It’s the unsung hero of the kitchen cupboard! Watch Dietitian Patricia Chuey on CTV Vancouver as she shows us unique ways to use mustard.

We Are The Best

Canada’s prairies produce enough mustard seeds for billions of jars each year.

Did you know that Canada is the largest producer of high-quality mustard in the world? Condiment makers like Maille use Canadian seeds for their famous Dijon. In fact, they end up buying more than 5,000 tonnes of yield every year — enough for more than 1.9 billion small jars of mustard.

Farmers like Kevin Hursh from Cabri, Sask., are part of a generation of farmers focused on international exports: Europeans are the biggest market for the brown mustard, while Americans consume mostly yellow mustard. Join chef Ricardo Larrivée as he gets the inside scoop on the third most popular condiment (after salt and pepper).

A Season To Shift Your Choices

May is #SaladMonth, June is #FreshFruitAndVegetablesMonth, and there’s encouragement all year to make #HalfYourPlate full of colourful vegetables and fruit. With an abundance of produce available this time of year, eating fruit and vegetables should be a breeze. They’re relatively quick to prepare and can be affordable when buying in season, canned or frozen varieties.
