Homemade condiments are always a special addition to a meal, but not everyone has the time or inclination to make their own ketchup or Nutella from scratch. That's why a thoughtfully-chosen homemade condiment makes a wonderful hostess gift, packaged in a pretty jar and tucked into the fridge for the hosts to enjoy days or even weeks after the party.
This list includes a little something for everyone, from the health-conscious friend who might enjoy a new spread on her morning toast (coconut butter) to the busy parents who would appreciate an all-in-one marinade/dipping sauce/dressing for quick weeknight meals (Korean seasoning sauce). Pack your gift in a nice jar or other airtight container and if it's a more unusual condiment, be sure to include instructions on how to serve it, or a recipe that uses it.
