This mustard may be stored in the refrigerator for up to two months. The flavor is spicy at first, but mellows quickly, and is great with cured meats.

I made the mustard yesterday

I made the mustard yesterday and today and ran into a couple issues. After soaking the seeds about 18 hours, I put the ingredients in the blender. There was very little liquid left so I needed to add water to be able to blend the mustard, probably at least 1/2 cup. It also took much longer than two minutes to blend. I continued to compare the texture against a mustard I had in the fridge. It took at least 4 minutes. In the end, there was less than two cups.

The tarragon adds a wonderful flavor. I'm going to try to preserve it so when I give it to my friends they don't have to keep it refrigerated.

Thank you for the recipe.
