Best Mustards according to Every Day with Rachael Ray

Every Day with Rachael Ray has researched mustards and listed the following as the best mustards in a variety of categories:

BEST ODDBALL: Inglehoffer Creamy Dill Mustard with Capers.  Fragrant, with herbal hints (thanks to dill) as well as pickled capers and lemon, this silky mustard "hit the tangy spot." Tasters said they'd use it to add zing to potato salad or balance rich smoked salmon. ($1.69 for 4 ounces, at grocery stores)

BEST HOT: Silver Spring Beer'n Brat Horseradish Mustard.  If juicy brats and spicy mustard are best friends, this "addictively spicy" mustard makes them BFFs. Capable of cutting through the fattiest meats, it screams with "clean, fresh horseradish" grated straight from the root. ($2.79 for 9.5 ounces, at grocery stores)

BEST DELI: Hellmann's Deli Mustard.  Some mustards confuse "grainy" with "gritty." Not Hellman's. This hearty deli brown "has just enough texture to satisfy," said one taster. Our panel also raved about the slightly sweet and mildly spicy flavor combo, courtesy of horseradish and mustard seeds. ($2.50 for 9.5 ounces, at grocery stores)

BEST BALLPARK: Raye's Mustard Top Dog.  Raye's Mustard Mill in Eastport, Maine, hit a home run with this "grown-up" winner. Unlike its too-vinegary competitors, Raye's uses an old-school cold-grinding technique that preserves the intense flavor. A "complex kick" of chili powder earned it even more fans. ($4.50 for 9 ounces, at select grocery stores)

BEST HONEY: Honeycup Uniquely Sharp Mustard.
 At first sight, this looks a helluva lot like caramel. Glossy, goopy and golden-brown, it opens with a "molasseslike sweetness" and "finishes with a kick" from cider vinegar. Try it as a dip for soft pretzels, with salty country ham, or straight out of the jar. ($4.59 for 8 ounces, at grocery stores)

BEST DIJON: Grey Poupon Dijon Mustard.  Grey Poupon turns out gourmet mustard that, one taster noted, would "class up a boring turkey sandwich." Almost custardlike, this smooth mix of mustard seeds, white wine and vinegar, inspired by the original recipe from Dijon, France, has a well-balanced taste. ($3.19 for 8 ounces, at grocery stores)
