Will My Weapons-grade Mustard Mellow?

cayjohan | Jun 15, 2009 06:24 AM

Dijon mustard is a staple in this house. Having had some good experience with Trader Joe's condiments, I tried a jar of the TJs Dijon to save a few cents. Holy Cow! I am a fan of the Vaporously Pungent Food Group and happily load on the horseradish and strong mustards, but THIS stuff is beyond strong - nearly inedibly so.

So: will mustard diminish in strength over time the way horseradish does? If I keep this jar around, am I going to find a more palatable condiment developing over time? IsTJs Dijon always like a trench warfare weapon, or did I just have the bad luck of an extra-noxious batch?

Curious,
Cay
