We love Homemade Ingredients here at Tasty Kitchen. Love. Not only because you have full control over what goes into your food but also because the flavors you get blow store-bought versions out the water. Plus there’s the street cred. Oh, the street cred.
We’ve had a few favorites here at the TK Blog. Like the homemade tortillas you see above. Or refried beans to go with those tortillas. Or impress everyone with homemade ricotta. Be prepared for the double takes and Elaine Benes-esqe “Shut up!” shoves when you tell them you make your own anything.
Homemade creations also gives us reason to buy more Mason jars. Because you really can never have too many Mason jars.
We’re always on the lookout for more ways to make stuff at home, so this is where you come in! Tell us:
What ingredients do you like to make at home?
I like making the basic condiments at home. I have a shelf of homemade mayo, mustard, ketchup, barbecue sauce, and hot sauce in my fridge. When friends see that, they first blink in disbelief and then they swoon. I think they do it to humor me, but I’ll take what I can get. I’ve also been making my own Greek yogurt for years now and wish I did it more often.
How about you? Do you make some on a fairly regular basis? Or less than you wish you could? Or maybe you’re looking for a homemade version of a favorite item. Whatever it is, let us know!
