“Mustard” shows itself everywhere in the September landscape. Jennifer offers an easy challenge this week!
Goldenrod, and other wildflowers, bloom in the rich, dark shade of golden yellow known as mustard.
Leaves fade to this shade before turning brown and crinkly.
Seeing the shade in nature recalls the spicy, bitter taste of good mustard.
I prefer mustard made from coarsely ground seeds, rich with texture and bursting with flavor. Spread on a slightly sweet brioche bun, it is the perfect accent for a black bean burger and sweet potato fries!
And “mustard” flowers and leaves spice up our autumn landscapes.
Heralds of colorful changes in progress, accent against late summer greens; we welcome the golden “mustards” of September.
