I’ve been making several of our condiments for years now (mayonnaise, salad dressing, BBQ sauce, etc.) but there are still some that have been easier to just grab at the grocery store when we’re in town. Still, I think it would be cool to be able to make all of our condiments from scratch- especially if we can make them entirely (or almost entirely) from ingredients we’ve grown/harvested at home, or from our food storage ingredients.
Not only are homemade condiments healthier for you since you can avoid any dangerous artificial ingredients, they’re also often cheaper to make yourself. Not to mention it would be nice to provide your family with some basic comfort foods in a long term emergency when you might not be able to get to the grocery store for a while. Having the knowledge and key ingredients to make your own sauces and dressings from scratch is something I think we should all consider.
I’ve made it easy for you by compiling a list of the 13 most popular condiments you can make from scratch, with simple recipes using basic ingredients which can be grown or harvested yourself or are shelf stable long term.
