National Mustard Day

August 6

National Mustard Day - August

National Mustard Day celebrates a versatile savory condiment that adds a unique flavor to even the simplest of dishes. Mustard is loved in many countries of the world, although everywhere it is prepared in its own way. The American variety has a relatively mild taste and liquid texture, so even those who do not like too spicy dishes like it.

History

Mustard first appeared in ancient Egypt. Ancient Greece and Rome also used this seasoning. In medieval Europe, mustard seed was grown by French monks – its sales brought a lot of money to enterprising servants of the Lord. It was in this country that the original spicy additive gained the greatest popularity.

American mustard dates back to the beginning of the 20th century – its homeland is the city of Rochester.

The holiday in honor of the spice was established at the initiative of the National Mustard Museum – if possible, be sure to visit it on this day.

Interesting facts

  • In ancient times, mustard was used as a medicine: with its help, severe pain was relieved, including toothache.
  • The famous condiment lover was King Louis XI.
  • Mustard owes its bright yellow color not to the main raw material – mustard seed – but to the natural dye turmeric.

How to celebrate

Enjoy your favorite spice in combination with meat and vegetable dishes. Go beyond the familiar American variety: try spicy French, sweet German or vigorous Russian.

Mustard goes well with other sauces: in a hot dog, it harmoniously coexists with ketchup, and if you mix it with honey, you get an excellent sauce for meat or hard cheeses. Do not be afraid to experiment: it was as a result of experiments that most of the world’s culinary masterpieces appeared.
