French Style Mustard

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Bergy

For a variation on this mustard when it has just cooled add 4 tsp drained rinsed & crushed green peppercorns. To keep an opened jar of mustard fresh longer put a slice of lemon on top & close. Be careful how long you store a mustard that has eggs in it - you are safe for at least 2 weeks

this was easier to make then i expected. you can't get tarragon vinegar here and i didn't have any tarragon so i crushed a half tsp of basil and a half tsp of rosemary with the salt and sugar in the mortar and pestle and mixed with the mustard powder, used free run eggs and white vinegar. as suggested i let it mellow overnight but it was not at all to my liking. i added 2 Tbs extra sugar and 1/4 tsp extra salt and still the underlying flavor here is BITTER. sorry but i couldn't eat this. maybe i just don't like french mustard.
