Did You Know Tuesday

Did you know that the last traditional stone-ground mustard mill is located in the United States' easternmost-city, Eastport, Maine?  (Eastport is first point in the US that the morning sun touches.)  Raye's Mustard has been producing stone-ground mustard since 1900, and has been in its current location since 1903.

Raye's has produced award-winning mustards, including two awards this year when their "Down East Schooner" mustard won the gold medal in the Classic Yellow Mustard category at the 2009 World-Wide Mustard Competition (held in Napa Valley, CA), and their "Winter Garden" (with hints of dill, garlic and celery) won the bronze medal in the Herb Mustard category.

The Raye family still runs the mill and produces a great line of gourmet mustards.  Their mill has a retail store, the Pantry Store, where their products can be purchased.  They also have free tours of their facility.  Visit their website here, Raye's Mustard, and if you're ever up in Maine, think about taking their tour.  Until then, look for their product.  It's wicked good, ayuh.
