Condiments-2-1050x1680There are some condiments that all cooks should have in their kitchen, that will give the food a very special taste. Here is a list of 6 condiments that really make a difference when you cook:

1. Kosher salt

2. Black pepper
Pepper makes a great pair with the salt. And if you invest in a quality salt, why not do the same thing with the pepper? Most recipes require freshly ground black pepper so all you to have  to do is buy it and grind  it whenever you need, for a maximum flavor.

3. Cinnamon
It is versatile and fits great with breakfast, over a salad, yogurt, desserts and even in the morning coffee. Plus that is rich in antioxidants, and studies argue that helps regulate blood sugar levels.

4. Thyme
With a strong flavor, thyme going great on steaks, soups or sauteed vegetables and generally, in dishes cooked over low heat. Use it as in marinades for fish and in salad dressings.

5. Curry powder
It is a blend of several spices, and the principal is turmeric. Not only it will give an interesting flavor to the food but also this spice has powerful anti-cancer properties. Use curry powder with chicken every time you want to try something else.

6. Chilli flakes
If you like spicy food, make sure you do not miss this condiment from your kitchen. It can be sprinkled over pasta, pizza, vegetables or soups. You get a spicy taste instant, without having to clean and cut peppers.
