Grainy Mustard

We make our mustard with brown and "Oriental" golden mustard seeds, using a recipe we got from a stand at the Royal Agricultural Winter Fair in Toronto in 1998. We'll never buy commercially made mustard again.

Grainy mustard is fabulous with roast ham; it's equally good in beet salad, with steamed green beans, in salad dressings, on hamburgers, etc. etc.

The last time we bought a jar of mustard was at a moutardier in Charroux, "un des plus beaux villages de France". The mustard made there was spectacular and we had to buy a jar. We had no idea until we got home that it is particularly sought out. (See http://www.france-voyage.com/tourism/charroux-mustard-1776.htm)

We kept our little jar; we couldn't bear to throw it away. Now it holds face cream....
