Are there any shop stocked condiments available that are primal friendly?
I believe yellow mustard is ok, i miss mayo, made my own with mild olive oil and it was nasty, really needs a flavourless oil.
Alternatively please feel free to use this thread for recipes for primal condiments.
Yellow mustard is alright. Hot sauce in general's probably fine, esp. Tobasco.
Most salsa is good, too. Read the label.
Yeah I think in general hot sauce is ok, lot of salt.

Red wine vinegar
White wine vinegar
If you want anything of a thicker consistency though, you're probably gonna have to suck it up and make your own.

From London England UK
Off the top of my head as I ride the subway:
Fats: Butter, coconut oil, ghee, olives & olive oil, avocado (& the oil), bacon grease, lard, suet, nuts (cold pressed virgin oils, sliced nuts, chopped nuts, etc.), seeds (sunflower, pumpkin, chia, hemp... Flax & flax meal are less favorable), possibly fish oil?
Spices: sea salt (so many different varieties), peppercorns, garlic, rosemary thyme, basil, parsley, garam masala, cayenne, paprika, chili flakes, dill, fennel, fenugreek, cumin, coriander, turmeric, powdered garlic/ginger/onion, most spice mixes (read the ingredients, avoid msg, sugar, etc.) - make your own dry rubs or add something wet to make it a sauce or marinade
Acids: vinegars (white, red wine, balsamic, apple cider, infused), Lemon & lime juice (fresh is best),
Flavor kicks: citrus zests, capers, pickled veggies (peppers, peppercorns, tomatoes, sours, cornichons, and more), hot sauce (check the label for sugar, veggie oils, sulfites, gums, etc. many brands are full of them), minced garlic, minced onions, minced hot peppers...
Sauces (always check labels if you're not making yourself): mustard (yellow, brown, Dijon, stone ground), tomato paste, marinara sauce (no sugar/canola/creepy preservatives), salsa, non-sweet pickle relish, olive tapenade, roasted red pepper spread, baba ganoush, horse radish, chutneys, sugar free ketchup, hot sauces, purées
Yummy things to make yourself: mayo (ask around and experiment, don't write it off just because you didn't like your first attempt), ketchup, sriracha, honey mustard (don't buy pre-made, it is guaranteed to be filled with crap), bearnaise sauce, infused butter, salad dressings, hot sauce, guacamole, salsa cheese dip, clam dip, onion dip...
Wow, thanks for a comprehensive list.

salsa is easy to make in home and you can flavor it how you like. make a batch or two a week for topping eggs and such. I love avacados so guac is a favorite for me.
you can also spice your mayo in/on whatever your making and thus don't need to make the whole batch one flavore.
