Mustard – Yes Please!

So I was browsing today at Drive Organics – great store with a great bulk section – and I cam across this thing of beauty:

Condiments have been hard to come by, they all seem to have a plastic lid, or a metal cap with a plastic liner, but not this guy.  It has a latch top with a real rubber seal! very exciting.

The first thing that came to mind here (and really when I thought of our North American facination with over-plastic-ing things) is our obsession with ‘food safety’.  Now truthfully, I am glad we have strong standards with some things, but really do we need to put a plastic seal on EVERY food item in the store.

I was worried I would open the latch, flip the lid and see a plastic seal, and lucky for us that wasn’t the case.  In case you were wondering – its a product of France!

La Parfait indeed! (that’s what the jar says if you can’t read it).
