Dijon Mustard Substitute

“I’m not a big fan of mustard, so I rarely have anything other than plain yellow mustard or dry mustard hanging around. But occasionally, a recipe will call for Dijon. Now this may not equal a fancy artisan Dijon mustard, but it is a fine substitute when it is going to be mixed into another recipe. But beware! This is SPICY, so much more so than your typical Dijon mustard out of the jar.” – April Ferre
