    English clearly, just enough bite to make it intresting. Powdered colemans is, as has been mentioned above, the all-round winner of the category for sheer versatility.

    As a kid as a punishment my mam would put a teaspoon of colman's mustard powder on my tongue and make me keep it there for about a minute.

    As a result I will not touch the stuff.

    I found a novel way of avoiding the punishment though, I discovered that if I chucked the contents of the tin down the loo it made my life a lot more pleasant as it was too much effort to go to the shop and replace it each time.

    But yeah... still wont go near it.

    Yocky! Yocky! stuff!

    Dalkey Mustard is teh win...

    Shouldn't you get a ban for suggesting American mustard? Disgusting stuff, hardly any flavour off it, it's just like thick yellow piss. Goddamn Americans, why do they have to do everything half-arsed, right down to watering down their cheese even?

    Colman's mustard. Yum yum yum.

    Most of the american mustards (or certainly the very popular ones) have a sweetening agent that I can't remember the name of right now. Plenty of information around the Internet about it right now though as French's Mustard (which has been mentioned by a good few people on the board) was 100 years old last Friday.

    damn this forum!:p

    i'm now the proud owner of some freshly sliced ham and a jar of Dijon mustard.

    gonna have to try it in a salami sandwich next time:)

  • Registered Users Posts: 20,979 ✭✭✭✭Stark

    Ah yes, should have said that sugar intake is one thing that Americans don't do half-arsed :)

    just some colemans stuff that i bought on the spur of the moment in my local supermarket.
    should've shopped around really (if the mayonaise you can buy in health food shops is anything to go by, their mustard must be yummeh!)

    Didn't know there was a dalkey mustard so I picked up a jar on the way home. Very nice! Quite mild.

    From the jar, "Ingredients: Mustard Seed, Honey, Wine Vinegar, Spices, Sea Salt. No Additives".

    a flagrant disregard for the rules of this forum.
    we need a *custard forum for people like you

  • Registered Users Posts: 15,815 ✭✭✭✭po0k

    Colman // Coleman

    Let me reiterate the difference.
    The former is a brand of especially nice English mustard.
    The name is generally of English origin (though there has been cases of anglicisation/typos leading to cross-over).
    The Latter is the surname of yours truely.
    It is a Cork name. It alludes to a perference for a certain brand of mustard, but nothing more.

    Chauffe, Marcel, chauffe!

    French mustard? People don't have a notion of history, do they? Mustard is a German thing. Brought over from Africa by the Romans to the food loving Germans. Right enough the German region where mustard had it's European birth was forcefully handed over to France a while back but most people in the region are most familiar with senf in case moutard is not the thing to utter in public again soon enough...

    A vote for English mustard? Disgraceful. Although it has to be said that Colmans was the first company in the world to industrialise mustard. Nuff said :rolleyes:

    I'm confident that most posters here like their mustard. You might not have tasted (real) mustard before, so I challenge thee, go for the one and only: Löwensenf :D

    True, but why am I the only person having voted for it?

    I personally never make a decision about what I prefer to put in my mouth without consulting a history book. I have a jar of a German mustard in my fridge actually which is almost empty as it happens. Makes eating those history books much more appetising. Why not just make a recommendation and leave the 'muso' rubbish out.

    I've started eating wedges of cheddar dipped in Colman's. It's rather nice, if you don't mind the distracting sound of your own arteries clanging shut.

  • Closed Accounts Posts: 317 ✭✭athena 2000

    I like Plochman's premium natural stone ground mustard - a German style. Heavenly with a smoked turkey and melted swiss sandwich on toasted whole wheat bread. Mmmmm. It's a US brand with lots of zing!

    curious mustard myths & facts

    English all the way baby!
    Although Honey mustard is the ultimate mustard.

    :D - thought this forum was a mirage!

    I love Coleman's English Mustard and will go through around a jar a week. Will NOT eat my meat without it. I also like it on chedder cheese. Whats really nice is to get a packet of Tayto cheese and onion and break them up in the bag first. Get two slices of bread with small amount of butter and then spread a fair amount of Coleman's English Mustard and fill with the crisps and grated Kilmeaden Red Cheddar cheese. Delicious.

    I've not really tried many other mustards besides the american style ones on burgers which aren't hot enough.

    This is :o but I remember my very first taste of mustard given to me by my grandad. Seriously he was eating a chop and I was around two yrs old and was crying for some so he gave me some but their was mustard on it and I loved it!!

  • Moderators, Social & Fun Moderators Posts: 10,501 Mod ✭✭✭✭ecksor

    Despite my scepticism I've purchased a bottle of French's, which DeVore and Asok love so much ... I suppose I should try them on sausages?

  • Closed Accounts Posts: 31,967 ✭✭✭✭Sarky

    Cheese eating surrendermustard.

    Try some on a burger too. Nice.

    My variation on this is cheese singles (the only time I eat them) and hellmans mayo instead of butter. Very tasty.

    You failed to include Irish... Although, as much as I loath to admit it, I do like English mustard.
