Thinking ahead…

It’s not quite Thanksgiving yet, but it’s definitely a good idea to think ahead. Things get busy quickly, so get the mustards below in advance and keep this post in mind when you’re relaxing Friday afternoon. If you’re like us, you’ll have a fridge full of delicious leftovers. While you can just reheat and attempt to relive your Thanksgiving feast, you might want to instead try to reinvent those yummy leftovers.

Here are recipes for two great ways to turn turkey and other Thanksgiving staples into awesome reimagined post-turkey day meals…

Small Business Saturday

American Express has again declared the Saturday after Thanksgiving to be “Small Business Saturday.” We do accept American Express cards and are participating in their promotion but, we have a question: WHY JUST ONE DAY FOR SMALL BUSINESSES? We think they have it all wrong. Let the BIG BOX stores have one day and give us small businesses the rest of the year… remember to support small businesses all year long — and on Saturday, November 26!

Hot Off the Motherboard

The 2017 catalog is at the printer and will hit the post office later this week. But you can see it now by viewing a “Pretty Darn Funny” version of it – that’s what PDF stands for. Go ahead, click away. You can print it out or just gaze in wonder at it. You can even order online or by calling us. Remember: unlike the airlines, we do not charge extra to speak to a real live person.

Oprah: Where Are They Now?

That’s a good question. “They” in this case means the Curator and Mrs. Mustard, aka, Barry and Patti Levenson. Fans of the Mustard Museum know that Barry and Patti are still at the helm of this crazy dream called the Mustard Museum.

But since this appearance on the Oprah Winfrey Show in 1999, there have been a lot of changes — but still, a LOT remains the same. The original “Mount Horeb Mustard Museum” is currently located in Middleton, WI, and goes by the now-familiar moniker “National Mustard Museum”. The collection has ballooned to more than 5,900 mustards from all 50 states and over 70 countries. What has always remained the same since 1999 is the unwavering passion for mustard and mustard history that originally drove Barry to embark on this crazy, amazing journey all those years ago.

Oprah recently caught up with the Curator on her “Where Are They Now?” series on her network, OWN. Watch this short version of the segment that aired on October 29, 2016, and see the Curator talk about the Mustard Museum in 1999 and then get his update in 2016 (we’ll forgive Oprah for misspelling the Curator’s last name to resemble the famous Rain Main director’s spelling).

A Mustard Recall

For the first time in the history of the Mustard Museum, a mustard manufacturer has issued a recall of some of its products. Brownwood Farm has notified us that two of its products, BBQ Mustard Glaze and Cherry Mustard BBQ Sauce, contain soy that is not identified on the label’s list of ingredients.

The products themselves are safe unless you have a soy allergy. If you have purchased either of these products from us and have a soy allergy, please contact us.

Again, if you do not have a soy allergy, there should be no problem consuming these products. Sorry to have to bring you such serious news…

For Chemists, Physicists…

… and other science-minded geeks.

Our updated Periodic Table of the Mustards t-shirt is here, recognizing the many fine mustard companies who support America’s favorite condiment museum. You know, “Periodically, things get absolutely, positively condimentally elementary.”

Come See Us!

The Travel Channel thinks you should… we’re on their list of “Top 10 Food & Wine Museums”. The Curator told me that we should be especially proud to be on this list and share company with the Idaho Potato Museum. Why, you ask? Because everyone knows that a good grainy mustard is the perfect topping for a fluffy baked potato.

Here’s a few mustards to try on your baked potato:

Boetje’s (BTJ100)
Haus Barhyte Grainy Garlic Mustard (HBT104)
Pommery Moutarde de Meaux (PMM100)
Tracklements British Beer Mustard (TRK120)
Mosterd Echte Zaanse (ZNS100)

The Curator’s ‘Momentum’

Well, the Curator has gained some momentum in the Poupon U Presidential Poll. We said “some”… and he still needs your support to keep the momentum moving in his direction. As the Curator begins to climb in the POUPON Presidential Poll, the Donald has eked ahead of Hillary, but neither major party candidate’s mustard has more than 50% of mustards purchased. As of 5 pm Sunday 9/18, it’s: Trump 49.3%; Clinton 47.5%; Curator 3.2%.

Buy your Presidential Preference Mustards now! And stuff the ballot box (no limit!).
