Why Every Foodie Should Add Mustard to Their Pantry

Mustard is a versatile and delicious condiment that should be a staple in every foodie's pantry. From adding flavour to sandwiches and dressings to enhancing marinades and glazes, mustard can take your meals to the next level. In this article, we'll explore the benefits of mustard and why it should be a must-have ingredient in your kitchen.  


What Does Mustard Add to a Dish? 

Mustard adds a tangy, sometimes spicy flavour to dishes that can enhance the overall taste profile. Old German Mustard, for example, is a slightly coarse-grained mustard with a stronger, sharper flavour. It pairs well with hearty meats like pork and beef, as well as cheese and vegetables. Honey Mustard, on the other hand, has a sweeter taste due to the addition of honey. It works well as a dipping sauce for chicken tenders, in a dressing for salads, or as a glaze for roasted vegetables.
