Pass the mustard! Mustard packs a flavorful punch, adding a distinctive taste to everything it touches. It’s no wonder people from all over the world— especially the residents of a small town in Wisconsin— love this yellow sauce.
In Mount Horeb, Wisconsin, people have dedicated a museum and a special day to mustard. In 1986, the museum’s founder, Barry Levenson, discovered a passion for mustard and resolved to create the world’s largest collection. The museum opened in 1992 and currently boasts 4,400 mustards from over 60 countries. Mustard memorabilia such as post cards, old advertisements and mustard posts are also displayed in the museum’s gallery.
Today, the first Saturday in August, the town of Mount Horeb celebrates National Mustard Day. The event kicks off with performance by a live band. Guests compete in contests and games such as the “Mustard Wheel of Fortune.” Free hot dogs are given out— as long as one eats them with mustard! Other activities include cooking demonstrations using mustard and free tours of the Mustard Museum. To top it all off, a local restaurant serves scoops of mustard ice cream.
Mustard not only has a long and interesting history but also tastes great. Celebrate this crowd-pleasing sauce today with your favorite food— covered in mustard!
