National Mustard Day
When : First Saturday in August
National Mustard Day celebrates the "King of the Condiments".
Mustard is a must have for hot dogs, sausages, and a wide range of sandwiches. Its an important ingredient in many recipes, too.
When it comes to condiments, Mustard is among the most popular. When it comes to longevity, mustard is unrivaled. It has literally been in use to spice up meals for thousands of years. To retain it's status, mustard has not stood still. Rather, it has diversified. It's not just yellow anymore. There's a growing selection, including Honey Mustard, Bold and Spicy, Sharp and Creamy, and of course Dijon Mustard. Take a trip to your refrigerator, and you will probably find two or three different types of mustard. A trip to the grocery store, will reveal even more selections.
Have a happy National Mustard Day.
