You probably have a classic image of mustard in your head, even if you’re well acquainted with the multitude of colorful and flavorful condiments, in varied textures, that can be produced from the humble little mustard seed. The classic bright yellow bottle is not to be dismissed, but there’s so much more available.
What’s Yellow or Brown, Tart or Sweet?
When we started thinking about it, we were kind of bowled over by the versatility of mustard. Of course, you’ll find it almost everywhere you encounter ketchup, like in barbecue sauces and on burgers, but mustard has the edge when it comes to pairing with fine cheeses, sausage sandwiches, and fresh-baked pretzels. Hungry yet?
