National Mustard Day

When I was a kid, ketchup was my favorite condiment. I would put it on everything. I avoided mustard, however, at all costs. Back in the "old days" when my mother took me to baseball games at Wrigley Field, hot dogs purchased from the vendor came with mustard on it already. I wasn't happy about this and I made a mess scraping as much mustard off of the hot dog as I could.

These days, my relationship with mustard is different...I love it! Today is National Mustard Day and if I could, I would visit the Mustard Museum in Mt. Horeb, Wisconsin.

If you happen to be anywhere near Mt. Horeb, Wisconsin today stop by the museum. For more information, visit Last night, WGN Radio personality Nick Digilio had Mustard Museum curator Barry Levenson on his program. For a limited time, the podcast is available here. It sounds like Culver's will also feature mustard custard as its flavor of the day. Check your location for availability.

If you cannot make it to the Mustard Museum, celebrate National Mustard Day today. Like the old days, I'm going to have an Oscar Mayer hot dog with my favorite yellow mustard, French's. This time around I'm going to put extra mustard on it. Enjoy the day and the weekend!

How about you, what's your favorite mustard?

I've always liked mustard. I can remember making mustard sandwiches as a kid.

Hi Larry B.

Wow, mustard that's love for mustard. Good to hear you liked mustard at an early age. Gotta look for that Ballpark mustard again. Thanks for stopping by.

Hi Tim,
My favorite is mustard on a roast beef sub. So - there's a museum dedicated to mustard? And not all that far from where I'm at! Wow!

Hi Lance:

Mustard on a roast beef sub sounds good, I'm getting hungry thinking about it. I'm going to have to hit the mustard museum and the Leinenkugal Brewery sometime in the not too distant future.
