Just wondering what mustard do you like to use for eating, and for cooking?

I seldom use mustard unless it's honey mustard on chicken nuggets from McDonald's. I've never cared for mustard. Right now we have yellow and spicy brown in the fridge. The yellow is so old it probably should be thrown out.

I like just about all mustards, don't use the wholegrain that often though so I don't keep it on hand.

Believe it or not I have never had mcDonalds nuggets, in fact I probably only have any sort of McDonalds maybe a total of three times a year. Guess I am strange. If that mustard in the fridge is old it probably has just lost a bit of it's flavour. I would use it next time you have gravy with something and just stir in a bit.

The wholegrain one can look really pretty if you mix it in with whatever you are using to crumb something or in a crumb topping. I love mustards and right now have, mild English, American , hot English, Dijon, mustard powder BUT no wholegrain lol. Probably will substitute with either Dijon or horseradish cream.

Well, I like plain old yellow mustard. Some of the others don't agree with me. I once learned long ago from an Asian friend that the hot mustard in the Chinese restaurants is just dry mustard mixed with water. Make that and that doe not bother

I use spicy brown mustard on sandwiches, dijon in sauces and salad dressings, mustard powder (mixed with beer or white wine) for Chinese food-don't care for plain yellow mustard but DH does use it for marinating catfish to fry. Love whole grain mustard also.

If someone opens a beer grab it and steal a little and mix that with the mustard powder instead of half the water. Do it all the time. Always have mustard powder in the house. It is also great to mix 1/2 cup olive oil, 1/3 cup red wine vinegar, 1 teaspoon mustard powder and your favourite herb, shake, stand for a bit and use it on a salad. Yum. Of course you can use more mustard powder if you like.
