemade Condiments helps you avoid unwanted additives while adjusting heat or spice to your own preferences in such basics as Classic Ketchup, Tomato- or Mustard-based Barbeque Sauce, Smooth Yellow or Honey Mustard, and even mayonnaise. For the more adventurous, the author offers various hot sauces and infused oils, such as Key-lime Jalepeno sauce or Roasted Garlic Olive Oil. Sections on quick pickles (including instructions for shelf-stable preserving, if desired), salad dressings, and specialty condiments are also included; sweet and dessert sauces (and a recipe to make your own peanut butter!) complete the book. The recipes are straightforward; many use only a few ingredients, most (if not all) of which you probably already have in your well-stocked kitchen. Some, like the ketchup, take more time to cook, but little time to prep. The author helpfully includes suggestions for use and storage, and the format is easy to read and attractive, with the ingredient list clearly indicated. With its fun and exciting recipes, Homemade Condiments kicks your already-great home cooking up to the next level.
