The rest of the condiment market will have to play quite a game of ketchup.

I'm glad that's not my problem. I certainly wouldn't relish being in such a pickle.

You, too, could have your own mustard business with a little seed money.

I figured that the sage minds of Fark would show up to pepper this thread with puns.
It's as bad as mother's day, when you had me laughing so hard that I forgot to mail a Hallmark cardamom.

Well really investments are a lot like a grain of mustard seed, which one man took and sowed in his field; which indeed is smaller than all seeds. But when it is grown, it is greater than the herbs, and becomes a tree, so that the birds of the air come and lodge in its branches and you get a kick-ass return.

Mrs. Kritter used to make & jar incredible dark brown mustard. there's a great deal of things wives stop doing.

Have you had Colman's Mustard? It's very spicy. It's almost like chinese mustard.

// Freshly made Colman's Mustard (from mustard powder) will blow your dogs out of their buns.

I don't usually piquant Fark celebrities, but shouldn't that be "roux"?

Well I tried shoving a wiener in the warp drive, but it didn't a do a bit a good. By the vye, would you have a wee bit of mustard up on the bridge.

//too obscure?

Mustard snob thread?

www.ocado.com

If you're buying Colman's, buy supermarket own, it's just as good.

It's a hot commodity, if investors aren't spread too thin.

But then, Heinz sight is always 20/20.

OK, so you punning idiots aroused my curiosity, and I Googled.
Seems there's a bit of a mustard-seed crisis. A whole lot of it comes from India, and the mustard-growing region there experienced a bad dry spell this year, resulting in a poor crop - and mustard seed, as well as mustard-seed oil are trading at record prices, and experiencing scarcity.
Damn. Whole friggin' world is dysfunctonal.

I'm new to English mustard. I tried Colman's after the last mustard thread and enjoyed its strong flavor.

I haven't seen Tracklements sold in the US.

mustardmuseum.com I came across this in my search for mustard. Has anyone visited this place (in Wisconsin)?

Wrong on both counts ;-)

Yes. If you like mustard, and you like hokey, goofy, silly, roadside attractions, you should definitely go.

The "museum" part is mildly informative, and they have a great collection of old mustard containers, but the shop is the best part. They sell mustards from all over the world in flavor combinations that you'd never imagine.

Of course unless you're in the area anyway, it's easier to just order online (and they have Tracklement's).

HTH

I was kinda kidding, but they're a company that doesn't cut corners and makes really good condiments. You can buy cheaper, but I figure a few extra pennies on the mustard on my plate is worth it.

My grandmother used to have a saying that Mr Colman's profits came from the mustard that was left on plates.

Well there goes a bunch of my money :(

Tell me about it. My mother lives in WI, so every few years or so, I drive out to visit her, and I always come home with a trunk full of mustard.

If you're looking for something unusual but delicious, try Sprecher Root Beer Mustard. If you like the hot stuff, I recommend Hit & Run Brown Horseradish Mustard.

The great thing about the mustard museum is that it's inspired me to start making my own. It's actually really easy, and even kind of fun. (Also saves me tons of money and time trying to find gifts- everybody gets a pint of mustard. ;-)

Colman's is very strong and I can understand that it's probably more reflective of my jaded taste buds, but I love it. images.dailyexpress.co.uk

Plus, they've been giving it away at my local Stop & Shop market ($1.50 a jar.)
