Saturday Is National Mustard Day
The stuff has a long history dating back to Roman times, when they experimented with mixing unfermented grape juice with ground mustard seed. Not much has changed since then. Seeds from the mustard plant are used whole, ground, cracked, or bruised and mixed with water, vinegar, or some other liquid, depending on the desired flavor.
So this Saturday, fire up the grill for those hot dogs and bring out the mustard. Hold the ketchup, please.
