“Grey Poupon Dijon. It has a better taste. Yellow mustard is OK sometimes, but I particularly like Dijon. It’s better for poultry and marinades.”

“I think it’s either Dijon or spicy brown mustard.”

“I like the flavor of honey Dijon mustard.”

“I actually don’t eat mustard at all. I just never have liked the taste of it. I don’t eat it on anything.”

Capons are castrated roosters... I've known this since at least 11th grade, when we had an amiable and good-natured chemistry teacher named "Mr. Capen." A classroom wag, ignoring the difference in spelling, brought this to the attention of the entire class early in the schoolyear.

Mr. Capen endured the ribbing about his name with good grace. We all loved him--he was a favorite teacher, so the teasing was "with" him instead of "against" him... In the middle of a quiet lull, you'd hear soft clucking from one side or the other of the room..that kind of thing.

I just looked up "capon" on Wikipedia to see how they define it. According to them, "In this procedure the testes of the cock are completely removed;..."

I can't say I've ever before read a phrase beginning, "the testes of the cock..." Not sure there's any more to say about that!

sunflower sue, thanks for the clarification---I have actually argued that it is a root --like horseradish and have lost every time---3 or 4 saying I was wrong one time----so NOW I know.

Capons??? Isn't that some sort of bi-sexual chicken or something???

I like spicy the best on sandwiches, regular on hamburgers and honey mustard on chicken fingers! Yum!

That will be all for today's culinary arts 101 class. Tomorrow we will be discussing the difference between capons and capers. Your essays on "Why bother boiling beer brats in beer" is due on Friday.

Gulden's Spicy Brown Mustard - I use to work in product development for the company that makes it. Nothing like it right off the line, mustard looses its kick over time. Putting it in the fridge helps but then you get that separation thing going on. (syneresis)

acg----oh crap!! wasabi will seriously clean out your sinuses. In the winter I will purposely ask for extra at a Chinese or sushi bar and slather as much as I can stand until I tear up----but you can bet you'll clear your nasal passages!!

Isn't wasabi a type of mustard? That dude on Jackass 1 snorted that stuff. I think it hurt him, at least that was the impression I got from the extreme vomiting that took place after he did it.

I just saw Miss Scarlett an hour ago, frantically searching for her electric candlestick in the Billiard Room. She was inconsolable. Coincidence?

I've never seen anyone snort mustard, but I have seen a cop blow beer out his nose.

I would be more inclined to picture you as Maude.

RI, first off -- the question on the day after the Vice President's right-hand man is convicted is about condiments. What can I say if my answer tended more toward the blood red type, whatever its base ingredient.

As far as musical junkies, Bird died in 1955 and Joplin in 1970, not '72. There have been a string of strung-out musicians and bands since, but few top those early examples for a great waste of talent. And that Cowboy Junkies stuff you posted sounded like something you would hear as the backdrop to an episode of the Gilmore Girls. Yawn city. Try a little Social Distortion to wake yourself up.

Just normal yellow table Mustard I buy in France is so much stronger than US. It is fantastic. Makes me wonder how our US palates ever became satisfied with bland "French's." . Trinity: Lots of mustard grown around Dijon area of France. In US we use "Dijon" as an adjective for spicy mustard styles. Not sure it has the same connotation in France.

TOB - thanks - now I am really going to make the effort to eat more mustard this month. And I will try some new varieties also. And you know, I really will be doing the farmers in Alberta a huge favour as huge fields of mustard are readily seen on the drive south through central Alberta. They are a very pretty sight. A cash crop in my province.

Don't really eat much mustard but when I have ham I like the dijon kind, Grey Poupon or I also like the German grainy kind of mustard. Where the hang did this question come from? Oh and there is a horseradish kind of mustard, to be sure.

Ketchup. - bea

First. Are you sure it is not Catsup? True ketchup is fish brine based. True catsup is tomato based.

Second. Catch up. 1972 is long gone. Expand your musical horizons. Don't limit yourself. George McGovern was not all that special...

I like the free-range, fair-trade mustard that are hormone and antibiotic free. If you have ever tasted it you can immediately tell the difference! Mustard is not meant to be raised on big corporate farms before they are slaughtered exploited by low paid corporate slaves. Nope. In fact I ate nothing but all organic, non-genetically modified mustard for thirty days and lost 35 pounds!

True story.

Basic French's yellow mustard. Mmm, that makes me want a brat really bad, even though it's only 8:30 in the morning. I like a little dijon on certain things and in a potato salad recipe I have. This is a weird ?, btw. Mustard, really?

Forgive me for being so anal, but that ain't mustard.

There's an Italian deli in Riverside, MO that is run by these OLD women. The SLOWEST service ANYWHERE, and they get your order wrong about half the time... but they make their own mustard. Pretty good.

I may have to try this Stadium Mustard you speak of. The mustard that the Boulevard Grill at Kauffman Stadium uses is pretty good. No clue if it is a Boulevard brand or if I had too many Boulevards during the course of the game and it's just stale beer from the vat mixed with grease from the sausages.

This might have been interesting if the question had been asked at Free State Brewery, where it's Mustard March. Go get yourself some good mustard.

Since it was asked at Checkers, I would imagine the LJW is running out of things to ask.
