I imagine today’s the last day of somewhat regular activity of the year, so I wish you all a lovely holiday if you’re celebrating and a happy and healthy new year!
Ramble of the Day
Here’s a quick food take: I don’t think yellow mustard should be the most commonly available mustard in the United States (or anywhere, really).
Yellow mustard is the least dynamic mustard of the group, and it seems like mustard is designed to be substantial. Every mustard I’ve had is a better mustard than yellow mustard, and I’m sure many of the mustards I have not had are better than yellow mustard.
I would recommend spicy brown mustard as the go-to mustard because it is milder than the name suggests. My other go-to mustard is dijon — you have to be careful with it, but it’s surprisingly versatile and adds the right amount of punch if you get your measurements right.
tl;dr: I don’t care for yellow mustard.
