Not too long ago, we tasted our Organic Yellow Mustard. It was good. But it struck us that it could be better. And so we set out on a mustard quest, a mythical journey to discover the best of all possible yellow mustards. Our travels took us across the United States and back again, and ultimately, to the "New!" "Improved!" "Less Expensive!" version of Trader Joe's Organic Yellow Mustard that you'll now find in our stores.
Our supplier uses organic mustard seed grown in the United States, stoneground in the traditional European style, and blended with other organic ingredients like vinegar, salt & sugar. You'll notice that our Yellow Mustard doesn't have the vivid, electric yellow color found in many commercial yellow mustard brands (though it does come in a very yellow bottle). Its rich yellow color comes from organic turmeric and paprika.
Squeeze Trader Joe's Organic Yellow Mustard on hot dogs and hamburgers. Brush it onto chicken before you grill it. Blend it into sauces and dressings. It's gluten free, kosher, and just $1.69 for each nine ounce squeezable bottle.
