Dijon mustard is a prepared
mustard made from husked black or brown mustard seeds,
where black seeds are usually considered the strongest and
most flavorful. Originally Dijon mustard was blended with verjuice,
but today's Dijon mustard is usually blended with wine
and other spices are added to lend it a special spicy
flavor. True Dijon mustard is actually pale yellow and not
brown. It comes in many additional flavored varieties but
also ranges from mild in flavor to the very hot.
Historians are not in agreement as to who actually
created the original Dijon mustard recipe, but most do
tend to agree that the recipe first appeared in Dijon,
France; hence the name Dijon mustard.
