Now that I'm at home a lot more than I was a year ago I have more time to actually read articles on Facebook. This article from the "Good Housekeeping" Magazine blog caught my attention. Mayonnaise is now the largest selling condiment in the United States, have passed up long-time favorite, ketchup. Actually, salsa passed ketchup twenty years ago, but salsa is being considered as a dip and not a condiment, which led the way for mayo to take top place in the condiment hit parade.
My refrigerator -- mustard, coconut water and champagne. Always ready for a party.
This is not apparent from my refrigerator. There are two mustard containers -- I love mustard and put it in just about everything -- a jar of tomato chutney and salsa. There's no mayo or ketchup. I've got nothing against the most popular condiments. I like mayo in tuna fish salad and from time to time I can be found dipping my french fries in ketchup, but mustard is my go-to condiment. It's far down on the list of popular condiments that follow mayo and ketchup; soy sauce, barbecue sauce and hot sauce.
Am I the only one out of step on mayo and ketchup? Are there any other mustard fans in Buttercupland? It's Condiment Tuesday. Please share your condiment favorites.
Happily we have a day off from snow today and I'm going to meet a work friend for lunch. The sun is shining and I'm off to Westchester. As ever, thanks for visiting and take good care.
