How to Properly Use Condiments - Back to bASSics by Chef Sylk

It has recently come to my attention that some of my fellow fotpers LACK the basic knowledge of how to make use of different condiments to their best advantage. So I have made this table to help and guide them to a proper way of eating condiments. 

 

 

  Condiments   How much to use                How to use

                     Ketchup  

A little over a teaspoon or a little more! if you're eating a burger or if you're eating fries, always make sure you dip just the tip of the fry and not the whole thing, and you should never dip the burger in the ketchup as all you're gonna taste is the strong vinegary taste of ketchup.

                                           Hot Sauce 

Little droplets It's a common misconception that the more sauce there is the more it tastes better, this is FALSE. It does not make it taste spicier or better, if you use too much it WILL overpower the flavor of whatever you're eating it with. The best way to eat hot sauce is to use little droplets of it here and there, that way with each bite those droplets burst into a mosaic of deliciousness and elevate the taste!
Mayo  A table spoon is recommended Mayo on it's on does not have alot of flavor so it heavy relies on whatever you're eating it with, it's generally recommended that you eat it with something spicy or heavy so the creaminess of the mayo can counter that taste. But again general rule of thumb, never use too much. 
Mustard Less than a teaspoon, droplets recommended. Mustard is a very strong condiment so too much of it can be disastrous, use with caution. I personally don't use it much but if you like it then use in moderation pls cause it's very strong and can easily overpower any flavor. 
Other  ~  The stronger the taste, the less you use. 

 

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask below!

 Enjoy!:)

I accidentally put too much ketchup on my hamburger. What do I do?

Okay relax first thing you need to do is calm down, it's a very common mistake to do. You need to immediately quarantine the area you've put the ketchup on, if it's the top bun remove it immediately or else the ketchup will spread, you need to work fast here before the ketchup seeps into the bun and makes it soggy, if you have a spoon of some sort or if you're comfortable using your fingers, scoop the excess ketchup out or better yet if you have fries then you can dip them and eat it really fast! This is in anyway salvageable so don't worry too much! Hope this helps, good luck!

but where do I use these condiments? 

A condiment is a spice, sauce, or preparation that is added to food to impart a particular flavor, to enhance its flavor!

Yes, I like it as well. I love the sweet yet salty vinegary taste it has.
