Congratulations to Boetje’s “Dutch” Stone Ground Mustard, the 2016 Grand Champion at the World-Wide Mustard Competition. Boetje’s took home the Gold in the Coarse-Grained category and was a clear favorite of the more than forty judges in the “Best-of-Show” round. This is the first time in the history of the competition that the top grainy mustard has won the Grand Champion award.
What makes Boetje’s so special? First, the flavor. Unlike so many grainy mustards, Boetje’s has a bold mustard kick that comes from the mustard and only the mustard. You might think it has horseradish but it’s all about the mustard.
Second, the texture. This is a satisfying grainy mustard that pairs well with smooth cheeses and in mashed potatoes. (The Curator puts it on baked potatoes – without the fat of butter of sour cream and it’s fabulous).
Third, it is as simple and natural as you will find. Only five ingredients: water, vinegar, mustard seed, sugar and salt. And only 7 calories per serving, so go crazy.
