I once had a Goober Burger, goober being a name for a peanut, at a diner and peanut butter in that case was indeed a condiment. It was spread on the bun like mayonnaise. Surprisingly good to I must add.

I'd have to agree with Sagegreen on this one- the definition of 'condiment' in the Food Lover's Companion is as follows:

"A savory, piquant, spicy or salty accompaniment to food, such as a relish, sauce, mixture of spices and so on. Ketchup and mustard are two of the most popular condiments."

Plus, I'd love to see your recipe(s) for peanut butter!

This is hardly an official answer, just my opinion! But I think it could be used as such. I pondered whether my mustard butter was a condiment as well...deciding it was, especially when adding other ingredients to it.
