We’re happy to announce that the edits we submitted to Wikipedia have been accepted. On the page that is a “List of Mustard Brands”, the Boetje’s data now links to this very website. The information has also been updated to include the new Bourbon Barrel Aged flavor and the information about our 2016 World Wide Mustard Grand Champion title.
What is your favorite way to use your favorite mustard when you are grilling out? Do you kick up your barbecue sauce with the old world flavor? Do you slather Boetje’s Bourbon Barrel Aged flavor on your chops or steaks? Is there a family recipe for grilled asparagus that the world should know about?
Tell us how you use Boetje’s and we just might post your recipe here in our blog. You can post on our Facebook or even post on your own and tag us in it so we find it. And bonus points if you get a fantastic picture of your recipe in use that we can include in the posts!
So get grilling and send us your best Boetje’s ideas!
Monday night we had the privilege of attending the Rock Island City Council meeting where the Mayor of Rock Island, Mr. Dennis Pauley, presented us with the official proclamation of Wednesday, May 25th, as Boetje’s Mustard Day! We are proud to be part of the Quad City community and honored with the support that we have been given over the years. Read on for the official (and officially fun!) proclamation!
WHEREAS, Boetje’s Mustard has been produced in Rock Island since 1889 and has been a Quad City favorite since that year; and
WHEREAS, the World now recognizes Boetje’s Dutch Stone Ground Mustard as the Grand Champion of all Mustards in the World as selected at the 2016 Worldwide Mustard Competition; and
WHEREAS, this is the first time in the 22 year history of the Competition that a Whole Grain Mustard has earned the title of Grand Champion; and
WHEREAS, we’re very proud to call Boetje’s our very own but willing to share it with the World,
NOW, THEREFORE, I, Dennis E Pauley, Mayor of the City of Rock Island, proclaim May 25, 2016 as
BOETJE’S MUSTARD DAY
and I urge all residents to join me in recognizing and participating in this special observance by topping your favorite dish with Boetje’s Mustard on this day.
Low in carbs, High in flavor!
Our Facebook friend Molly from an earlier recipe post has done it again! This time she came up with a delicious salad that is a turkey sandwich in a bowl.
Molly’s words: “Ok low carb friends, Turkey Sandwich Salad is my new obsession. Spring mix, deli turkey, shredded cheese, and mayo/Boetje’s mustard dressing. I’m in heaven.”
Send us your awesome recipes and photographs of them and we just might include them here!
Our Facebook friend Molly posted one of her favorite Boetje’s recipes and agreed to let us share it here. It’s a super simple pita sandwich that looks as great as it tastes, and is gloriously healthy to boot!
Molly starts with a pita base, (her favorite is Joseph’s pita,) and adds deli turkey and spring mix greens. She mixes together Boetje’s original stone ground mustard and a fresh avocado, and uses it to dip or spread onto the pita. Delicious and healthy!
Thank you for sharing, Molly!
As you may have heard by now, last week Boetje’s Mustard was named the GRAND CHAMPION in the World Wide Mustard Competition!! We have won Gold Medals before, and we did again this year in the Coarse Grained division, but this is our first Grand Champion win and we couldn’t be more excited!
We’ve had such great responses and support from our Quad City community and mustard lovers around the world, and we thank each of you for celebrating with us! Thanks to all of you who have liked, linked, tweeted, shared, posted, and even written your own stories about our win.
Now break out the Boetje’s and let’s celebrate!
The National Mustard Museum in Middleton, Wisconsin is celebrating their 24th Birthday this month! They carry more than 5800 different varieties of mustard in their shop, including both our classic old-world flavored Boetje’s Mustard, as well as our newest Bourbon Barrel Aged Boetje’s. If you are ever going to be in the area, stop by and tell them Boetje’s sent you. And if it’s in April, wish them a Happy Birthday too!
What goes great with mustard? Why, Onions of course! This post from TheOnion.com had us laughing.
We all know that you can braise your burgers with Boetje’s Mustard, but what about your Easter ham or lamb chops? Here is a delicious recipe that you can easily be used on either pork or lamb and is sure to delight your guests at Easter dinner.

One year ago yesterday we introduced our new Bourbon Barrel Aged Boetje’s Mustard, and it sold out within hours! We’ve upped our production of the tangy taste treat and these days you can find it on the grocery store shelves in most Quad City Area groceries. You can also order it by giving us a call at the plant and we can ship it to you.
Click on the link below for a fun throwback to a live taste testing as we introduced the new flavor.
