Making a Delicious Whole Grain Cognac Mustard

Buying whole grain cognac mustard is expensive, a dinky jar can cost you 5 bucks and last about 5 minutes. Especially if you are like me and enjoy dipping your pretzels in a delicious mustard.

So, my husband had the innovative idea of making our own cognac mustard, something I would have never thought of. Surprisingly, I had never seen a cooking show on how to make mustard, which made me wonder if it was so complicated that it could never be explained in one short 30 minute television episode. Nope, it’s actually so easy that I am now annoyed with the grocery store for overcharging.

    • It is just a little spicy. I think you could add peppercorns to the recipe if you’d like to spice it up more. It’s super easy to make!
