These condiments are so good and so easy, bottled versions will soon be a thing of the past. Best of all, they are all vegan or have vegan options.

We have gotten so caught up in the grab-buy-toss culture of packaged foods and ingredients that we have forgotten how easy it is to make a better quality, less expensive version of many kitchen staples at home. These condiments takes a little more time to make than simply opening a bottle, but what you lose in efficiency, you make up for in flavor, healthfulness, and sustainability. Grab your mason jars and stock your fridge with these delicious spreads and sauces. 

Homemade Mayonnaise

Fresh mayo has a ton of flavor and takes only minutes to make. Add fresh herbs, piquant spices, or minced garlic for delicious variations.

Homemade Vegan Mayonnaise

This creamy, vegan "mayonnaise" is wonderful on sandwiches and in bound salads. Add spices like yellow curry powder or lemon pepper for unique variations.

DIY Spicy-Sweet Ketchup

This super-easy, fiery ketchup will make you wonder why you ever thought the bottled stuff would do.
