This was really, really great. I feel compelled to note, though, that it comes from "Gourmet Mustards: The How-Tos of Making & Cooking with Mustards," by Helene Sawyer and Cheryl Long. I just finished making it from their book, and checked here to see if it had been posted (because I was going to!) I'm glad you made it public; this is a wonderful recipe. I've tried several other Dijon mustard recipes, but this is by far the easiest, and frankly I think it gives the best results. I used two different types of mustard powders from Penzey's -- the milder yellow mustard powder, and the spicy-hot Chinese mustard powder. I also threw in some juniper berries with the onion and garlic (got that from another recipe). I will never buy Dijon mustard again! This was much, much better, and not too time-consuming to make. Thanks for posting this!

This stuff is CRAZY good!!! Actually, I'm thinking that it should be renamed as "Honey Dijon Mustard" because the honey flavor really comes through nicely. The only change I made was to add about 1 1/2 TBLS of whole mustard seeds....just because. (I think they add to the look and the texture as well as the taste) And it turned out beautifully. Thanks for a forever keeper!

There is absolutely nothing wrong with this mustard. It is a bit different from commercial but so what! Keep both on hand. This is good in recipes and on sandwiches. Same as the commercial stuff but a lot less costly. Kind of neat to make your own as well!!

I made half a recipe and have been using this in other dishes. Great Dijon for a variety of uses. Much cheaper than what I was buying so will continue to make this one.

Oh yeah, YUM!! I'm not a huge fan of the commercial dijon mustards, but this homemade version is excellent! I'm actually looking for things to use it on. I will definitely be making this again. Thank you for posting this recipe.

This is great! And really easy. However I feel I should caution you with regard to the mustard measurement. 8 oz. is a cup in liquid measurements. If you use 8 oz of dry mustard powder it will blow you across the room. I made half the recipe and 1/2 cup weighed 1.75 oz so if you are using a scale instead of a measuring cup be warned. Otherwise a 5 star recipe.

Just finished making this and all I can say is wow! I had tried making seeded mustard which was brilliant, so thought Dijon was the next step and I love how easy this was and so tasty now, so looking forward to tasting after a couple of weeks. Thanks for posting this great recipe
