Condiments and Liquids

A condiment is sauce, or seasoning added to food to impart a particular flavor or to complement the dish. Often pungent in flavor and therefore added in fairly small quantities, popular condiments include salt, pepper, ketchup, mustard, olive oil, vinegar and sugar. Usually applied by the diner, lunch or breakfast table, condiments generally have the consistency of a thick liquid or paste and are served from a bottle, jar, or bowl. They may also be dry, such as a mixture of herbs and seasonings.

Some condiments are used during cooking to add flavor or texture to the food; for example, barbecue sauce, teriyaki sauce, and soy sauce all have flavors that can enhance the tastes of a variety of different meats and vegetables.
There are some overlaps between condiments and seasonings.
