2016 Boetje’s Mustard Day!

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.

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!

Boetje’s Perfect Pita

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!

Happy Anniversary to Boetje’s Bourbon Barrel Aged Mustard!

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.

 

 

For a reminder of the WQAD news item that kicked off the frenzy, check out this link:
