10 Things food

20 condiments that make every food taste better

Web Watch knows a girl who only eats chicken fingers, cheese, french fries, and ketchup.

Yeah, we know – it’s a little weird.  But she’s happy with it.

Asked her once what she would do if the world ever ran out of ketchup… and she wasn’t happy.  For her, ketchup makes the world go ’round.

Similarly, we have many friends who wouldn’t dream of eating watermelon without a little salt on it.  It’s their thing.

Web Watch is more of a garlic lover.   We have no problem putting garlic (and garlic variations) on most foods we eat… in moderation, of course, as we wouldn’t put garlic on something where it wouldn’t make sense.

So with all this in mind, the Huffington Post decided to ask their readers what INGREDIENT CAN YOU NOT LIVE WITHOUT, meaning that it’s that stuff that you just have to have in your pantry so you can sprinkle it liberally over your dinner.

Here’s what they came up with so far:

  • Ranch dressing
  • Sesame Salt
  • Matcha
  • Kimchi
  • Cinnamon
  • Pimenton
  • Vinegar
  • Lime
  • Avocado
  • Eggs
  • Lemon
  • Tartar Sauce
  • Cayenne Pepper
  • Sriracha
  • Black Pepper
  • Ketchup
  • Hot Sauce
  • Sunshine Sauce

What about you?  What ingredient do you absolutely, positively can’t do without?
