Colman’s is one of the few food brands whose history goes way back to the early 1800’s. Colman’s English Mustard originated in Norfolk, Britain in 1814. Colman’s instant popularity quickly made it a favorite condiment on British dinner tables. In 1866, the founder, Jeremiah Colman, was bestowed the honor of mustard-maker to Queen Victoria. Just 14 years later, the sensational product--in its legendary red and yellow tin-- was brought to the United States, where it has since won the hearts of many American families. It has also become America’s choice of condiments for Christmas feasts, adding its famous kick to almost any holiday meal.

From the very start, Colman’s has harvested only the best mustard seeds. Today Colman’s is still harvested and pressed in Norfolk, staying true to its customary tradition that has made this product the favorite spicy mustard of choice for the past two centuries. In fact, every minute of the day, 45 jars of Colman’s mustard are bought in various locations across the globe.

This Christmas, Colman’s English Mustard will offer a fresh, spicy addition to various holiday meals. From turkey to ham, soups and salad dressings, Colman has got it covered. Use Colman’s English Mustard in preparing baked holiday ham and sweet potato mustard mash (see cooking instructions below). Also take a quick look at for a list of amazing recipes.
