Dijon Mustard with Tarragon

Why this recipe?  One of my favorite meals is a roast beef panini with Dijon mustard fresh from the press! So I decided to tackle making a Dijon Mustard of my own.  It is tantalizingly thick, smooth, and creamy with a hint of Tarragon. What's more: it's easy to make—the hard part is waiting a couple of weeks for the flavors to mellow and come together!

The Flip: (per 1 tbsp serving)
  • cut the sodium by 75mg
  • added tarragon to enhance the mustard 
My thoughts:  To prepare a regular Dijon Mustard, omit the tarragon.  

It's very important to give your Dijon a couple of weeks in your refrigerator for the flavors to come together.

I plan on making small jars for special gifts during the holiday!  I hope you enjoy!
