Edmond Fallot, Basil Dijon Mustard, 7.2oz/205g/190ml, Product of France

 

Ingredients:  water, mustard seeds, white wine(17.2%), vinegar, basil(8%), salt, natural flavour, spice

 

Basil and Dijon Mustard come together to give a most flavorful and distinctive mustard. Try this intensely-flavored mustard on a tomato cheese tart (kind of like pizza but more "French"). Great on chicken sandwiches, too. And mix it with oil and vinegar for a great dressing over fresh tomatoes with mozzarella

The distinct high quality and flavour of this speciality mustard is due to the traditional grinding of the mustard seeds with silex grindstones.

DIJON MUSTARD

White, strong or extra strong, the paste is obtained by the mixing together of one third black seed (Brassica Nigra) or brown seed (Brassica Juncea) with verjuice (2/3).
Originally, "verjuice" designated the juice of grapes that had not reached maturity. Nowadays, this liquid could just as easily be white wine, red wine, the must of the grapes, vinegar, or even a concoction of these liquids, with salt added.

One golden rule has to be respected: the total content in dry matter must be at least 28%. This content corresponds with a dry extract content from mustard seed making up at least 22% of the end product.
This mixture is then milled and then sieved, thus producing a smooth, pale yellow paste with a characteristic bite, due to the natural development of the taste during manufacture as from the moment that the kernel of the seed comes into contact with the verjuice. This intense perception "mellows" with time.

At the FALLOT mill, the milling, still carried out using traditional mill stones, thus avoiding overheating of the seed, retains all of the flavour and bite of the seed for an exceptionally long time.
