German Mustard is served with all kinds of sausages such as Bratwurst, Bockwurst, Frankfurter and all other sausages. It tastes very good with cold cuts, cold Frikadellen, Salami or Leberkäse.
We also use mustard for cooking as well like for the dish German Rouladen – Beef Rolls. for the dish “Senfeier or Verlorene Eier” or for the Düseldorf Style Mustard Soup.


Why is German Mustard so different from other Mustards?

Because it has
– No sugar added,
– No preservatives,
– No artificial coloration,
– and it is made out of simple and natural Non-GMO ingredients – that’s why it is so good.
