CONDIMENTS: Facts and Trivia

Book Condiments: In January, 2011 a woman in Boise, Idaho was sentenced to 27 days in jail after she plead guilty to dumping condiments into a library book-drop more than a dozen times over the course of a year. The condiments included maple syrup, syrup, ketchup and mayonnaise.  She was upset because she had been banned from the library.


Condiments are food substances that are added to foods to improve or heighten their natural flavor.  The term 'seasoning' is usually used for items added during cooking, and 'condiment' usually refers to those flavorings added at the table. However the terms are frequently used interchangeably.


Most condiments are of vegetable origin, some are also based on pounded and dried fish or shellfish.


Some general classes of condiments are Mayonnaise and its variation, ketchup and its variations, prepared mustards, seasoning sauces, salad dressings, vegetables (onion, chives etc.) and salt.


The three most popular condiments in German restaurants are mustard, horseradish, and applesauce.
