Accent the Flavour: Flavoured Mustard

Do you remember when the only kind of mustard was the plain yellow variety? For years, I thought that it was the only type of mustard that existed. Now, there are four or five types of mustard in my refrigerator at any given time. It's interesting to know more about this condiment that has become a part of my every day meals.

Mustard is a condiment made from the seeds of a mustard plant. The whole, ground, cracked, or bruised mustard seeds are mixed with water, salt, lemon juice, or other liquids, and sometimes other flavorings and spices, to create a paste or sauce ranging in color from bright yellow to dark brown. 

English mustard is among the strongest, made from only mustard flour, water, salt and, sometimes, lemon juice; but not with vinegar. French-style

 Dijon mustard,or moutarde de Dijon, has added vinegar, and is milder.

Commonly paired with meats and cheeses, mustard is a popular addition to sandwiches, hamburgers and hot dogs. It is also used as an ingredient in many dressings, glazes, sauces, soups, and marinades; as a cream or a seed, mustard is used in the cuisine of India, the Mediterranean, northern Europe, the Balkan States, Asia,North America, and Africa, making it one of the most popular and widely used spices and condiments in the world.

Jalapeno Mustard It's delicious on hamburgers and hot dogs, and makes a great "zingy" sauce for chicken strips when mixed with pure honey.

Coarse Ground Mustard This condiment gives baked beans a really unique flavor. It's also a terrific addition to homemade potato salad. Around the holidays, I always keep this kind of mustard on hand, as it's the best condiment for sandwiches made from leftover roasted turkey and baked ham.

Spicy Brown Mustard Spicy brown mustard adds a great flavor to ham sandwiches, as well as other types of deli meat sandwiches. This type of mustard also makes a great sauce for chicken strips when blended with honey. It's also a great topping for hamburgers.

Honey Mustard Honey mustard is a great, versatile condiment. It's a delicious addition to many recipes, particularly baked beans. If you want to give your favorite store bought barbecue sauce a really unique flavor, try blending some honey mustard into the sauce before using it to baste your favorite meat on the grill. You'll be in for a real taste treat. This condiment was made famous in Lebanon by Roadster Diner a couple of years ago.

Champagne Mustard It has a really smooth and delicious taste. If you have a chance to try this delicious mustard, try it on a grilled cheese sandwich.
