Reviewing the Heart of Hotdogs: Mustard Sauces

I love the addition of creamy, tangy yet sweet mustard sauce to my hotdogs. And Shangrila honey mustard is just the perfect fit for all my mustard needs.

Mustard sauce is a popular condiment that is made from the seeds of a mustard plant. The sauce is made by mixing crushed mustard seeds with water, vinegar, and lemon juice, and then flavored with salt and other spices. It has a yellow to dark brown color and can be used as a dip, spread, or topping. It is also used in the marination process of some recipes, including fried fish and zinger patties. Some common dishes that include mustard sauce are hot dogs, hamburgers, and sausages.

Review on Mustard Sauces available at my local grocery store

Making hotdogs at home is fun and while I enjoy doing so, I do not enjoy making mustard sauce at home. I found Shangrila Mustard Sauce and Rossmore Mustard Sauce at my local grocery store and here’s what I think about these sauces. I have also added ratings based on variants available, packaging options, additives information, and pricing.

Shangrila Mustard Sauce

DISLIKE

  • Comes in a non-biodegradable bottle
  • Expensive

 

Shangrila mustard sauces come in two different variants, yellow classic mustard sauce and honey mustard sauce. Both variants are gluten-free, free from additives, and made with 100% natural ingredients. These come in a plastic squeezable bottle which is easy to pour, but not eco-friendly.

Shangrila Yellow Classic Mustard Sauce

Shangrila yellow classic mustard sauce has tangy, and sour flavoring. It has the classic creaminess of mustard sauce. It is perfect to add a spoonful of buttery texture to any recipe.

Shangrila Honey Mustard Sauce

The sweetness from honey cuts right through the tanginess of traditional mustard sauce, making a perfect knock of sweet yet sour punch to add to salads, sandwiches, or even tacos.

Rossmore Mustard Sauce

DISLIKE

  • Comes in different packaging options
  • No information on additives

Rossmore mustard comes in two different packaging options, glass bottle and plastic squeezable bottle. The flavoring is the same in both that is classical tangy mustard flavor. The rossmore also provides powdered mustard to use in marination, pickles or chutneys. It does not provide information on additives, or colorants.

All about Mustard Sauces

Types of Mustard Sauce

Yellow mustard or American mustard is the regular mustard, widely available in the Pakistani market. It is bright yellow and contains turmeric as a base ingredient.

Honey mustard sauce is sweet and tangy, with a 1:1 honey-to-mustard ratio. It is perfect to pair up with fries, chicken strips, or other fried food.

The other flavors of mustard include Dijon mustard sauce and Whole-grain mustard sauce which are not locally available in Pakistan. Dijon mustard is made with wine, whereas whole-grain mustard is a non-grounded form of mustard seeds that can be used to achieve different flavors or strengths.

Uses of Mustard Sauce

Mustard sauce is commonly used as a sandwich spread or a dip for pretzels, or hotdogs but it can also be used in cooking to add flavor to meats and vegetables. For example, it is a common ingredient in deviled eggs and potato salad. Mustard sauce can also be used as a marinade for grilled meats or as a finishing sauce for roasted chicken. Mustard sauce is a versatile ingredient that can add a zesty kick to any dish, be it used as a topping or included in marination.

Buying and Storage of Mustard Sauce

When picking up a bottle of mustard sauce, I prefer squeezable pet bottles for ease of pour, and storage since they are handy and non-fragile. These mustard bottles can be stored in a cold, dark place for up to 3 months.
