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.

Origin of National Mustard Day:
This special day was created by the National Mustard Museum in Mount Horeb, Wi. It was created as an annual event in 1991.

    WOW, the irony is I randomly googled Mustard today to see if it's spiciness had any benefits on metabolism. HealithierKen is on my friendfeed so that's how I found this blog, I didn't even know there was a National Mustard Day. LOL!

    Here was the article...

    I actually use mustard on BLT's instead of mayo, and I also use it in replace of salad dressing due to it's virtual 0 calorie content.
