Mod. Edit two overlapping threads have been merged. A spin off from elsewhere on the forum - the question is, what can be classified as a condiment? And which condiments are traditionally used in your country? Well its a tricky one - according to Wiki So it seems that anything used to add flavour can be called a condiment? Up until now I'd always used the word to signify items which go on the table and can be used to flavour food after it is served up - salt, pepper, mustard, ketchup etc. How do you use the term?
