Great recipe for deli-style mustard! This is very quick and easy to make. I did sift the mustard while the vinegar was boiling to help prevent lumps. I tried some the night I made it and again the next day - the flavor benefits from sitting and letting the flavors blend. If you really like it spicy, use 1-2 tbs of Oriental Hot Mustard mixed in with the regular mustard. Thanks, Bergy - I'm going to have some of this made from now on!
