I'm looking to expand my mustard options . . .
In my fridge, right now, is a bottle of French's yellow and a jar of Dijon, and that's about it. What other mustards out there are worth trying? I'm not interested in super sugary concoctions, since I prefer my mustard on the savory side.
Thanks for your suggestions!
Have you looked at the selection in your local grocery store or deli? Anything look especially interesting?
I have a tarragon mustard that I like (sorry, can't remember the name). I also like russian and German style mustards.
I don't know where you are, but Philippe's in Los Angeles has really great hot mustard (see link below).
Also, if you are a DIY mustard 'hound, I'd suggest getting a jar of regular French's and adding some wasabi to it ... beats the pants off of anything Grey Poupon can put out ...
Oh my god, Phillipe's is the best mustard EVER! I'm a huge mustard lover and usually I'll user a couple teaspoons of mustard for each bite of food, but Phillipe's is so potent and spicy that only a small dab is needed. When I visited LA to eat at Phillipe, I almost didn't notice the mustard in the jar at the end of the table until my mom pointed it out and said "what's this?" From there I was hooked and promptly bought two jars of the stuff. It's so hot (for a non-flavored mustard) that I couldn't believe that horseradish wasn't listed among the ingredients. Gulden's pails in comparison.
I love -- could eat it by the spoonful! -- Maille Dijon Originale. I don't care as much for the other "flavors" of Maille, but the Original is nothing special...just a really good taste. It also mixes well in salad dressings; it doesn't overpower the other ingredients.
the mustard vendor Juniper is referring to is named Kolzick's and they have a website where you can order them online.
I actually would highly suggest them as their potency is so great that only a small dab is necessary. the flavour is fantastic and considering that 90% of the mustard seeds come out of Canada (they even go off to France, this is off of the website and soemwhere else), we have superb mustard making conditions ;)
the garlic mustard is among my faves... a good savoury flavour accentuated with a kick to clear your sinuses if you're not careful.
I adore mustard... I have about four different types in the fridge now...
Aside from Frenches Yellow (A MUST for ham sammiches), I also adore Maille's original and even better for cooking and texture, whole grain... I love when a grain pops in my mouth!
For spicy, I love Beaver Sweet and Spicy mustard. It tastes so good and then it BURNS ya bad...
For sweet, I adore the Champagne Honey Mustard I get from my local Ralphs/Kroger
I've also tried and liked TJ's Cranberry Mustard (Awesome with turkey sammiches) and of course Grey Poupon for making Salad Dressings. There is no better elmusifier! :)
