Colman’s Mustard Adds a Fiery Flavor to Traditional Thanksgiving Favorites

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 ( 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.

Not to be mistaken for the yellow mustard frequently squirted on hotdogs or hamburgers, Colman’s Mustard is a powerful, versatile ingredient that at-home cooks, as well as restaurant chefs, use to add an extra dimension of irresistible flavor to their meals. Place a dollop on your turkey, add a teaspoon to your favorite salad vinaigrette, or try an exciting twist on classic Thanksgiving mashed potatoes or delicious holiday ham with the following recipes:

Colman’s Sweet Potato and Mustard Mash


4 large sweet potatoes
