(Santa Barbara, California) – October 24, 2011 – While Thanksgiving is a great time to bond with family and friends and give thanks for the fulfillment they bring, food is undoubtedly a favorite part of the holiday for many. Traditional dishes like mashed potatoes, yams, and roasted turkeys fill the air with familiar smells, evoking memories of good laughs and full bellies. However, sometimes the same old flavors can lose their luster. This Thanksgiving, add Colman’s Mustard (www.colmansusa.com) to the menu for a zesty flavor that will liven up any of the traditional dishes.
Colman’s Mustard is a natural way to add extra flavor to any healthy meal. Besides being made from naturally grown, top-quality mustard seeds, Colman’s Mustard is gluten free, preservative free, and contains only 10 calories per teaspoon. With a superior taste and unforgettable heat, Colman’s Mustard is a pantry staple for any discerning cook who wants to cook low-fat, flavorful, exciting, natural meals.
Colman’s Mustard is tangy, flavorful and adds just the right zing to healthy meals. It is a wonderful dipping sauce for grilled chicken strips, and a delicious spread for sandwiches and veggie burgers. Colman’s Mustard would make a great addition to your Thanksgiving meal. Below are a few of my favorite Colman’s Mustard recipes.
Colman’s Sweet Potato & Mustard Mash
4 large sweet potatoes
220ml double cream
6 level teaspoons of Colman’s Prepared Mustard
Juice of 2 Lemons
Peel the sweet potatoes and cut them into large cubes.
Boil them for 15 minutes in salted water until they are just tender but not soft.
Drain, and transfer to a blender and add the cream. Blend for about 30 seconds until you have a smooth mixture.
Return the potatoes to the pan and stir in the Colman’s Mustard, warm through and add the lemon juice.
