Welcome to Grilling Season! (A message from Boetje’s Mustard, your official sponsor of deliciousness!)

Published on May 18, 2015 in Gourmet, Mustard, Recipes

Memorial Day is around the corner and you know what that means… it’s officially Grilling Season!  Dust off the barbecue, toss in some new charcoal, and light ‘er up!

There are all kinds of amazing ways for you to enjoy Boetje’s Mustard with your cookouts.  Whether on your burgers and brats, zesting up your deviled eggs, or spicing up your grilled veggies like asparagus and corn, our old world stone ground flavor will kick your recipes into high gear.

If you have a favorite grill recipe to share that uses our traditional Boetje’s Mustard or our new Bourbon Barrel Aged Boetje’s Mustard, send it to us on our Facebook page! We love hearing from our friends and often share those recipes here.  Tag us in a picture with your recipe and we just might use that too.

Happy Grilling, everyone!

Boetje’s Bourbon Barrel Aged Mustard, Round 2

Another batch of our new Bourbon Barrel Aged mustard is on its way!  We are finishing up the bottling process today and will have fresh jars of our newest Boetje’s flavor available this weekend!

Your first opportunity to purchase this new batch will be at the First Friday event in LeClaire, Iowa this week, May 1st.  Available exclusively at Mississippi River Distilling Company, the product will be sold on a first come, first served basis, and once it’s gone, it’s gone.  The event begins at 5:30 pm but plan to be there before then.  We are told that last time a line began to assemble a couple hours early and that all jars were sold within 20 minutes. Please be kind to the folks at the Distillery if they are sold out before you get there!

Your next opportunity will be on Monday, May 4th, here at our bottling plant in Rock Island.  We will have jars available to sell beginning at 8:00 am, although we also sold out on the first day last time.  (If you come out to see us on Monday and we are sold out, please be nice to us too! :) )

Thank you all for your tremendous support of this new product!  We will get another batch in the barrel and out to you as soon as we can!

Update 4:16pm:  We’re sorry to say that we aren’t going to be able to get a batch to Hy-Vee this time around after all.  I apologize for the incorrect information published earlier.  We’ll keep working on it, folks!

Announcing: Bourbon Barrel Boetje’s!

We are excited to introduce our newest creation, a collaboration of two great Quad Cities natives: Boetje’s Mustard & Mississippi River Distilling Company!  Introducing our newest creation, Bourbon Barrel Boetje’s Mustard!

20313bed-6ced-4b9c-86cd-36fcbca3e712

This tasty treat is the brain child of Boetje Food Inc’s Production Manager, Harrison Kropp, who contacted Ryan Burchett, owner and distiller at the Mississippi River Distilling Company in LeClaire, Iowa.  The distillery has a distinct focus on keeping things local, and they were excited to be part of this new Boetje’s creation.  The new mustard flavor is created by soaking it in oak casks originally used to age Cody Road Bourbon.  This gives it a distinct and unique twist with the original Boetje’s kick!

The new Bourbon Barrel Aged Boetje’s Mustard will only be produced in small batches to begin with, and will have limited distribution. Beginning Monday it will be on sale at both our Boetje’s bottling plant & store at 2736 Twelfth Street in Rock Island and at the Mississippi River Distilling Company store located at 303 Cody Road in LeClaire.

SNEAK PEEK
However, if you can’t wait until Monday to get your hands on this amazing mustard, come by the distillery during LeClaire’s First Friday event this weekend!  Boetje’s representatives will be on hand with samples of the new flavor and you’ll have your first opportunity to buy it. Plus while you’re there try any of the distillery’s delicious beverages, and stay around town for other First Friday happenings.

Get info on Mississippi River Distilling Company here and their First Friday plans here.

It’s a Brand New Year of Boetje’s

Welcome to 2015!  We’ve had a couple weeks now to recover from the holidays and we’re looking forward to a new year of possibilities.  On a personal level we have goals that are probably the same as some of yours… drop a few pounds, eat healthy, spend more time with the people we love.  As a company we are looking forward to adding new stores that carry our product, and to continuing to develop the friendships we’ve made online with folks like you.  Thank you for your support of Boetje’s Mustard over the years! We promise to do our best to keep delivering consistently delicious mustard!

Boetje’s Beer Cheese Fondue

We know that you, our fans and loyal customers, have lots of creative ways to use Boetje’s mustard in your recipes.  We invite you to share those recipes and pictures with us on our Facebook page, and in turn, we like to share them with all of you here.

This is an amazing fondue recipe sent to us by our Facebook friend Leslie P.  She found a recipe on epicurious.com and adapted it, and we’ll share her adaption with you here.

Boetje’s Beer Cheese Fondue

Ingredients

1 cup/240 ml pilsner-style beer or American lager
1/2 lb Gruyère cheese, shredded
1/2 lb Emmentaler cheese, shredded (Raclette and Gouda are also good options)
1 tbsp cornstarch
2 tsp Boetje’s mustard
Dash of Worcestershire sauce
Pinch of paprika
Fine sea salt, such as fleur de sel or sel gris

Preparation

Bring the beer to a boil over medium-high heat in a fondue pot or a medium heavy saucepan. Reduce the heat to medium-low so the beer is gently simmering.

Toss the cheese with the cornstarch in a medium bowl. Add the cheese mixture to the beer one large handful at a time, stirring the cheese in a figure-eight pattern until completely melted before adding more. Stir in the mustard, Worcestershire sauce, and paprika, and season with salt. Serve immediately.
Leslie also added a few personal notes & tips for using this recipe:
Notes

You can add more cornstarch if cheese is too runny. I have not had this issue. I suggest avoiding low calorie or light beers, as they may have too much water.

Serve with pretzel bread, apples, crudite, or even sausages and pickled veggies.

 

We love this recipe!  Now it’s YOUR turn.  What do you do with your Boetje’s and what is a new and creative way to bring the Old World flavor into your new world foods?  Send us your recipes & tag us in your food photos on Facebook!
