This came from a friend in West Virginia. It's very good for dipping vegetables or on crackers.

Awesome mustard! I cut the salt in half and blended a mixture of banana peppers, jalapeños, and cayennes in my food processor. After mixing everything together in the pot I used my immersion blender for a smoother consistency. I cooked it for about 8-10 minutes, stirring constantly, to get it to the desired thickness. Then, I processed the jars in a hot water bath for 10 minutes. Great stuff! I may try cutting the sugar down a little next time.
