Condiments

Postby arran77 » Fri Feb 28, 2014 10:37 am

I like a bit of banter but sometimes things get a bit heavy!

So a simple, light hearted question, what's your condiment of choice if you fancy a dollop?

Salad cream just pips it of the two.

However, aioli wins in the all-time condiment stakes for me.

Being Friday I will be having a fry up for lunch so brown sauce is the only choice.
Out of the two in the poll, mayo. Rarely eat salad.

Neither do I but I'm trying to be good :roll:

Mayo is awesome for dunking chips in but salad cream is good in a fish finger buttie :shock:

Given a choice, neither. But sometimes, food comes preprepared with mayo and I just have to get on with it and try to swallow, chewing as little as possible.
I have never tried salad cream, it just looks gopping. Food of the Devil!

No. That is eggy bread. We've talked about this before.

Eggy Bread is the food of the Devil and olives are Satan's ar5e grapes. This is indisputable and anyone that says otherwise is in league with Lucifer.

I agree on the olive's, they serve no useful purpose, eggy bread on the other hand with a good fry up, yes please 8)

Now, now, K_B, don't be ride to the guests. Especially when they are right.

I quite often finish up the littl'uns leftovers, and they unfortunately seem to like the blasted stuff (SC). Trouble is, I often don't realise it's contaminated until I'm half way through a fishfinger.

Agree wholeheartedly about olives.
Why anyone would want them in a drink is mind boggling. Never mind eating them.

Guest is a very polite way of putting it although it implies that someone is invited to be somewhere and I very much doubt that's the case.

It does also have the following meaning as well which may well be more apt :wink:

A small invertebrate that lives unharmed within an ants' nest.


Maybe ants' nest is a metaphor for this place and crudders / BB'ers are the invertebrate :P

Anyway back on topic, the only correct gastronomic use for salad cream is with fish fingers in a buttie, white bread only :wink:

I always thought it was either custard or tomato ketchup with fish fingers? Not that I care, being a veggie and all.

Oh and if you want to try gopping: have a go at the Quorn fish fingers... There's a special level of hell reserved for the people that made that recipe up.

FFs it's just garlic mayo.

Mayo is my choice. Don't care how it comes. Garlicky, mustardly, whatever. As long as it is full fat.

Mayo with chips. Any of the flavours that you get in a Belgian chip van (plain included).

What's with all the dissing olives? Plebs...

Salad Cream and Mayonaise are essentially the same thing.

one os made from boiled eggs one isnt.

So when you are having that egg mayo sandwhich, you are basically having Egg Egg sandwhiches.

BTW its all about peps chilli jam, with EVERYTHING.

Olives rule

Quorn I do not understand :?

If you're not going to eat meat or fish why try making something that looks like a sausage or fish finger!

I am taking a stand.

Olives are amazing. Especially when fresh in a hot country with good fresh bread.

Fresh olives are awful! I naively tried one once straight from a tree in Tuscany and it was one of the most bitter things I've tasted.
