Totally forgot that it was Amora who pushed so much mustard through our pantry with its rotating Character glasses, although Amora is not a kid-friendly mustard unless one is French or German, I would think.    Surprisingly, we easily got through all this mustard!

Omg, major flashback!  We had several too!  Fantastic you still have them!

That's one way to look at it. Another might be called hoarding!

You don’t have grandkids.   These have all been acquired “by special request” within the past 5 years, and better hire a goid defense lawyer should you get rid of or break one.

As i've mentioned in the Mustard and China topic, any mustard is difficult to find here - I  can only buy in the overpriced "foreign food" supermarket attached to the city's main department store.

 

By preference, I go for Maille - either whole grain or regular. When they are out of that I go for Clovis.

Sometimes, they only have this German brand, made Dijon style. It's acceptable.

Only once did I find this! A 20g miniature. Not Dijon, though.

They are not growing the mustard between the grape vines. They are getting it from Canada. 80% of mustard seed used to produce Dijon mustard are grown in Canada. 

 

What happens to the acres of mustard we see in fields and among crops in mid France?

They might use some of that for moutarde, but not nearly enough for the mountains of moutarde that they export.

One year we went to Italy...I specifically was looking for the stuff that they really use to make Mostarda.

Purchased in a pharmacy, and probably as bad to bring in as fresh milk cheeses...

You don't want to get a whiff of this stuff.

I bet @Kerry Beal will be green with envy if she sees this. I know she spent much time and effort trying to get someone to bring this from Italy for her. No doubt she has moved on from mostarda now so unless she can weaponize it....

This is interesting, about the mustard that Fallot produces...

Quote

In fact, the members of the association have decided to offer a product that is distinct from Dijon Mustard, which has become a generic name which is produced just as well in a number of other countries such as Holland, the United States or Japan, as it is in France.

Manufactured from seed grown in Burgundy and combined with AOC Burgundy wine, "Burgundy Mustard" is a product deeply rooted in Burgundian soil.
To give the consumer a guarantee of the origins of the product they purchase, as well as to enhance the work carried out by an entire commodity sector, the association has decided to place its product within the framework of a certificate of conformity as set out in the Law of the 30th January 1994 relating to the recognition of food products through Protected Origin Identification.

Oh it sneaks into many dishes for me as well. I've been tempted to order some from Philippe's. since not getting to DTLA anytime soon. That is sinus clearing yet addictively flavorful. https://www.philippes.com/store/philippe-s-hot-mustard-1.html

 

OMG Phillippe's mustard! Since leaving LA I crave it!

Oh yes. No idea where my mugs disappeared to along with my grainy mustard crocks (with the red wax seal). I used those ad a en/pencil holder. People in the office would come over and fondle it ostensibly needing a writing instrument!

I find that in the mustard world, the german mustards are very under represented. I bought "The Complete Mustard" by Robin Weir, only to discover that there was no mention of any German mustard or mustard inspired dishes from Germany.

We did not use it in dishes (Austrian Hungarian background) but at German festivals Senf was ever present and de rigueur for the brats in buns.

The northern german mustards (dusseldorf et al) vs the southern (Bavarian) are quite different, and I would really enjoy an in-depth introduction to the various styles.
