What Is Dijon Mustard?
Originally from Dijon, France, this mustard is a pale grayish-yellow mustard that has a clean, sharp flavor which can range from mild to spicy hot.
It is made from brown or black mustard seeds, white wine, unfermented grape juice known as must and various seasonings.
Probably the best-known brand in the United States is from the house of Poupon and the best-loved variety is Grey Poupon.
White mustard seeds, which are much less spicy, are used to make American ballpark mustard while a combination of white and brown mustard seeds are used to make English mustard.
Chinese and European mustards are made with brown mustard seeds which also are used for pickling.
What Makes Mustard Hot?
On their own, mustard seeds are not spicy but when they are cracked or ground and mixed with cool or cold water or another liquid, a chemical reaction takes place that turns up the heat. The resulting oil can be so volatile that it can cause burning or blistering. So any attempts at making prepared mustard from scratch should be approached with caution.
