Y'all need to try Tewkesbury Mustard - hot English mustard mixed with horseradish. Nut up or shut up! :)

Dammit, you're right. And you need to bold what you think is important too.

@Sobachatina You girl. Roast beef is nothing with horseradish sauce.

Fresh Horseradish is used in things like fish mousse, not just as a condiment :)

Black pepper is interesting, as it is classed as a spice, but is also used as a condiment. Blame the Romans.

See the amount of sugar in the average fast food bun. Combined with vacuum packing, they're virtually indestructible.

comment Cooking minced/ground beef with a jar of sauce
It sounds as if that's a very thick sauce. If you make up 500ml of beef stock (paste cubes like Knorr are best if using cubes) and add that along with sauce, stir, then just get a bare simmer going (not a full on boil), it can tick along for a couple of hours and the mince will be much nicer.
