Here's something to think about when you think about mustard.

In the Bible, it is written that Abraham is said to have served tongue with mustard. From hieroglyphics, we know that Egyptians are said to have eaten mustard seeds by chewing them along with meat. In Greece, during the 6th century BC, Pythagoras mentioned mustard as a cure for scorpion bites. (Okay, so I guess that’s not a seasoning, but it is interesting. Pythagoras obviously thought about more things than right triangles.) Also in Greece during about 500 BC, Aristophanes wrote of mustard-spiced stews. Now to Italy. Did you know that in 200 BC, the Roman playwright, Plautus, in Pseudolus, has the cook saying: "It is rubbed with criminal mustard, which burns the eyes of those who grate it."

Also in Italy, during the 1st Century AD, Pliny the Elder claimed that mustard would improve lazy housewives. Ha! He also said: "you cannot have a drunk wife and a full bottle at the same time", but that's another matter. In France, during Charlemagne’s reign in the 9th Century AD, mustard was cultivated on imperial lands and in the monasteries in Paris. And lastly, I have found unconfirmed references that Benjamin Franklin was responsible for bringing mustard to the United States sometime around 1780, after he returned from his position as the Ambassador to France.

I make two very special mustards, and both are the same price.

You can choose Garlic Mustard, which is delicious, or my special Garlic Mustard with horseradish and honey, which goes great with any of my sausages.
