Shades of, Picksburgh, Pa. The spicy brown mustard was the give away!! This has such a deep flavor and stick to your ribs comfort!! As I am Italian, just a few cloves of garlic went in. A loaf of warm crusty bread, fried apples and a glass of red made the perfect meal on a cold winters night!!raf

Now a family favourite. My husband loved it even though he does not like mustard.
