Mustarding Up Some Courage

You probably don't think much about that yellow stuff you put on hamburgers and hot dogs.

But there is a top mustard of the world, one that towers among all others, and some local mustard enthusiasts are about to choose which one that is.

Judging began Sunday for the world-wide mustard competition.

The contest is held, fittingly, at the Mount Horeb mustard museum, and the judges take their job and their condiments very seriously.

"Literally the eyes of the mustard world are on Mt. Horeb now. The opening round will select from over 350 entries from as far away as Japan, England, Germany, France," says Barry Levenson, curator of the museum.

NBC-15's own Leigh Mills and Michele Riell put their taste buds to the test, as guest judges.

The grand champion round is February 18th; that's also when they'll auction off this piece of art, called "The First 27 Virtues of Mustard."
