New in the Market: Colman’s Mustard

Colman'sMustardWe love to try new foods. Some are great. Some don’t measure up and some become staples in our kitchen. See what you think.

I can’t remember a time when my spice shelf did not have a yellow tin of Colman’s Mustard Powder which I add to many recipes. But I must admit I have never reconstituted the mustard powder into a spread nor have I ever tasted Colman’s ready-to-eat mustard.

A brand that is 200 years old can hardly be considered new in the market, but Colman’s ready-to-use mustard may be new to many Americans, as it was to me. The mustard is still made in Norwich, England and holds the Royal Warrant, the royal seal of approval, bestowed upon the brand by Queen Victoria in 1866.

Colman’s Original ready-to-use is a blend of brown and white mustard seeds that gives the mustard a unique fiery kick. It has 10 calories in 1 teaspoon and 180 milligrams of sodium. It comes in either a squeezable plastic or glass bottle. Colman’s adds a zest that is not traditional in typical American yellow mustard. If you enjoy heat it is worth a try.
