Sweet Oktoberfest Mustard is the traditional Bavarian condiment that is served together with Weisswurst and Brezeln. Although mustard is a very old spice that
originated in China and arrived in Europe during the times of the Roman Empire it took until the middle of the 19th century until the mustard seeds and other condiments were used for the first time to invent a sweet tasting mustard. The man that came up with this brilliant idea was Johann Conrad Develey. He opened a mustard factory in Munich in 1845 and initially produced the then common mild and hot mustards. But he was always out to improve his mustard range and loved to experiment with new ingredients which led him one day to invent the first sweet mustard.
It took only a little while till the mustard was perfected and was matched perfectly with the traditional Bavarian Weisswurst (Veal Sausage) and a few fresh Brezeln / Pretzels. These days the sweet Weiss Wurst mustard or Oktoberfest mustard will not only be served at any feast in Bavaria, together with Brezeln and a pair of poached Veal sausages it is consumed by Bavarian's and people from all walks of life as a second breakfast or at any time of the day.
