Wholewheat bread with pork sausage and dijon mustardOriginating in Dijon, France in 1856, the namesake mustard of this region is still a popular culinary choice.

When Jean Naigeon first substituted the usual vinegar ingredient in mustard for verjuice—an acidic juice that comes from unripened grapes—he created a recipe that was unique and delicious. It is the highest quality of mustard seeds, along with the means by which they are processed which causes the unique flavour of Dijon mustard.

For a while, only Dijon mustard that was produced in Dijon could bear the name, but today it is a generic term, and therefore any product that is made from the Dijon recipe can be referred to as Dijon mustard. One way to insure that you are purchasing the highest quality Dijon mustard, is to go to the source.
