Try out Colman's Mustard on National Hot Dog Day

There's been much buzz about National Hot Dog Day, which is today, July 23rd. All of America is celebrating the ultimate summer cook-out and game day meal. However, one of the condiments that is a perfect accompaniment to a nice steamy hot dog isn't American at all. It's England's traditional zesty mustard.

Colman's has been a staple in the English foodie world for 200 years (200 years exactly. It was first established in 1814!) I'm a big fan of mustards and love the variety that can come from this one simple product. Some are very mild, both in color and taste, others have a darker and richer color and flavor. Some are coarsely ground with a completely different consistency. Others have the added ingredient of horseradish and that certainly wakes up the taste buds. 

Not your typical mustard, Colman's has a bit of a kick and a little goes a long way. The Colman's Mustard trademark of smoldering heat comes from a blend of high-quality brown and white mustard seeds that give you that blazing taste sensation. Besides being a great hot dog condiment, it gives a unique flavor to other recipes, including deviled eggs. I used some recently in a honey mustard glaze for salmon and it was quite delicious!
