    That's. Odd. Fruit gets salt. I will continue heavily flavoring my fruits.

    Granted non-condimentified food is also like. My depression food. If I am eating fruits without salt chances are I'm extremely depressed or very busy. Simple foods aren't happy foods. Happy foods is I have time to sit down and carefully apply condiments to my food to get it tasting and feeling exactly how I want.

    Furikake is delightful and I could eat sticky rice w/ furikake for pretty much every meal and still be happy. Love me some bonito and sesame seeds and such. Actually went to buy some today but both the big store w/ the international section and the small asian grocery were sold out. :(

    ...having googled the 'proper' definition, I will clarify and start another food fight say that ime "condiments" has implications of a certain consistency. Dry spices aren't condiments; ketchup, mayo etc are
    on further thought, also depends on when the substance is added; bbq sauce on a burger is, but bbq that was cooked into meat is not

    mmmm.... hard disagree there. seasonings can be a condiment but aren't inherently. to me a condiment is something added at the end, uncooked and usually to taste by the person eating it not necessarily the person making the food. like if you add something once the food has been considered "made" (even if its an uncooked dish) i'd call that a condiment

    Ok but things like salt are included in the definition of condiment. It is a spice, sauce, or prepared thing that is added to a dish to compliment AFTER the dish has been prepared to compliment the flavor. Dry spices are condiments. They can also be parts of seasonings and marinades but they can be condiments. Two of said dry spices are among the most commonly used condiments in the US: salt and pepper.

    Granted my experience with condiments includes shit like Thai styled condiment caddies constantly. Among other things. I've got a lot of experience with a lot of kinds of condiments so the idea of it just being slime sauce is just. No. The definition can't just be that when you've got to find a word that describes the function of ketchup, nam plah prik, and dehydrated fish flakes being added to completed dishes.

    Charlie I got no strings to hold me down

    I dislike the traditional condiments. Not big on sauces on things. Dislike ketchup, mustard, salad dressings being injected into my sandwiches, most sauces you will add on to a thing. If I say I dislike condiments, people can usually understand it as That Category of Wet Sauce Thing.

    Spices are a separate thing for me, but hm. If I consider condiments the Broad Broad category it's hard to say. They are occasionally integral to certain dishes. In general, I really dislike adding things after something is made - if there is seasoning, it tends to be added before completion.

    (I only like condiments I can consider mild or offsets a sharper taste, say, sour cream. Sometimes mayo. Soy sauce. I know I have very plain tastes, but I'm pretty sensitive to overwhelming tastes.)
