World's Best Mustard? Please stake your claim.

I am officially addicted, ADDICTED to mustard of all types. It changes with time in which I am enthralled with, but lately I have been putting Grey Poupon and Tabasco-infused mustard on literally everything I eat.

I also know there is always a time and place for horseradish mustard, honey mustard, grainy mustard, and the other great options. The best thing is really how good mustard is for you- Ive even tried making my own from scratch.

So lets hear it- what is your favorite mustard in all the land?

  1. LindaWhit Aug 29, 2007 06:05 AM

    Too many to mention - I usually have anywhere from 10-20 mustards in my fridge/pantry. I know there have been several threads on CH which I can't find right now, but you might want to check out this link.

      Wow, and I thought I was bad. :)

      Since I like it and it's so cheap, I frequently pick up something different just for the hell of it (eat some then toss the rest 2 years later!), but in terms of basics, I like smooth Dijon type for general purpose use - eating and cooking, coarse grain for some cooking uses, not so much for eating, American brown/gold for stuff like hotdogs and sausage, and "Chinese" hot mustard for serious kick when warranted. When available I generally for "extra hot" even among the European-type mustards..

      I don't much like "mustard plus" except for special purposes. It'd take me a years to finish jars of honey mustard or Bavarian sweet mustard for example because I use them for very specific purposes and I neither make a lot of ham sandwiches at home nor go through tons of those little German veal breakfast sausages..

      Flavored mustards are OK, but I never seem to finish them fast enough to bother buying them to eat at home so if I need something like that, I make up what I need myself or do without...

        LOL Yeah, it's an addiction. :-) My "standards" are usually Maille dijon; Gulden's brown, Inglehoffer's whole grain, and usually at least one flavored that are in my fridge in use at any one time (however, currently there's a grape must mustard, roasted garlic mustard, and one other I can't recall).

        However, the pantry is another thing. I've got pineapple mustard, I've got mango mustard, I've got several different maple mustards, I've got some from Stonewall Kitchen (love those little sampler jars!). I was just up in Quechee, VT last Friday, and picked up three more mustards - Spicy Hot and Sweet Hot mustards from Northeast Kingdom Mustards (http://northeastkingdommustard.com/ ) and Balsamic Vinegar and Fresh Garlic Mustard from Fox Hollow Mustard (http://www.sugarbushfarm.com/Products... ). Didn't need 'em. But figured I'd use them soon enough :-) and I expect to tonight.

        And I use the flavored mustards as part of a marinade for chicken/beef/pork. I plan to use the maple mustards for some pork chops tonight.

          Me too, but surprisingly it did not do well in a recent taste taste (think it was Cook's Illustrated, but could be wrong).

          Mustardfreaks, of which I am an avowed one, should not miss Philippe's The Original in Los Angeles. Supposedly the originator of the French Dip sandwich,
          their mustard is a wicked hot brew, with a flavor similar to Colmans. I always buy at least a couple of jars to take home.

          And any mustard at Trader Joe's is worth a try.

            I love Maille brand Dijon mustard. The Dijon with white wine at Trader Joe's (13 oz. glass jar) is quite similar -- and even better!

                Old old post, I know, but Maille makes a Dijonnaise, too -- a little richer than Hellmann's, but about three times the price... so Hellmann's it is for me. ;)

                I'm with LindaWhit -- too monay to mention. The two already cited -- Colmans dry and Maille are both favorites. So, too, is the Pommery in the classic crock, and Plochman's from Chicago.

                        Once again I will share my source with a YankeeFan, just kidding buddy. Here is the best site for some of the nicest mustards and hot sauces, relishes I have ever found. If you like extremely hot, " Scotch Bonnet Stew" is for you, mind you that they are not for the weak at heart. Very reasonable prices from a locally homemade brand. Most jars are $5 and a few $10, the more expensive ones you won't use that often, trust me !!!
                        The company is out of Worcester, MA, there are all of the products listed on the homepage from this product.

                          Ive actually thought about joining one of those mustard of the month clubs where you get 4 different ones each month. bit pricey but it should take some of my indecisiveness out of choosing my newest trials.

                          I am eager to try that scotch bonnet one you mentioned. I always end up making my own hot mustard by adding all kinds of hot sauces and creating bizarre concoctions.

                          I will reference you, the other site I have been looking at is www.mustardmuseum.com

                              Löwensenf is one of my three favorites, and I think the best German one I've tried. If you have Trader Joe's in your area their own brand of Dijon beats GP and the rest for both price and flavor, since they stock and sell it within two weeks of its manufacture. And of course good old Colman's, made JUST with water (and maybe a pinch of salt), for that sinus-clearing jolt a good ham sandwich requires. Mrs. O likes the coarse-grained Pommery, for which her dad used to be the West Coast importer, but it's never done much for me. Nor do I like the sweet ones.

                                Lowensenf is my favorite German mustard. Philippe's (although as noted elsewhere seems more horseradish than true mustard) is my go to for scrambled eggs. Coleman's, of course, but I was crushed when they changed the top from the pry-off to the plastic. There's a place on Ventura Blvd. in Woodland Hills, CA called Le Bon Bread that has the most amazing Dijon; you can buy it by the pint or quart. IMO much better than Grey Poupon or Maille.

                                  I discovered ground brown and yellow mustard powder very cheap at a Greek market, and I am wondering if anyone has ever tried to make mustard? I'm considering of making a Dijon-style product.

                                    Bertman's makes Ball Park Mustard, which is the original mustard served at the Indians stadium and it is still being served there. It is a local, family owned business in Cleveland. Stadium Mustard, is owned by Davis Food Company, and is *not* available at the Indians games. Perhaps you can clear up which one it is you are referring to as one you like.

                                      My favorite is a French brand of Dijon mustard with green peppercorns. Last fall when I was in London I meant to stock up with atleast 6 jars and all I could get was 3 ;-( . I'm going to have to figure out my own recipe for it. London is not going to be in the picture until the dollar and pound have more parity.

                                            Maille has stores is Paris and Dijon with mustards and vinegars. I think they had 3 mustards on tap 2 years ago at the Dijon store. The mustard seed that Maille uses is grown in Canada. I've switched to Edmond Fallot from Beaune, France which I like a little bit better.

                                                  though, there's a time and place for French's too

                                                      Kozlik's is seriously good. Make the trip to Canada or make friends with a Canadian and have them send you some.

                                                      Couple of years later, but I agree- Kolzik's is wonderful! I have to say, I have a jar of Pommery mustard with cognac, and I'm not terribly fond of the flavor.

                                                        I am in Southern California and just purchased some Kozliks Canadian Mustard, Triple Crunch. It is really REALLY good, unlike any other mustard. The seeds are very crunchy and pop with flavor!

                                                        To artiee who posted here back in 2007 and is trying to find this mustard in the States, it is now easily available on Amazon...in 12 different Kozliks varieties:

                                                            Zatarain's Creole Mustard - it's a little different style than you might be used to, but I love it on sandwiches, or on pork or chicken.
                                                            In some circumstances I like Kosciusko Beer Mustard - it sounds kind of gimmicky, but it's actually really good. I use this more like an american-style mustard, on burgers and brats and stuff, also sometimes for cooking.
                                                            And Gery Poupon may be overhyped but it's a good dijon.

                                                              Do you really notice much of a difference between Zatarain's and French wholegrain mustards? I bought some once for a recipe, but after I tasted it, I didn't bother again - though maybe if they shold bigger bottles around here they might be a viable alternative. But those little ones are gone in a flash!

                                                                Zatarain's has a hard-to-identify extra taste that I haven't gotten from any other mustard - I don't know really how to describe it because I can't isolate the ingredient, sort of a "deep kick" if that makes any sense.

                                                              One I haven't seen mentioned in this thread is Batampe deli mustard. It is wonderful. I grew up with Gulden's and always have Gulden's in my fridge for sandwiches and hot dogs, but that's only because Batampe is hard to find around here. It's thicker than Gulden's and much spicier, perhaps due to horseradish? The seeds are also coarser. It comes in a big jar, about the size of a peanut butter jar, and I have usually seen it for sale near supermarket delis (on the rare occasions I see it at all) rather than in the mustard aisle.

                                                              Call me a heathen, but I also love Ken's Steak House Honey Mustard Dressing. I've sampled several different storebought honey mustard salad dressings, and most of them are gross, even though I love honey mustard dressing on salads I order at restaurants. I'm convinced the same restaurants must use Ken's. It's sweeter than it is mustardy, but it's awesome on salads every now and then.

It's Hengstenberg Medium Hot Mustard (not really terribly hot at all), also available as a sweet mustard. It's about $5 for 250 grams and comes in a small ceramic crock. A true treat on anything you like with mustard.

                                                                      1. carswell Oct 28, 2007 11:53 AM

                                                                        Sinus-clearing French Grey Poupon (not the wimpy stuff made in the US, which tastes like it's half ballpark mustard) for straight-up Dijon, though I'm almost as happy with Maille. We used to be able to get Edmond Fallot's Dijon mustards and they were the best and least expensive of all.

                                                                        A friend once brought back a small jar of Dijon mustard mixed with black olive paste that was incredibly good. Don't recall the brand but haven't run across anything similar since and adding olive paste to Grey Poupon or Maille isn't the same.

                                                                        1. linguafood Oct 28, 2007 12:08 PM

One of my faves there is the moutarde noixette -- or (wal-)nut mustard, if you will. The latter expression apparently has a second meaning in English that I wasn't aware of. Anywho. It is absolutely wonderful in a vinaigrette with walnut oil and sherry vinegar. Too bad they don't deliver outside of France.

It's a FANTASTIC mustard with just the right amount of kick to it.

These two brands regularly top anything else I've ever tried and I love all the mustards on the planet! In fact my friends can't understand my passion for the stuff and just why I always seem to have so many bottles of different mustard in my refrigerator.

                                                                                  Now I manage very happily with Colmans' English (powder and made-up), Maille Dijon and a wholegrain (currently Maille's Moutarde a 'Ancienne) - both the latter brought back form our last trip to France. Oh, and a tube of that very yellow, fairly bland one, Americans put on hot dogs and so on (coz it was specified in a recipe I did once). And a jar of what, in Britain, is always called French mustard - a dark brown one, that I've never seen in France but I believe originates in style from Bordeaux - as Mrs H prefers that with her steak.

I also like the safeway brand of southwestern mustard- it has a specific name I can't quite recall but it is very impressive relative to a many $12+ jars

Recently I went into TJ's buy another jar and, lo and behold, they discontinued that mustard. I was (and still am) so upset. I will have to see if there is a HF store near me. Seems kinda silly to order mustard on-line for $4.49 (or maybe not!).

                                                                                                                      Then I discovered a bright tasting yellow mustard, "Billy Bee", now a part of McCormick's.
                                                                                                                      Really nice on dogs and ham. Good in Carolina mustard sauce.
                                                                                                                      Wish I could get Gulden's, but this will do.

I tend to like mustards that pack some degree of heat, but that doesn't mean that they necessarily have to have horseradish or peppers as an ingredient. I have tried many different brands over the years, but my favorites remain these.

                                                                                                                                  Maille Dijon

I am a mustard junkaholic, and my parents went to France back in the early 2000's. Knowing I was a total MJ, they bought me an 8-pack of different flavored mustards in a cute mini-wooden crate when as a gift.

                                                                                                                                      I nearly wept over the Citron Vert bottle's passing. They also had a killer Lime and Vin Blanc mustard in the batch. I wish 1) I could taste every mustard flavor they have (parents said they had at least 20 flavors) and also 2) I wish had a local supplier of Reine Dijon Citron Vert for life. It was by far and above supreme to the hundreds I've tasted.

                                                                                                                                      I think as great as the Vert, Lime, and Vin Blancs were they are most likely the greatest mustard Company on the planet. If I ever come back into free and easy spending days, I'm ordering a damn crate of it from France direct!!!

Only have tried 1/3 of the ones mentioned, despite hundreds of hundreds sampled already. *sniff* Wish there was a MUSTARD SPECIALTY store somewhere in central Florida. So many different ones, so many great ones.

                                                                                                                                        If any of you all have thick capital, it might be a killer investment to start a mustard / ketchup / hot sauce specialty chain and stick one or two in big cities in the closest states or provinces near where you live. If I had the money I sure would.

                                                                                                                                        I remember going to the hot sauce store in Los Angeles' Farmer's Market and the place was just booming and brimming with customers. You combine tons of mustards, ketchups, and hot sauces you'd be rocking the planet in under 10 years I'd bet. Feel free to include me in the company in some faction, LOL :-D

In fact they reported that after 6 weeks in the fridge most had lost a lot of their flavor. So I just buy the smallest jar I can to keep the rotation up.
