Ingredient: Coarse Grain Mustard
n. mustard made with whole mustard seeds
I love mustard. Really good mustard, with the coarse seeds in there for texture + heat.
With grilling season upon us, I implore you to try some of these heavy-handed mustards with your meats + veggies. Perfect with brats and burgers, and equally good with veggies, they are especially delish with a cheese plate. Yum-yum.
My favorite coarse grain mustard is Grey Poupon Harvest Coarse Ground Mustard, which was also highly recommended by the folks over at Cook's Illustrated. Others that received high marks included Grey Poupon Country Dijon Mustard and Trois Petit Cochons Moutarde a l’Ancienne Whole Grain Mustard.
Some to stay away from (according to Cook's Illustrated):Westbrae Natural Stoneground Mustard, Inglehoffer Original Stone Ground Mustard, Raye’s Old World Gourmet Mustard.
