fluffydragon: (mad scientist)
So, it's been talked about before, but since our house is becoming steadily gluten-free, and more cooking is done at home, some interesting ideas have come up.

Shellie recently mentioned she is disgusted with everything you can buy pre-made. I feel more or less similarily, but don't mind buying a few things that I don't feel like making at home.

Until now.

So, sometime, either this week, or another week, and/or a week when my tomatoe plants have begun producing stupid amounts of tomatoes - we are going to have a condiment making party.

it'll be a non-girls night, so anyone who is interested is welcome. We're going to make large batches of ketchup, mustard, salad dressings, salsa, pickles, relishes, mayonnaise, caramel sauce, chocolate sauce, bbq sauce, Worcestershire sauce, and anything else we can come up with, on a couple nights of the week, cause doing all of them in one night might get ridiculous. Pickled eggs might be fun too.

I'll likely buy the first round of mason jars, and bring my canner. I figure we can make batches of 10 of anything and hopefully send each person home with 2 jars each. The first night will likely be a mayonnaise or other salad dressing and a bbq sauce, since neither require fresh tomatoes, and I really want to wait for real, garden tomatoes on salsa and ketchup.
