Unofficial Colman's Mustard Website  

Review by Debbie Mazo


Although recipes for mustard paste appeared as early as 42 AD, the use of mustard as a condiment didn't gain popularity until the smooth version of Dijon mustard assumed its noble place in French history. Today, mustard has diverse appeal and can enhance the flavor of all kinds of dishes. For mustard fans everywhere, the Unofficial Colman's Mustard Website brings you everything need to know about this savory spread.

Colman's Mustard  
No longer considered a lowly sandwich spread, mustard has all kinds of uses in and out of the kitchen. Click Quick Tips and find out how you can incorporate mustard into your daily cooking or even general household maintenance. For example, rub a little mustard on fish fillets before cooking to make the fish taste fresh and moist. Or, spoon one tablespoon of mustard into your breading mixture for chops or cutlets to add some flair. Outside of the kitchen, dry mustard comes in handy for preventing cold feet and frostbite on chilly winter days.

For more burning questions on mustard, check out the site's FAQ. Here, you'll discover interesting facts about mustard like a spoonful of mustard contains only a few calories and over 3,800,000 kilograms (around 3800 tons) of mustard are sold every year. If you've ever had a dreaded mustard stain, pointers like using a paste of baking soda and water to lift the stain out are sure to lend a hand.

Mustard is a versatile ingredient in basic vinaigrette or other salad mixtures, adding color and flavor. Click on Recipes to try the assortment of recipes featuring, of course, Colman's Mustard. To accompany your greens, try the Easy Honey Mustard recipe-great with romaine lettuce. Fans of French dressings will find three variations on the theme, including Piquant French Dressing spiced up with chili sauce and Worcestershire sauce. Use mustard to spruce up main dishes as well like Grilled Swordfish with Herbs or Light Chicken Stroganoff sprinkled with parsley. If you've got a favorite mustard recipe, the site encourages sharing by offering an online submission form that's a breeze to use.

Whether you like your mustard spread on two slices of bread or all dressed up with the house salad, the Unofficial Colman's Mustard Website serves this seasoned staple in a very tasty way.
