Visit to Rolph's

I was in the area of Rolph's and had wanted to pick up some mustard recommend by Saucisson Mac. I had already looked for the mustard in a few stores that I get to more regularly than Rolph's without success. I wasn't sure Rolph's would have it...but I was pretty sure it would be there and Rolph's did not disappoint.

While I was there I picked up a little mini ham to eat with the mustard for dinner that night. The recommendation was to wrap the ham in foil and cook it in a 350 degree oven. The cut is lean so it could dry out quickly.

After 5 minutes in the oven, the power went out. So once the sweet potatoes I was steaming were cooked, I put the ham still wrapped in foil in the steamer. The stove still works without power, the oven doesn't. Disaster averted.

Good mustard and good ham. I should get to Rolph's more often than I do. But everyone that's ever been to Rolph's feels that way.


  1. I had no idea. Thank you for sharing. I'm going to have to face Glen, ashamed of my long absence from his store, and pick up a jar of this next week.

  2. I like the mustard, but I go through fairly regular mustard phases. I was on a Weber's kick for awhile. And Silver Springs horseradish mustard before that. This seems like a good Dijon mustard to me. Or I guess, Dijon seems like a good version of this. Brace yourself for a little sticker shock. The bottle of mustard cost almost as much as the ham at just over $7.It is nothing like the "Dusseldorf" mustards at NYC delis.
