Condiments are probably one of the hardest kinds of food to buy without additives and preservatives. Unless you have access to a natural food store or your local store has a good natural foods section, you’re not likely to have much success in your search.
Thankfully, it’s super easy to make your own condiments at home! Everything from sauces and dips, to spread, jams, jellies, and seasoning mixes.
By making your own, you can control exactly what goes into each recipe. Make your recipes with only the freshest ingredients. Infuse your recipes with fresh herbs if you feel so inclined.
A few other high quality ingredients to consider:
- Ceylon cinnamon – The cassia cinnamon commonly found in the grocery store is toxic. Find out why you should buy ceylon cinnamon instead.
- Pink Himalayan Salt – Table salt is not real salt. Find out more about why salt is good for you.
- Non-Pasteurized Almonds – In short, pasteurization and heat destroy important enzymes and vitamins.
- Chia Seeds – They are super good for you and they act as a natural thickening agent in many homemade condiment recipes.
