So says the website of – we kid you not – the National Mustard Museum (“Home to the World’s Largest Collection of Mustards and Mustard Memorabilia”) in Middleton, Wisconsin, about Alstertor Düsseldorf Style Mustard.
We found this appealing little curio of a condiment in neither Wisconsin nor Düsseldorf, but atop the meat case at Monmouth Meats in Red Bank.
Butcher Stew Goldstein, who’s been carrying the product for a couple of months, tells PieHole the mustard earned its place there the way everything on that stainless steel surface does: by winning over his taste buds.
“It’s mild, but it’s _______ flavorful,” says Goldstein, using an adjective that’s anything but mild. He also likes that this fluffy spread doesn’t give him heartburn.
The 250-milliliter (8.45-ounce) jar goes for $2.89. And when it’s empty, well, we think we can find another use for it that would pass muster (sorry!) in Düsseldorf.
