I must admit I am not a fan of mustards. I seldom use it in cooking. I use it as a condiment on certain meats. We keep two different pedestrian mustards in the fridge, one very yellow one and one brown one. I have a tin of Coleman's powder for the few recipes calling for it.

I'm probably missing out on many fantastic sauces, dishes etc. I just can get to like it, not even honey mustard (probably because I don't like honey either).

My recipe calls for soaking the seeds (brown) overnight then adding the other ingredients then grinding in a coffee bean grinder. They grind up easily after soaking overnight. I like to leave some of the seeds just barely ground to give the finished result a 'grainy' texture which is traditional in many French mustards.
Thank you. And the picture in your next post looks like what I see on the shelves of my grocery store. The closest I would come to that is maybe is a mustard from some foreign land or homemade.

All that means is that the palace will allow them to show the sign saying that they sell their food item to the palace for the Queen and her family. So if you want to eat like the Queen, go around to all the London shops that sell food and buy what she eats.

Are we twins from a former life? I could have written what you just said. Word for Word.

As a kid, during the summer we would go down to the cranberry bog, pick a handful of ripe cranberries, take a tray out of the bee hive, shake off all the bees, peel back the wax and suck out the honey, then put the cranberries in our mouth with it. I had my fill of honey as a kid. Can't stand it today.

When I make a baked ham, I make a past of dark mustard, drained crushed pineapple and brown sugar. Paste it all over the ham. That is about my use of mustard for me.

It's probably the same with a different name. Colman's isn't Colman's anymore. I believe it belongs to a conglomerate these days.

It's a bit more complicated than that. It involves the issue of a Royal Warrant which requires the fulfilment of certain conditions (and , contrary to what some people think, 'Er Maj pays for the goods and services involved).

Interesting. I was just using my mum's definition. She was saying it didn't really mean a whole lot.

I know she pays for all her goods. In fact she now pays for a lot of things that her father didn't pay for. She paid to have Windsor rebuilt after the fire during her "Horrible Year". Even before the fire was put out, Parliament was raising its voice about the Government having to pay for it.

Anyone make their own mustard??

We keep 3 different mustards on hand. Plain yellow for my middle daughter and son, Dijon for my wife and occasional roast I make and Colman's for me and my oldest daughter, either powder or ready made. Out of all the mustards that I have tasted in US Colman's is the only one that is hot enough for my taste. Of course I have not tasted all mustards available, just your regular grocery store variety.

I love the smooth type of mustards and would not touch the mustards with seeds in them. I am very finicky about texture of food I eat.

Not so. Centuries ago the King or Queen of many European countries would basically 'appoint' (order) the maker of something to make sure the 'something' was always available for the Royal's use b/c it was their favorite/best quality.
Now it's only a symbolic thing but it means the Queen, in this case, has put her stamp of approval on the 'something'.
My great great great grandfather on my father's side was
'Appointed' The Official Cabinetmaker to the King of England.
