In addition to Colman’s Mustard in jars, we’re now pleased to bring to you the classic English condiment in powder form.
What is Colman’s Mustard Powder?
As the name implies, Colman’s Mustard Powder consists of only one ingredient: finely ground mustard flour. Unlike the ready-mixed version, this mustard powder contains no additional, salt, spices or other flavourings. This means you can use it as a base to make mustard just how you like it, with that famous spicy kick that no other mustard does quite like Colman’s.
For it’s this fieriness that makes people yearn for Colman’s Mustard. Compared to other types of mustard that you may be familiar with, like Dijon mustard, Colman’s is known for its robust, bold flavor that packs a serious punch. It’s considerably spicier and more pungent than your typical yellow mustard, which tends to be milder. Dijon mustard, on the other hand, offers a smoother, less spicy taste compared to Colman’s.
What can I do with Colman’s Mustard Powder?
Colman’s Mustard powder is commonly used to make traditional English Mustard. It takes no time to prepare, and it’s a really convenient way to have as much mustard as you need, any time you need it. To prepare it, simply combine the powder with cold water, let it sit for a few minutes to allow the flavors to meld, and voilà – you have a tangy, sinus-clearing condiment that’s perfect for spreading on roast beef or ham sandwiches. And of course, because you’re making it from powder, you get to decide how strong you want it.
But the real beauty of Colman’s Mustard Powder is its versatility. Sure, you can use it to make mustard, but it’s capable of much more than that. You can use it as a secret weapon in all kinds of dishes. We particularly recommend adding a good spoonful to mac and cheese. Or use it as a base ingredient in sauces, glazes and marinades. Some vinegar, a good spoonful of honey, and a pinch of salt, and you’ve got a delicious condiment that you can tweak in any number of ways with the addition of other herbs and spices.
Colman’s Mustard delivers a sharp, bold, and slightly spicy flavor that is nothing short of distinctive. It has a unique ability to cut through rich and fatty foods, making it an excellent pairing for hearty dishes. The heat it provides is not overwhelming, but rather invigorating, and after its fierce initial impact it dissipates quickly.
