Prepared mustard is a common American condiment made from mustard seed, vinegar and spices. Use over meats, in salad dressings and sauces as well as numerous other dishes. Mustard is available in hundreds of variations from plain yellow mustard to Champagne, honey and other gourmet versions.
Whole grain mustard still has whole or cracked mustard seed in the condiment so it is not smooth like our standard hot dog mustard.
Prepared mustard is used extensively in Europe as well as America. For information about the vast varieties of this condiment visit the Mustard Museum.
This is a standard grocery store item. Check local gourmet shop for unusual or fancy imported varieties. Cost Plus World Market has some fun varieties too.
