Miracle Whip. :blush:

The world belongs, however, to those who can look at the glass and say: What's up with this glass? Excuse me? Excuse me? This is my glass? I don't think so. My glass was full! And it was a bigger glass!" Terry Pratchett

Well, if Heinz Ketchup doesn't count, I'll say French's Mustard. I neeeeeed that for my Nathan's hot dogs. Although I am learning to use fancy German mustard now.

I don't think Heinz Ketchup counts, because I married a Picksburgher, and now I'm not allowed to use any other sort of ketchup. Since I don't use ketchup often, I'm OK with that.

But French's Mustard is at the top of my list of trashy condiments. I know good mustard. I own good mustard. I know how to make good homemade mustard. And yet, there is something about that bright yellow stuff that makes my mouth sing. I even put it on scrambled eggs.

Oh, the shame.

Hell yes for the French's love. A hot dog is not a hot dog without it, although it may have other applications.

Heinz Ketchup. No homemade, no "gourmet" for me.

Geez, I consider Heinz to be the "good" stuff and the "gourmet," organic dreck to be bad.

I actually prefer the flavor of the Heinz organic ketchup over their standard... It just tastes more tomatoey.

My weakness is celery seed salt. My blood pressure has a different opinion.

In-N-Out Burger spread packets. It's thousand island dressing.

The odd clear and pink Sweet-n-sour sauce at chinese take out houses mixed with the chinese hot mustard packets. The best on a greasy egg roll.

I like Aussie-style tomato sauce, but only in a sausage sizzle situation: overcooked snag laid diagonally on a bit of doughy white bread and topped with grilled onions. Otherwise it's Heinz ketchup all the way.

Have to be dodgy supermarket mystery bags, too. With a list of ingredients that says something like, 'Meat (45%) ...' And a white supermarket loaf. A $20/kilo organic Daylesford bull-boar sausage in a $6 sourdough just isn't right.

Oh, yes, absolutely! TipTop, or even better, generic bread. Somehow it complements the dodgy sausage and sauce perfectly. But I really can't stand it otherwise.

      I LOVE pickled ginger. In fact, in some instances, moreso than sushi or sashimi itself. When I was first introduced to sushi, it was my least favorite part of a sushi meal. Now it's the opposite.
      Besides sushi/sashimi, what other uses for pickled ginger are there? And how do you make your own? What goes in the pickling solution? Fresh pickled ginger (not premade) is undyed and a pale beige in color, whereas the premade version is a slight tawny pink.
      Any suggestions?

      What sorts of mustards do you like? The type of mustard I like is pungent without a hint of sweetness (fie upon honey mustards), but not too vinegary. Inglehoffer's Stone Ground tends to be rather good, but it's got a little too much vinegar (overpowers the taste of the mustard). What sorts of mustards do you like? Any brands? Or do you make your own?

      Sorta Secret Aardvark Sauce (Habenero Hot Sauce)
      I thought I'd submit my recipe which is a clone of a locally available sauce here in Portland OR called Secret Aardvark Sauce.
      Sorta Secret Aardvark Sauce
      1 – 14.5 oz can of diced tomatoes or roasted tomatoes chopped - include the juice
      1 – 14.5 oz of rice wine vinegar. Use the now empty tomato can to measure
      1-1/2 cups of peeled and grated carrots (packed into the measuring cup)
      1 cup of finely diced white onion
      1/4 cup of yellow mustard
      1/3 cup of sugar
      2 teaspoons of Morton’s Kosher Salt
      1 teaspoon of black pepper
      13 small Habaneros – seeded and membranes removed. (This was 2 oz. of Habaneros before cutting off the tops and removing the seeds and membranes)
      2 teaspoons curry powder
      1 cup of water when cooking
      5 or 6 cloves of garlic - roasted if you've got it
      Put it all in the crockpot on high until everything is tender. About 3 hours  Note: I used the crockpot so I don't have to worry about scorching it while it cooks. 
      Whirl in food processor – Don’t puree until smooth – make it lightly/finely chunky.
      Makes 3 pints - To can process pint jars in a water bath canner for 15 minutes
      I've thought about making this with peaches or mangoes too, but haven't tried it yet.

      Prawn Balchao is a very famous Goan pickle that has a sweet, spicy and tangy flavor to it. 
      For the balchao paste you will need:
      > 8-10 kashmiri red chillies
      > 4-5 Byadagi red chillies
      > 1/2 tsp cumin seeds
      > 1/2 tsk turmeric powder 
      > 1 tsp peppercorn
      > 6 garlic cloves
      > 1/2 tsp cloves
      > 1 inch cinnamon stick
      > Vinegar 
      First you will need to marinate about 250 grams of prawns in some turmeric powder and salt. After 15 minutes deep fry them in oil till them become golden n crisp. Set them aside and add tsp vinegar to them and let it sit for 1 hour. Now, make a paste of all the ingredients mentioned under the balchao paste and make sure not to add any water. In the same pan used for fryin the prawns, add in some chopped garlic and ginger. Lightly fry them and immediately add one whole chopped onion. Next, add the balchao paste amd let it cook for 2-3 minutes. Add in the prawns and cook until the gravy thickens. Finally add 1 tsp sugar and salt according to your taste. Allow it to cool. This can be stored in a glass jar. Let this mature for 1-3 weeks before its use. Make sure never to use water at any stage. This can be enjoyed with a simple lentil curry and rice.
