Description

Once you've tasted fresh, delicious homemade condiments, where you're in control of the flavours, you'll never go back to store bought. Too often, commercial versions are loaded with extra salt, sugar, allergens and preservatives, and can taste bland and uninspiring. So, why not make your own?

From ketchup, sweet chili sauce and taco seasoning, to peppery American hot sauce, sizzling Tunisian harissa, tangy Dijon mustard, as well as infused vinegars, aromatic spice blends, pickles and preserves, Condiments is a collection of recipes with step-by-step instructions so you can bottle exciting flavours in a jar by boiling, blending, mixing, fermenting and ageing as well as offering complimentary dishes to match.

This book is a love song to condiments and the joy of making them. Start whipping up your own delicious accompaniments such as homemade oyster sauce, to intensify the flavours of that weeknight stir-fry and fermented hot sauce, which will make your tacos all-the-more mouth-watering.

Condiments is an absolute must-have for anyone looking to enhance the flavours of their home cooking with healthier, tastier alternatives. It won’t disappoint.
