I posted a recollection in the General Discussion thread about a wonderful Dijon mustard that was served in the 1940's at a concession stand on a beach on Lake Michigan's shore.  I remember the taste very well and have been trying to find a mustard that comes close for decades.  No luck.  Are there any suggestions?  It had a salty after taste and there were no incongruous herb flavors.

Not sure, but a friend of mine makes a variety of mustards for his deli. Maybe one of his mustards is close to what you're looking for.

I love you Stew, so I ask your forgiveness in advance but that post totally reminded me of this:

Quote
The year was 1968. We were on recon in a steaming Mekong delta. An overheated private removed his flack jacket, revealing a T-shirt with an ironed-on sporting the MAD slogan "Up with Mini-skirts!". Well, we all had a good laugh, even though I didn't quite understand it. But our momentary lapse of concentration allowed "Charlie" to get the drop on us. I spent the next three years in a POW camp, forced to subsist on a thin stew made of fish, vegetables, prawns, coconut milk, and four kinds of rice. I came close to madness trying to find it here in the States, but they just can't get the spices right!

Well he has been going with the Abe Simpson avatar for quite a while so I doubt Stew'd take offense.

So I think we've reached the point where MLB teams have hired every last one of the big/innovative brains that the old BP produced, and now we're left with a bunch of navel-gazing 25 year old chuckleheads.

Given the vagueness of the description of the Object of Affection but the proximity to the Great Lakes, it might be time to contact Mount Horeb.

In other mustard news, I noticed the other night that the post-hippie produce market down the street is selling this. The original idea was that their books were going to be open, hence the name, but only part of their site is currently working.

Leaving that premise aside as a core plank in a business platform, it's a fantastic store to have around, but I do wonder about how much thought really goes into choosing their inventory of dry goods. (For a long time, despite stocking Maesri curry pastes, they only had sour yellow curry and could not be persuaded that kaeng kari isn't the same thing. Somebody seems to have gotten through to them recently, though. The unfolding of their recent acquisition of a liquor license isn't dissimilar.)

That site is amazing, assuming that you like mustard.

FYI, the Mustard Museum no longer resides in Mount Horeb. Or maybe that's your point.

No, I didn't know that they had moved. I ascribe this knowledge gap to general indifference.
