What I Think:
I mentioned my fondness for mustard when I reviewed the Horseradish-Dill Mustard from SchoolHouse Kitchen … or rather, my grampa’s fondness for mustard! I was quite fond of my grampa, and I don’t know that I would have had such an appreciation for the condiment if not for him.
When I found this mustard at Whole Foods, I knew I had to try it. After all, I do live in Washington, and we’re quite proud of the Walla Walla Sweet Onions here.
As great as this mustard is on sandwiches (and it is!) I think I prefer it as a dip for pretzels! I like the flavor balance of this mustard. It is pleasantly sweet, but there is a spicy undertone to it. Not what I’d call spicy-hot, but, there is just enough kick to it to keep it interesting. The texture is creamy and it looks a little more like a thick dressing than a mustard. It has the right amount of tangy flavor from the vinegar, a little bit of spice to it from the mustard and a mild sweetness from the onion.
My Final Thoughts:
This yummy mustard will turn a simple snack food like the humble pretzel into something quite extraordinary.
