Add the Missing Ingredient to Your Summertime BBQs
Long summer days, warm evening breezes, and fun gatherings with friends and family are upon us with National Grilling Month approaching in July. Endless, sun-filled days provide the perfect setting in which to savor every ounce of deliciousness that summer has to offer. Fortunately for anyone from the novice cook to the master chef Colman’s mustard is a tried-and-true side-kick for firing up some zest and putting a refreshing zing in otherwise conventionally-grilled foods.
Colman’s exudes a fiery, layered taste through its rare combination of brown mustard seeds (Brassica Juncea) and white mustard seeds (Sinapas Alba), and has been kicking off parties with quality flavor since its renowned inception in 1814 from the countryside of Norwich, England. Boundless fields of yellow, flowering mustard seed produce the ideal source for a pure, cholesterol-free, gluten-free, and kosher-made spice to liven up meals around the world.
There’s no secret in how to use Colman’s; you can slather your entrée and cook it on the grill, or just enrich the variety of flavors within your meal by using Colman’s mustard as a fiery condiment for dipping. Regardless of what part of your cuisine you choose to enhance with a revitalizing boost in flavor and spice, Colman’s is sure to add just the extra edge your taste buds did not even know they were craving.
An essential instrument in the art of cooking versatility, Colman’s comes in two forms: the classic prepared mustard and all-purpose dry mustard powder. Both prepared and powdered Colman’s add an extra oomph to marinades, dips, and sauces, like the one and only Mustard Barbecue Glaze:
