Montana Girl mustard is simply the best sweet/ hot mustard I’ve ever had…and I’m a mustard aficionado, my whole family can tell you. I take up a whole shelf in the refrigerator door with my mustard “ finds”. I found yours at Chupa’s in Parma and will hunt it down (they stopped carrying it ! Boo!) . It is simply my favorite mustard. It turns a ham sandwich into heaven !! Keep that fabulous mustard recipe coming!! Jo Anne B.
