I don't know if this counts because I've never seen it here (I had terrible withdrawal symptoms ), but I used to be addicted to Branston pickle. Mmmmmm
Large branches of COOP sell Branston in their international section.
I've got a jar of it in my cupboard and I hate the stuff.

Re: What condiment could you not live without?

When I'm eating home - I have my home made paprika paste jar (basically minced hot paprika and salt plus olive oil, stored in the refrigerator)
Other than that, Tabasco and Dijon mustard, depending on the food.
Oh, and garlic paste....although I really try to avoid it.

Do fish count as a condiment in their whole form? I suppose you could blend them into a Bloody Mary! Although Oysters are supposed to be quite good for that.
While I sometimes buy them fresh, generally I buy them either packed in salt or in oil, and not whole, or in the liquid form (various asian fish sauces).

Tartar sauce. There's no point in having fish if it's not slathered in tartar sauce.

Well, I would have said chiles, but to me they are a vegetable and not a condiment (at least in the quantities we use, same for garlic).

Re: What condiment could you not live without?

I second the Sarsons Malt Vinegar.

After that:

1) Lea & Perrins Worcestershire Sauce,
2) Branston Pickle,
3) Oxo cubes.

Lime pickle - essential for cheese sandwiches . Soy sauce & Sriracha too, but we've already had them.

Re: What condiment could you not live without?

Freshly squeezed lime juice. Lemon is ok, too.

And then I am known to put Chubritza into a lot of meals.

Honey.

Not fussy. I usually stock up on UK supermarket own-brand versions when I can get it. It's not particularly hot (although outrageously hot by Swiss standards), but it's good enough for our barbecues in the woods. Mexican or American when I see it.

Jalapeno relish is easy-peasy to make - and you can ramp up the heat well beyond 'Swiss levels' if you wish.

I use this as a basic recipe, but it's a bit too mild for me so I leave the seeds in for the heat. Or use serranos or habaneros for extra kick.
