Martha’s Find: Raye’s Mustard

rayes mustardLast week, on one of the new season’s episodes of her tv show, Martha introduced viewers to her latest ‘find’ – Raye’s Mustard, which she discovered in Maine. She showed several varieties and raved about the mustard. So of course I had to try it. I ordered a 4 oz jar of the Down East Schooner Mustard. The jar was $2.75 (reasonable) however the shipping was $9.95!

Despite the outrageous price tag, I kept an open mind about the mustard. And I’m glad I did. Because it was good. In this house we have several mustards in the fridge – store brand yellow, Gray Poupon country style Dijon, store brand honey mustard and Nance’s sweet hot mustard. In general, I am not a big mustard fan, but Mr. MarthaAndMe is. We sampled this mustard and while it is a basic yellow mustard, it was much, much better than store brand yellow mustard. It had a purer mustard flavor and had no aftertaste. We really liked it. I’ll give this find a thumbs up (but I probably won’t be footing the $10 shipping cost again).

    $10 shipping? Oh, my. What ever happened to paying just for the shipping and not the outrageous price for “handling?”

    I know – and this is for the world’s smallest jar of mustard. It’s not like they had to use a big box or lots of bubble wrap!

    I will keep my eyes peeled for this mustard in some of our fancy local delis. My husband loves to try different types of mustard. Being from Sweden, he puts it in yellow pea soup!

    How funny. My sister-in-law puts ketchup in chicken noodle soup. I think that might be slightly grosser!

    I’ve seen that mustard when I’ve been in Maine but never tried it, glad to know it’s good.

    That is so funny that you reviewed this mustard. I just bought some at Big Lot’s for $2. I am a mustard fan, every kind except honey mustard (I don’t like sweet things that aren’t supposed to be sweet). They have about four different flavors, and I got everyone except the honey mustard. I run across a lot of good buys at BL. I have friends from South Africa that bring back their favorite hot sauce Peri-Peri pepper sauce. I found it at BL (a lot cheaper too), go figure. Hope you can check it out.

    Someday maybe I’ll show some of my mustard collection! LOL!

    Well it just figures that it’s at Big Lots and I paid for shipping! On their site they have tons of flavors – maybe 20. I totally love that you have a mustard collection. That is so Martha!
