ISO a source for good Asian mustard?
 
I'd like to buy some of the mustard you get in the various Chinese restaurants. The kind that waters my eyes and burns going down. Any recommended brands?

This one is excellent.

Beaver Chinese Hot Mustard - 4 oz. glass [123] - $1.25 : Beaverton Foods, the largest producer of non-refrigerated horseradish and specialty mustards in the United States.

On a side note, I'm actually judging at the Word-Wide Mustard Competition this year.

It ain't asian but Coleman's is mighty good.

Darn good stuff! We'll be using some to make mustard sauce for some stoney claws I got in Florida City today.:yum:

+1

Colman's is the same as Chinese mustard. You can even just buy the powder and mix as you need it. Just allow the prepared mustard you make to stand for about 20 mins to develop the flavor.

That is how we buy it, ground and dry in the tin.:smile:

I also prefer using the powder, you get the exact level of heat you want when you mix it yourself :smile:
It's cheaper too!

We always had a tin of mustard powder in our pantry when I was growing up and I still have one today! Not the same tin :wink:

Colman's English mustard blend, double superfine is not bad but-
.... Is kinda pricey
.... Contains wheat flour

Snip 13 03-26-2013 12:42 PM

The powder works out cheaper than the jar once mixed. Here by us anyway, not sure how it compares in the US.

I can buy 1 pound of Penzey's hot Canadian mustard powder for $5.60. The last 1/4 pound tin of Colman's set me back $5.39.

Japanese hot mustard, karashi, is very hot. They're commonly sold in powder form, you just add water.

I must look if we have it in SA :smile: Thanks for the tip!

Colmans is nice and hot.
I like it a lot.
If you don't use it often then I'd go with it.
If price is a factor then look into the other options.

Aunt Bea 03-26-2013 04:49 PM

Another vote for Colman's.

The website has a great recipe for Sweet Hot Mustard. They make it with honey but, I like it made with real maple syrup.

I buy dry mustard powder in the bulk section of my local health foodstore and then mix it with a little white wine to serve with eggrolls and pot stickers. It's just as good as the premixed in jars and waaaaay cheaper.

I buy Keen's, which is now manufactured by Colman. It doesn't list any ingredients, so it has to be all mustard. I can't remember ever seeing it in any other form than powder.

mere jealousy or even envy doesn't quite cover it! :ermm:

one more vote for colemans!

danbuter 03-27-2013 11:41 AM

Honestly, I didn't know dried mustard was even an available product. Time to go shopping!

Addie 03-27-2013 03:49 PM

:ohmy:Just a bit of trivia for you Canadiens. Most of the world supply for both the yellow and brown mustard seed is grown in Canada. :angel:
