Ah-HA! The denoument

After purchase and extensive taste testing it is this blogs proud proclamation that my tireless search for a decent English style mustard in the local British Columbian grocery stores has reached a successful conclusion. Yup. Keens really does cut the mustard. It is at least equal to expensive imported jars of Colemans and far more widely available. My favourite Dijon Mustard (Glorious with locally bred Angus steak) is also available at a reasonable price, so there is no longer any need for me to undertake a life of crime as a Canadian mustard smuggler (I've got a horrible feeling that's slang for something highly unpleasant). Hooray!

Tonight I am also serving up fresh strawberries dipped in plain chocolate with plain yoghurt for dessert. Those have tested out successful as well. Life is sweet. Yum.

Nothing beats proper English mustard. Is there a Canadian mustard or is it all similar to American mustard?
Smuggling the mustard immediately brought up an image of Peter Mandelson for some reason!

Keens is owned by the same company as Colemans (Unilever), and was the original recipe for English Mustard, at least according to their Wikipedia page. To my jaded taste buds it's almost indistinguishable from the UK brand. Good kit, as they say.

Mustard smuggling brought up an image of Mandelsnake? That's a horrible image to conjure with. Double-Euww
