condiments, relishes and pickles

Out of curiousity, open the door to your fridge and tell me how many jars of these odds and ends do you have? Hot sauces, catsup, pickles, relishes. I was cleaning the fridge and counted easily 20 bottles and jars, and that doesn't count the stuff that doeesn't require refridgeration (add another half dozen at least). And I'm pretty religious about looking at a bottle or jar and saying, gee, this has been here way too long and trashing it. I like to try to cook many cuisines, and who can do without chutney and hot lime pickle when cooking Indian? Oyster sauce, peanut sauce ........ oh, dear. I think I'm the condiment queen. Do I need psychiatric help??

Oh goodness....

Too many to count.

I have ketchup, two or three kinds of mustard, sweet pickels, dill pickels, at least 4 kinds of bbq sauce ( I should throw them away since I always make my own now) 2 soy sauces ( ones almost empty) terriaki sauce, jams and jellies, two kinds of salsa..... I'm sure I have more but, that's what I remember of the top of my head.

I have a big jar of Pickled Cherries that I made up that I am waiting till around the 20th of January to start eating.

The smell of the syrup flavoured with bay leaves, cinnamon and cloves that was to go over the cherries was delicious.
