I have made this mustard many times. Now friends are bringing their empty jars back and asking them to be filled. I use this in everything from potato salad to spreading on fish before grilling. It is also great just as a dip for honey wheat pretzels.

This recipe has had great reviews, but whew, this ended up tasting like the hot mustard they serve with egg rolls at Chinese restaurants, not even a hint of wine, just dry mustard. Went back and re-read the ingredient listing, and I didn’t mess anything up, followed the recipe to the letter. To try to salvage it, I added more vinegar, sugar, and wine, and still, all I could taste was the ground mustard. I think all of the ingredients are right, I just have to wonder if the proportions are accurate, ground mustard is pretty powerful stuff. Sorry, not sure what happened here, but this just didn’t work for us.

Add a little salt... this recipe is great to serve on corned beef & cabbage if you keep it a little runny (cook it for less than 8 minutes, till it looks "sauce" like).

This recipe was great! I used an Oatmeal Stout beer instead of wine and I'm very happy with how it turned out. It's tangy and creamy. I agree, a little salt was needed.

I made this for Christmas gifts once and now I have to make it again and again as I get requests from my family for it. It is awesome. I follow the recipe exactly.

Really fantastic. I did add 1/4 tsp. of salt and next time I will halve the sugar. We love mustard and I have a feeling I'll be keeping this sauce around.

OMG! Nothing could be easier! I cut the sugar down to a little less than 1/2 cup at my husband's request and added 1/2 tsp. salt. I almost devoured an entire jar dipping pretzels in it. REALLY good mustard. I won't be buying Dijon anymore!

I made this for christmas gifts last year and everyone loved it! I have many people now expecting to get some of this again this year for christmas. My fiance's son also loved it, and he claims to hate any kind of mustard "except that one that Crystal makes at christmastime"! thanks hal!
